Johnny Weir’s critics suggest the skater’s flamboyant costumes and in-your-face attitude paint a bad image for the winter games. But Weir sat down with Access Hollywood contributor and Olympic gold medalist Dorothy Hamill to say he pays no mind to the French-Canadian sportscasters who said "we should make [Weir] pass a gender test at this point."
“Every little boy should be so lucky as to turn into me,” he told Hamill. “And that’s all I have to say about that.”
Hamill looks visibly upset when repeating the sportscaster’s comments to Weir. The Quebec Council of Gays and Lesbians filed a complaint against sportscasters Claude Mailhot and Alain Goldberg of the RDS network over the weekend for their comments.
Weir placed sixth in last week’s long form program. Had he placed fifth, he would have skated to Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” in the post-competition gala this coming Saturday. Gaga had promised Weir she would attend.
