Evan Lysacek Slams Johnny Weir

Evan Lysacek Slams Johnny Weir

Olympic Gold medalist Evan Lysacek dismisses reports Johnny Weir was overlooked for the Stars on Ice tour because he’s not “family-friendly,” saying the skater wasn’t chosen because he’s simply not good enough.

“'Stars on Ice' is really selective of who they hire and they only hire the best of the best to skate,” Lysacek told It would’ve been hard of them to justify hiring him, and I think he was really upset because he wanted the financial benefit of the tour. A lot of us in the skating world were really disappointed in the way he reacted, basically whining that he wasn’t chosen.”
