The Kings' official Twitter account received a game misconduct penalty Tuesday … from the Kings' front office.
Kevin Ryder, of KROQ's "Kevin & Bean" morning show, handled the Twitter posts for the Kings' Stanley Cup playoff game against the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday. He took over after the first period, with embarrassing results for the team.
At one point Ryder made light of sexual assault when describing a play that happened in front of the San Jose Sharks' net when the Kings' Anze Kopitar was knocked to the ice.
Complaints poured in via reply tweets. The Kings deleted the tweet and went into damage control, tweeting: "We apologize for the tweets that came from a guest of our organization. They were inappropriate and do not reflect the LA Kings."
