The controversial Don Cherry stole the show once again this weekend for controversial reasons. 

While his comments usually have to do with how the game is played these days, this time it had to do with his displeasure regarding immigrants and Remembrance Day. 

In case you missed it, Cherry sounded off during his "Coaches Corner" segment and it immediately had people calling for him to be fired. 

"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."

Following the comments, both Sportsnet and Ron MacLean have issued separate apologies. 

"I want to sincerely apologize to our viewers and Canadians," MacLean posted on Twitter. "During last night's broadcast, Don made comments that were hurtful and prejudiced and I wish I had handled myself differently. It was a divisive moment and I am truly upset with myself for allowing it."

"I have worked with Don for 30 years, and we both love hockey. But last night, I know we failed you. I see hockey as part of what unites us. I have the honour of travelling across our country to celebrate Canada's game, and our diversity is one of our country's greatest strengths."

Don Cherry though, won't apologize.

Cherry spoke to Joe Warmington of the Toronto Sun and was pretty straight forward. 

“I have had my say,” he told Warmington. “It seems to have upset people.Like I said, Joe, you can put in that I said my piece and I will leave it there.”
