Tell Uptown Sports: Apologize for calling same-sex marriage "misguided" and "wrong"

Uptown Sports tweeted, today, that they were "Very sad to read Sean Avery's misguided support of same-gender "marriage". Legal or not, it will always be wrong."

This message was sent to almost a thousand followers - approximately 785 - who are fans of this franchise. Uptown Sports, according to their twitter bio, represents Professional Hockey players such as Andrew Brunette, Cody McCormick, Chris Neil, Mike Fisher, and Carlo Colaiacovo. Their website states that for "over twenty-five years Uptown Sports has been a consistent source of professionalism, and honesty in the hockey business."

Using corporate social media to spread a personal agenda is not professional, nor is prejudice upholding the quality of integrity they say is 'how they do business' on the same page. Ask them to publicly apologize for this hate-filled tweet.
