Golden Knights mascot Chance has some friends read mean tweets

Players, staff and even owner Bill Foley get in on the funny bit @NHLdotcom

Chance the mascot has seen you dragging him on Twitter. But he is letting it roll right off his scaled back.

In a segment put out by the Vegas Golden Knights, everyone's favorite gila monster has some friends stop by and read some mean tweets, in what is an obivous homage of the popular "Jimmy Kimmel Live" bit.

Tweet from @GoldenKnights: Sooooo we've seen that some of you don't seem to like @ChanceNHL, our lovable Gila Monster mascot friend.The talking Gila Monster's reply��

Players Colin Miller and Nate Schmidt help out, leaping to the defense of Chance.

Special shoutout to the two sets of kids in the clip, who roast the mean tweeters right back. The actual Golden Knight and a guy named Phil also make cameos.

Perhaps the funniest appearance is the last, where Golden Knights owner Bill Foley reads a tweet that says "Fire whoever thought of this," and stares knowingly into the camera as Chance consoles him.
