A couple of New York Islanders fans have gone viral, and not the good kind of viral. Take a look at the over-the-top reaction from these fans.

Here at Eyes on Isles, we cover all things New York Islanders. From the team on the ice winning their sixth in a row, to what’s trending on social media. Unfortunately, a couple of Islander fans are trending for the wrong reasons.

A Brooklyn man, Dominick Lobifaro, was confronted this week on Long Island by a man and his kids playing hockey in the street. In the video, you can see the father and one of the kids donning New York Islanders gear.

Lobifaro, is a hunter who was about to go out on Long Island to go hunt for deer but he was harassed by a man and his foul-mouthed kid. Take a look at the video for yourself:

The man in the yellow shirt storms up to Lobifaro to ask him why he wants to kill deer. Calmly, Lobifaro explains that he eats deer and he is simply going hunting to use the deer for food.

Now, if this was a family of vegans or vegetarians, I would have less of an issue with the video. They would be standing up for something that they believe in, animal rights. That’s not the case, as Lobifaro asks if they buy meat from the store.

The father and son duo responds “yeah”, almost confused as to why this man cares about their shopping habits. Not realizing that Lobifaro is just taking out the middle man of the supermarket.

I think I can speak for Islander fans when I say we don’t claim them. My goodness, what a wild situation.

Not only did they go up to this guy, who was doing something “100 percent legally” according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation the man let his young kid curse at this guy.

How these people are so oblivious to the process of how meat gets from the wild to their kitchen table is beyond me. Not a good look for these two Isles fans, not a good look at all.
