Johnny Weir Won’t Call the Canadian Sportscasters Assholes. Because He’s the Bigger Person

Without a medal to wear around his neck, is Johnny Weir going for Class Act Of The Olympics Award? Whereas his reputation at the Turino games was one of self-important snob, he’ll leave Vancouver known as the higher-road-taking, head-held-high, go-on-brush-your-shoulder-off Olympian.

Rather than engage media commentators in their own game of insults and stereotyping, Weir told reporters yesterday that, given he’s “heard worse in bathrooms” about himself, he’s going to leave the issue alone.

Just another reason Weir is a role model, not some shameful figure skating fag.
