Temple Hockey Player Not A Big Fan Of The Jews According To Tweet


It seems that Temple hockey player Nick Van Allen is not the biggest fan of the Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi. Tuesday morning, before Temple hockey had an intramural matchup with AEPi, Van Allen tweeted the following.


Poor hashtag choice there, Nick. Since Temple ice hockey isn’t associated with the NCAA and plays in the ACHA, this is probably why Van Allen is allowed to compete in intramural hockey against AEPi. Probably won’t be playing tonight, though. I also looked up Temple’s record this past season — they went a smooth 5-22-0-3 and allowed nearly 100 more goals than they scored. AEPi has a fighting chance to win this one.

Van Allen deleted the tweet and has since apologized. Not a great look for ol’ Nick.

    Change the article title. He never said he doesn’t like Jews. Just the Jewish fraternity. No one likes the Jewish frat.

        Exactly, it’s one of those insensitive jokes. He crossed a cultural gray area that borders closer to hate speech than it does to acceptable joke. It’s another angle of prejudice; but we often overlook it. Nazi jokes targeting Jews are equivalent to slavery jokes targeting blacks.

      I agree, pretty sure hash-tagging heil carries its own implications. 5-22? Definitely a herb

      Who cares? There are only 10 MM Jewish left anyways. Gotta make a fraternity for inclusion, even if a social faux pas. #FeelTheBern Whatever that means.

        There are 10 MM Jewish left. They want to be accepted. So they include themselves with AEPi instead of normally talking to people.

        I got a 760 on my Math SATs. Don’t worry about not getting it.

    Shitty record or not, college club hockey is the definition of living the dream.

    This is the second day in a row TFM has posted an article about someone being called names.

      Tattle? You don’t think that this kid posting this on of the largest social media platforms kind of put it out there for the masses in the first place? I wouldn’t dog TFM for this, kid had it coming.

    I just assume anyone with a Dutch last name is racist and/or antisemitic

    An intramural team is not playing in the ACHA. Fraternities don’t play hockey in the ACHA.
