Video: Johnny Weir reiterates that he would never, ever boycott any Olympics ever no matter what


Okay, we get it Johnny Weir.

You would not boycott any Olympic Games no matter what – not ever ever ever ever – never ever!

For someone who didn’t even try and qualify for the 2014 Games in Sochi, Weir made a huge point of speaking out against thoughts of a boycott because of Russia’s anti-gay laws.

Turns out he will be in Sochi in February but doing television commentary for NBC Sports.

Johnny appeared on Bethenny Frankel’s daytime talk show this week and did the “Would You Ever?” Q&A session backstage. One of the questions was, of course, would he ever boycott an Olympics.

“I would absolutely never boycott any Olympics,” he said before launching into all of the sacrifices his family made from money to his mom not being home much for his little brother.

“For anyone to boycott the Olympics is really boycotting these families and these athlete’s lives.”

One Remark

  1. He has a right to his views. However, a bunch of people and THEIR families overseas are suffering and dying as a result of the Russian government hatred of LGBT people.

    Also, a lot of people in this country have marched, boycotted and acted out so Mr. Weir can be openly gay in THIS country.

    He doesn’t get a free pass. Screw him.
