James Reimer has recently caused a lot of controversy regarding his refusal to wear a pride jersey. He stated that he refused to wear it due to religious reasons.

Reimer won't back down on his beliefs

Fans have been upset by his continuous habits of doubling down on his decision, his most recent statement threw in former Leafs player Nazem Kadri

"In Toronto, Nazem Kadri as a teammate, loved him to death. I don't know exactly the extent of his faith, his Muslim faith. But he's a Muslim. I think you could talk to him and ask him if I treated him any different. I love him. I competed with him on the ice, we joked around, we did life together. And yet, people would understand if I wouldn't be able to wear a Muslim jersey in warmups, promoting the Muslim faith, being a Christian and a follower in Christ. He himself would fully understand that."

Fans are upset that Reimer has thrown Kadri into the argument, many are claiming that Kadri already faced enough harassment due to his faith, and that Reimer is trying to shift the anger towards the former Leafs player

Reimer has already lost enough fans due to his refusal to apologize. What lengths will he go to before he can issue a simple apology?
