To translate, via Twitter: "Happy Saint-Jean-Baptiste to all Quebecers. I embrace you and wish you a happy national day! By the way, I have nothing to do with this photo…. And you know what photo I'm talking about! - Celine xx…"

In the replies to her tweet, many Canadiens fans were quick to allow Dion back on the Habs bandwagon.

As someone who’s been covering this situation very closely for two whole days, I have some reservations. For starters, Dion, while denying the photo, still hasn’t expressly stated where her allegiance lies, something that would erase any doubt that she isn’t rooting for Montreal.

Secondly, this picture still exists.

A simple “Go Habs!” or “Go Golden Knights!” tweet would really help bring this madness to a halt.
