New York Rangers broadcast under fire for bullying young fan

TNT's broadcast of last night's game between the New York Rangers and the Carolina Hurricanes is currently under fire for bullying a young fan.

The Hurricanes and the Rangers faced off for an exciting game six last night in Carolina. After entering the third period with a 3-1 lead, the Rangers came back strong and ended up winnign 5-3, thanks to Cris Kreider scoring a hat trick.

With that victory, the Rangers managed to eliminate the Hurricanes from the playoffs and clinch their berth to the Conference Finals. As they wait to find out who'll join them in the third round between the Boston Bruins and the Florida Panthers, on social medias, it's been tough for the Rangers' broadcasting team.

A viral video shows a sad Canes fan crying in the stands after the loss:

The sour taste of defeat is even worse when you get laughed at for showing emotions. Especially when you're a kid.

Showing such images makes good TV. Rangers fans probably loved to see Canes fans angry. In the playoffs, one fanbase is sure to end up sad after it's over. And all over the world, in every sports, the TV shows disappointed fans after a loss. But this is what makes victories even better, and that's the beauty of sports.
