David Simms, rink commentator at last Saturday night’s ice hockey game, made an ill-advised joke when two men were filmed on the “kiss-cam” – a live broadcast on the Arena in-house TV, a segment which normally encourages a man and his woman partner to kiss when the spotlight falls on them.
David Simms would you have said the same if a straight couple was kissing as a “joke” ? No you wouldn’t – We call your actions, homophobia covered as a “joke” and we do not see the funny part of your joke.
He told The Star: “I am not homophobic, you have known me long enough. I haven’t got a bad bone in my body.
