The world of social media can be unforgiving, as demonstrated after the New York Islanders suffered a tough loss to the New York Rangers during the Stadium Series event on Sunday.

Despite holding a 4-1 lead, the Islanders collapsed late in the game, allowing the Rangers to come back and win 6-5 in overtime.


Islanders defenseman Scott Mayfield faced harsh criticism on social media, particularly for a late penalty that led to the game-tying goal. While it's normal for NHL players to receive some criticism from fans, the backlash against Mayfield seemed excessive.





After the game, Mayfield's Instagram account (@scottmayfield2) was deactivated, raising concerns about his well-being. It's important to remember that athletes are human too, and online harassment can have real-life consequences.
