Family of Humboldt crash victim says no interviews for CTV unless Jess Allen is fired

15 novembre 2019
The father of one of the survivors of the Humboldt bus crash says he will no longer grant interviews to CTV unless The Social's Jess Allen is fired for her comments regarding hockey players. Tom Straschnitzki, the father of Ryan Straschnitzki, took to Twitter with the following statement:



Ryan Straschnitzki recently traveled to Thailand for spinal surgery and has been recovering some of his movement after the crash left him paralyzed from the chest down.

While discussing the Don Cherry controversy on The Social on Tuesday, Allen said she doesn't "worship at the altar of hockey" and found in her experience that those who do "all tended to be white boys who weren't, let's say, very nice." Her words caused a major backlash on social media, with #FireJessAllen trending on Twitter. Thursday night, Allen issued an apology on her Twitter account.



CTV attempted to reach out to Tom Straschnitzki regarding his Twitter post, but he would not respond.
