Taunting the visiting team is part of the game unless you are these idiots.

If you are lucky enough to sit front row at a Blackhawks game, that's awesome. If you abuse your privilege by launching racist chants at a player, you can go to hell.

First off I won't call these four individuals "Chicago Blackhawks" fans because they don't deserve to have that label. They are "hockey fans". The Chicago Blackhawks have a great, proud, amazing fan base...these four just don't belong.

Here is the statement issued by the Chicago Blackhawks about the situation:

“We were made aware of an incident at tonight’s game involving a small group of attendees who made harmful comments directed at Washington Capitals player Devante Smith-Pelly. The fans were immediately removed and we apologize to Smith-Pelly and the Washington Capitals organization. We are committed to providing an inclusive environment for everyone who attends our games and these actions will never be tolerated.”

Enjoy being "famous" racists, too...Should really help with the whole employment thing.
