Chayka’s tweet praised the viewership of women’s basketball, prompting Ryan to challenge her to name seven players. This seemingly harmless exchange quickly escalated when Ryan expressed disregard for women’s sports, indicating he preferred to ignore their existence.

Following his initial comments, Ryan engaged in heated exchanges with Twitter users, including journalists like Chris Johnston, who criticized his dismissive attitude towards women’s sports.

Ryan’s responses were met with widespread backlash on social media, with many condemning his behavior and insensitivity towards women’s sports. The former Ottawa Senators player faced intense scrutiny for his remarks, leading to a public relations crisis.
