Evander Kane is a 21-year old who hasn’t worked in months. He must have saved up lots of money from summer jobs because early this morning he tweeted this picture of himself pretending to call Floyd Mayweather with a stack of hundred dollar bills from a balcony of a Las Vegas casino. Because that is the only way to get a hold of Floyd Mayweather. Seriously.
@EKande9Jets: Hey @FloydMayweather pick up your phone cause I’m callin #imdifferent
This has upset some fans according to the Winnipeg Free Press:
Twitter has exploded with Jets fans chastising Kane for the timing of the tweet.
The lockout has resulted in layoffs for employees around the NHL and eliminated work for game day staff in all 30 NHL cities.
Kane is a kid with lots of money (he signed a 6-year, $31.5 million contract in September) and even more free time on his hands because of the NHL lockout. Fans probably shouldn’t be mad at him for taking dumb college kid pictures in Vegas, but they have to be mad at someone.
