The New York Rangers are investigating how prospect K'Andre Miller's video chat with fans was "hijacked" by racial slurs directed toward the African American player.

Miller, 20, took part in a video Q&A on Zoom that was limited to 500 participants on Friday afternoon. With about 150 fans streaming the chat, the comments section for questions was overrun with the N-word being published over and over again, under different user names, before the comments were turned off.

Videos of the incident circulated on social media, and both the Rangers and the National Hockey League put out statements condemning the act.

"We held an online video chat with fans and New York Rangers prospect, K'Andre Miller, during which a vile individual hijacked the chat to post racial slurs, which we disabled as soon as possible," the Rangers said. "We were incredibly appalled by this behavior, which has no place online, on the ice, or anywhere, and we are investigating the matter."

A source told ESPN that the incident was forwarded to the FBI.

Pretty fucking disgusting, but then again the Rangers shouldn't have used Zoom considering how unsecure it is.
