Patrik Laine Calls Out Podcast Who Joked About His Mental Health

Published February 12, 2024 at 6:20 PM

A few weeks ago, Patrik Laine of the Columbus Blue Jackets bravely seeked help from the NHL Player Assistance Program for mental health reasons. An act that goes unnoticed but shows just how brave people are when they decide to seek help. In a podcast called "BNB Round Table" the member Zach poked fun regarding Laine's mental health, something that should not be talked about or made fun of.

Laine calls out the podcast

On social media, particularly "X", Laine called them out.

Patrik Laine has spoken out on X(twitter) after a podcast came out called «BNB Round Table» where someone named «Zach» decided it was okay to make a joke about Laine's mental health.

The joke, specifically, can be found on Laine's X. But they refer to him contemplating «Remington Retirement» which is a referral to s**cide.

It's never write to make fun of someone who is trying to better himself, in fact it contradicts everything about what Laine is trying to do and can be a reason Laine may feel insecure and have troubles even more with his mental health.
