Rangers rookie Matt Rempe was suspended four games today for elbowing Devils defenseman Jonas Siegenthaler in the head.

Devils Fans Go After Rempe Online

Since the hit was made, many Devils fans have been going after the rookie and his family online, making inappropriate and dangerous remarks. Among the things Devils fans have resorted to, is making fun of Rempe's father, who passed away six years ago.
naaaa its funny. i think Rempe was waving to his dad last night in the stands...

These posts are just an example of the kinds of things people have been saying since the hit.
Rempe is no-talent clown straight out of Slapshot. Just suspend him 80 games. He'll be working on his dad's construction crew this time next year.

While the hit was dangerous, and certainly illegal, that does not justify this kind of behavior online. As such, these fans should feel ashamed of themselves. Sadly, that is unlikely.

Fans Call On Spittin Chiclets To Denounce Attacks On Rempe

Some fans have now called on the Spittin Chiclets podcast to denounce these comments. They started to come out after the show covered the incident in last night's game. Presumably, many of these comments are being made by fans of the show.
@spittinchiclets I'm a huge fan, love what you do for the game, but be aware these threats against Rempe's families came after your podcast by listeners. I know you guys didn't say anything bad - but you guys gotta say something. Mocking his dad? Threatening his sis? Be leaders

So far, the show has not addressed this. It is not clear whether or not they intend to do so.
