Leave those people alone! Haven't they suffered enough?!
As seen here:
Almost immediately, the athlete was blasted on social media for harassing people who are already so oppressed and humiliated by society.
On Monday, Avery went on Twitter to defend his actions, saying he isn't harassing anybody!
Congrats to the happy couple!
Sean Avery and Hilary Rhoda have had a long road together — they initially met in 2010 before getting more serious two years ago — but the two have officially taken their vows and they are now man and wife!
Of course, this comes just days after Avery was arrested on drug possession and criminal mischief charges, but the ceremony appears to have gone on without a hitch.
Ch-ch-check out Instagram pics from the ceremony (below):
Former NHLer Sean Avery Arrested For Drug Possession & Criminal Mischief Days Before Wedding — But He's ALREADY Prepared To Defend Himself!
Former New York Rangers player and notorious bad boy Sean Avery was arrested in Southampton last week and charged with criminal mischief and two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance.
According to police, the 35-year-old was seen throwing objects (reportedly, rocks) at speeding cars the day before he was pulled over at a routine traffic stop. He was found in possession of two prescription drugs, acetaminophen with oxycodone, and roxicodone.
The NHL star's attorney Edward Burke Jr. insists his client is actually prescribed the medications that were the basis of the charge, and he "looks forward" to addressing the other charge of criminal mischief in court.
On Tuesday, the Canadian native took to Twitter to prove that he wasn't carrying the substances illegally, sharing:
Ugh! When are athletes going to learn that people may not be able to hear them, but they can ALWAYS read their lips!
In yet another example of homophobia in sports, a player on the Philadelphia Flyers, Wayne Simmonds, called New York Ranger Sean Avery a "f*cking f*ggot" during a televised preseason game.
Apparently the two had a scuffle beforehand, like we've come to expect from hockey, but was an offensive homophobic slur really necessary?
