PK Subban has been criticized for commenting on Tuesday night when he aimed at Lizzo’s body. This happened after the Florida Panthers defeated Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday night.

ESPN co-anchor John Buccigross said the Toronto Maple Leafs should “pack a lunch” after their disappointing loss to the Maple Leafs. Buccigross suggested that a ‘packed lunch’ will energize the team to play against their opponents.

To this, PK Subban replied that Maple Leafs should “pack a Lizzo-sized lunch” in reference to the singer’s large body for the measurement method. This comment from a former NHL player didn’t go down well with netizens and they immediately slammed it on social media.

Ugh’. While the other wrote, “The disgusting people enjoying PK Subban’s comment about Lizzo are exactly WHY he should have kept his mouth shut. I’ve been a PK fan and supporter from day one – but are recent comments about Pride and now this? I don’t see him the same way anymore. This is not okay’.
