While some expected it, it's still some very shocking news. 

Rogers Sportsnet has fired Don Cherry and he will no longer be appearing on television. 

This of course stems from the controversial statements Cherry made over the weekend regarding "you people". 

"You people you come here you love our way of life, you love our milk and honey, at least you can pay a couple bucks for a poppy or something like that," Cherry said during the controversial segment. "These guys paid for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada, these guys paid the biggest price."

Cherry has said many controversial things over his career however these were the comments that finally put him out of a job. 

More to come once the official announcement has been made.
