The Philadelphia Flyers’ left winger Scott Hartnell accidentally joined the Ku Klux Klan on Sunday night, due to the player’s confusion over what the letters “KKK” meant, witnesses say.
“He thought it stood for Krunchy Kake and Kookies ice cream,” said actual Ku Klux Klan member, Joey Bob Mullet. “So I said, yeah man – that’s what it stands for. Now why don’t you put on this hat and take a picture in front of my baby’s crib and the crosses I’m fixin’ to burn later.”
Mullet added that he put the number “19″ on the headdress so Hartnell could wear it during post-game interviews and “still feel cool-looking.”
After Hartnell allowed the picture to be taken and Mullet uploaded it on the web, he asked where the ice cream was.
“I thought there was gonna be ice cream,” Hartnell said. “But there wasn’t. I was tricked.”
After being informed that he was wearing a KKK headdress by his fans, Hartnell was aghast.
“I’m from Canada, so I had never heard of those guys,” Hartnell said. “We don’t have bad things in Canada. We just don’t.”
Leaders of the Ku Klux Klan released a statement apologizing to the members for the incident because “We ain’t Flyers fans,” the statement read.
