Patrick Kane was the target of "she said no" chants from Philadelphia fans when the Chicago Blackhawks played the Flyers on Wednesday night.

Kane is the subject of a continuing sexual assault investigation after the Blackhawks winger was accused of rape in August, The Chicago Sun-Times reported.

He allegedly met a woman at a club before they went back to his home in a suburb of Buffalo, N.Y. His accuser claims she was assaulted there.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.

In a clear reference to the accusation, Philadelphia fans chanted as follows:

They did it again later in the game:

This isn't the first time that Kane has faced such chants. Islanders fans targeted him with the very same words at a game last week, Yahoo! Puck Daddy reported.

Writer Greg Wyshynski argued against uttering the phrase at games, saying that it "trivializes" the issue and "belittles what any survivor of sexual assault goes through, in the sense that there's no meaning behind what's being chanted."

He likened the phrase to saying, "'Sidney Crosby sucks' with more provocative verbiage."

But Kane also isn't the only athlete accused of sexual assault who's been heckled with such a phrase.

Earlier this year, Oregon Ducks players taunted former Florida State University (FSU) quarterback Jameis Winston with a "no means no" chant after beating his team in the Rose Bowl.

Players chanted it after former FSU student Jenn Sterger had written a joke with the phrase "no means no" for a comic who was roasting the teams before their Rose Bowl matchup, The Palm Beach Post reported.

In a podcast interview, Sterger said she was proud to have written the joke, saying, "I wrote a really solid ... sort of rape joke, but it's more about a PSA."

Sterger had previously claimed to have received unwanted sexual attention from NFL quarterback Brett Favre, who allegedly sent her pictures of his penis, Deadspin reported.
