Christopher Moorhouse Who Tossed Banana at Black NHL Player Wayne Simmonds Hit with $200 Fine

Christopher Moorhouse, the man who tossed a banana at black  Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds during a preseason game in Ontario, pleaded guilty Monday and was fined $200, the NY Daily News reports.

Christopher Moorhouse claims his actions weren’t racially motivated, but because he simply wanted to keep Simmonds from scoring against his team, the Red Wings. ¬†Really? So, he happened to have a banana on hand to throw at the black player? Sorry, that doesn’t pass the smell test.

Of course, since this was a pre-season game, it was virtually worthless and there was no need for the drama from Christopher Moorhouse. The Red Wings won the game 4-3. Christopher Moorhouse was charged with engaging in a prohibited activity, too bad he wasn’t hit with a hate crime.
