Joe Warmington is plugged in to the Rob Ford Don Cherry part of the world, so if he's reporting this there's a good chance it's legit.

Well that's a thing. Was there really any other way this would end? It wasn't even his most vile comments that led to him being let go. Just the most out of touch with the social mores.

I'm certainly not sorry to see him go after that, but man it's a little sad to see such an institution dumped so unceremoniously.

Perhaps it would have been best he'd been quietly let go over the summer like it was rumoured.

I can't wait to see the agonizingly awkward Ron McLean "apology" and explanation during next week's broadcast. That and Don's next interview which will definitely include the phrases "too sensitive" and "PC leftists."

RIP coach's corner. You sucked yet were somehow better than anything else the CBC did

Im thinking Ron and a couple execs went up to Don and were like look, just apologize and lay low for a bit... which triggered some racist rant that had everyone slowly backing out of the room.

Nah the rumour was they wanted to fire him over the summer, this is just a great excuse. He costs way too much these days. Paying some replaceable young broadcaster to read tweets live on air is far cheaper.

I'm actually surprised he was fired. I fully expected that they'd just keep him on then let him go at the end of the season. Too bad his replacement is going to be Brian Burke and not somebody who's actually worth watching and listening to.

Justin Trudeau wears black face making fun of immagrants. Re-elected.

Don Cherry is the first casualty of The New Canada.

Time to show support for #DonCherryIsRight I hope he sues them for firing him for speaking the TRUTH. Freedom of Speech in Canada is dead.Our PM JustinTrudeau can wear blackfaces and have sex with minors and hey that's okay PATHETIC. #IStandWithCherry

A Canadian icon down the drain for what?
Speaking his mind and the truth but some cant handle the truth.
Long live Don Cherry.
Sportsnet you are pathetic.

Far left hockey twitter is sooo excited to see Don Cherry ousted. They got the one person that disagreed with them on things off the air. Pure leftist unity in the entire NHL media now, hooray!
