PokerNews on Hot Seat for Calling Poker Bunny “Insane” and “Erratic”


02 Feb

A recent article at PokerNews that focused on Poker Bunny’s behavior after busting on Day 3 of the PCA Main Event has created a bit of a ruckus among some poker players and fans.

Many commenters on social media were offended by the PokerNews article that called Paulina “Poker Bunny” Loeliger‘s actions “erratic.” A tweet in promotion of the article ruffled even more feathers when Poker Bunny was labeled as “insane.”

It’s common knowledge in poker circles that the 24-year-old has admitted to struggles with mental health issues.

For that reason alone, describing Poker Bunny’s behavior as “insane” was perhaps a poor choice of words. But with regard to “erratic,” well, look for yourself in the clip below:

We’ve all likely made bad calls that we wished we hadn’t. There’s nowhere to hide when it happens and the impulse to conceal her embarrassment seemingly got the best of Poker Bunny and the ensuing behavior was the result.

Whether or not Poker Bunny’s actions on busting was even newsworthy was called into question by a number of players, as exemplified by the following tweet replies.
