Cyberbullying & Online Harassment?

Monika Caryk, the wife of San Jose Sharks’ Mike Hoffman, and Melinda Karlsson, the wife of Pittsburgh Penguins’ defenceman Erik Karlsson, have been involved in a long-standing feud concerning the stillborn child of the Karlssons.

In November 2017, the Karlssons announced on social media that they were expecting their first child, a son named Axel Michael.

Unfortunately, he was stillborn on March 19, 2018.

Following their tragic loss, Erik Karlsson shared a heart-wrenching Instagram post featuring Axel’s tiny footprints.

Moreover, he received an outpouring of support and sympathy from thousands of comments.

However, one comment stood out, alleging that Melinda used painkiller medication daily during her pregnancy.

Melinda claims Monika Caryk is responsible for an extensive and aggressive harassment campaign against the Karlssons.

Additionally, she was accused of even making threatening remarks about Erik Karlsson’s career and well-being.

According to sources, Monika allegedly posted thousands of negative comments and statements through burner accounts.

On the other hand, Mike Hoffman firmly denies any involvement in the accusations.

Both Hoffman and Caryk have expressed their willingness to cooperate fully in finding the truth and identifying the true culprits behind the incidents.

In an interview, Mike Hoffman stated, “We have nothing to hide. We’re willing to cooperate in any way to solve this and figure it out and prove that it wasn’t us.”
