LA Kings Tweet out sexual assault joke, issue apology

Kevin Ryder of the Kevin and Bean Morning Zoo show on LA’s KROQ took over the Los Angeles Kings Twitter Account during their game against the San Jose Sharks last night.  It turned out to be a really bad decision on the Kings part as Ryder made an off-color joke about sexual assault to describe a penalty.  The Kings quickly issued an apology and I think they will be more careful the next time they choose someone to tweet from their handle.
