Raffi Torres F Phoenix Coyotes
Phoenix Coyotes forward Raffi Torres, a former #5 overall selection in the NHL draft, went slightly racist with the blackface as Jay Z for Halloween, with his wife playing to role of Beyonce. A veteran of 6 NHL teams caused a stir with this costume, and his agent Eustace King released a statement saying:
"Raffi's outfit was harmless, It's Halloween. People need to relax, enjoy spirit of holiday."
Fellow Coyote Paul Bissonnette went to twitter to defend his teammate, likely because he's the one who broadcasted the photo via his twitter, he said:
"As far as everyone trying to call "Racism" because Raffi dressed up like Jay-Z can simmer down, He's a huge Jay-Z fan."
