WATERFORD, Mich. – The controversy and outrage directed at a post online that threatened a 9-year-old hockey player continues.
An adult said the grade school hockey player should hang himself after a bad game, that he’d provide the rope and would help tie the knot.
Families said Puck54 users have stalked and harassed their children too.
Parents said the anonymous blog is a danger and that hockey parents can post anything they want about families and the child players.
“I was disgusted and angry,” said one parent.
The 9-year-old goalie was target by name after a game at Waterford’s Lakeland Arenas in the Lakeland Hockey Association.
The Oakland County Sheriff’s Officer were asked to investigate, but the parents of the boy did not make a report.
The child’s coach told the detective that too much was being made of the post, but a terrified hockey parent reached out to Local 4 and said their family has been harassed and stalked by a Puck54 user. They said there were deeply personal, detailed and anonymous attacks that targeted their 12-year-old child.
“I don’t know if it’s a parent or a coach, but this person doesn’t deserve to hold a place in my child’s life,” the parent said.
An attorney is working on a a restraining order for the family.
Another family told Local 4 that their daughter was told by a Puck54 users to get gender reassignment surgery.
As of Friday, Puck54 has since gone offline.
