Johnny Weir Tells Critics to Think Not Apologize


Johnny Weir has a message for the two French-Canadian sportscasters who made headlines by suggesting the Olympics ought to force the skater to "take a gender test."

The flamboyant skater told reporters Wednesday he wants the sportscasters to "think twice before they speak in the future," but he said he isn't interested in apologies.

Weir said he found the comments "offensive" but that they didn't matter much to him. He did say he worried about what effect such comments might have on kids and other athletes.

The Quebec Gay and Lesbian Council called the remarks ''outrageous'' and ''homophobic'' and has demanded a public apology.
