Origin

On June 15th, 2011 the 7th game of the 2011 Stanley Finals between the Boston Bruins and the Vancouver Canucks was held in Vancouver’s Rogers Arena. Boston beat Vancouver 4-0, giving Boston the series win at 4-3. Shortly before the ending of the 7th game, angry Vancouver fans created riots in the streets.[1] For more background information about the riots, read KYMdb – 2011 Vancouver Stanley Cup Riot.

On June 16th, Twitter user @AndersKravis[2] tweeted the original photo of the angry rioter:

Dear Vancouver, we should all be so proud… good luck trying to hide with pics like this online. #canucksriot http://twitpic.com/5cbwwgless than a minute ago via Twitpic Favorite Retweet Reply


@AndersKravis denies being the original photographer, however.
