Vancouver Sun apologizes for calling Jordan Subban ‘dark guy in the middle’


The Vancouver Sun issued an apology on Wednesday morning after publishing a photo on Tuesday night that referred to Canucks defenseman Jordan Subban as the “dark guy in the middle.” The caption, which was written by a photo service, also appeared on the Province website for a brief time.

The photo showed Subban — the younger brother of Montreal Canadiens start PK Subban — celebrating with his teammates. Typically his position would have been described as something like “third from the right,” but the person who wrote the caption chose to use the color of his skin instead. Vancouver Sun editor Gillian Burnett apologized for overlooking the caption.

The Sun changed the caption and also issued an apology through their official Twitter account.
