Johnny Weir

One of them was judged too harshly.

Keep your sexuality out of the Olympics, and try to act like a normal person, not a flamer. Embarrassment to USA.

Johnny Rocks! Johnny was robbed. He got 'judged' for being himself, not for his skating.

Can't any of you gay bashers find some new lines that are cerebral and not typical drival? Oh and f*ck off while you're at it! IMMOWETH- You call yourself gay? I would say you're more braindead than gay! If you don't get that Johnny is just being Johnny and that not all gay men are alike, I feel sorry for you. Oh and for all you morons that keep telling Johnny to go back to Russia, well Johnny was born in Pennsylvania and thus can't "go back" to Russia.

If some of you only could realize how ignorant and like a rube you sound you'd die of embarrassment. What the hell century is this anyway? Evolve already! The flowers were a gift from a fan after the program. He didn't wear them to skate and his outfits were not as over the top as Lysacek's Heckle and Jeckle suit or the sparkly phallic snake costume. As for the Russian thing I think studying a culture in depth is a sign of intelligence. OK Back to your Budweiser and picking fleas off your old hound dog.

Johnny is just being himself, which is the right of every person living in free society such as ours. Some people are more masculine, others feminine, regardless of gender or orientation.

All of you homophobes need to get over it. This is not a theocracy, gays have rights, men have the right to be "flamers" if they want and women can be "butch" or whatever. It's not up to you to tell people how to act. If you don't like it turn off the TV.

Aside from that he skated beautifully and deserved a medal.

Johnny always has skated to the beat of a different drummer. He probably was treated horribly for years because of his sexuality and now just wants to rub people's noses in it.

This picture was taken while he was waiting for his scores. A fan gave him the roses and he was just playing around. He is always over the top in his costumes. That is just Johnny.

His coach is Russian and he admires the culture of Russia. What is wrong with that? Russian is not an easy language to learn but it helps him communicate better with Galina.

To the person who was upset about Johnny throwing kisses...did you not catch Pleshanko doing the same? Pleshanko would throw a jump, do a few turns then was throwing kisses right and left. Throwing kisses to the audience is a way of paying tribute to the audience. A kind of thank you.

In the short program I felt that Daisuke Takahashi should have been in first. Evan did skate the best long program overall. I do think Johnny was scored a little low in the long program. He should have at least been 5th. The reason why Patrick and Stephan received higher marks is because the individual elements of their skating programs were overall higher than Johnny's.

Johnny is a much more artistic skater rather than one who places too much emphasis on a single jump like the quad. Pleshanko can throw quads all day long but his performance lacks in the artistic qualities. It is too bad that Brian Joubert faltered because he is one skater who is able to marry the artistic side with the athletic side and create wonderful programs.

My point is: He should have withheld his adoration for Russia in a competition where he was representing the U.S. It goes without saying that it was beyond inappropriate. If you were a U.S. skater & had to tolerate another teammate advertising his love for the country you are competing against how would you feel? To even be included in Olympic competition is a huge accomplishment for the individual..a chance to win a medal for your country. Get it? It was only about him, over the top, whatever...but all the gay fans can use -antigay- as an excuse for him not winning a medal. He insulted all of the judges and was everything Russian otherwise. He was a tragically poor example of U.S. professional figure skating. All of his gay fans know that I am right but do not want to be caught agreeing with me b/c they feel the need to defend all things gay. This has little to do with his sexuality. Ask Brian Boitano & Scott Hamilton their thoughts on the subject. Thank you very much

This young man is superbly talented on ice as well as for his clothing designs. I enjoy watching him perform and will look forward to viewing his first fashion show. Talent is talent, it makes no difference what his personal life is like...seriously people, time to let that homophobic crap go!

DO YOU HAVE PETS?
WOULD YOU LIKE THEM TORTURED FOR DAYS AND THEN SKINNED AND WORN BY PEOPLE? LOOK AT IT THAT WAY. PEOPLE WHO LOVE THEIR PETS SHOULD KNOW THAT SOME ANIMALS ARE TRAPPED IN STEEL TRAPS WHERE THEY STAY IN AGONY FOR DAYS ON END AND THEN RAMMED IN A CAGE AND STARVED UNDER DISGUSTING, DEPLORABLE, HANNEOUS CONDITIONS, THEN SKINNED ALIVE.......CAN YOU IMAGINE!?

PLEASE DON'T WEAR FUR OF ANY KIND.
FAKE OR FAUX FUR IS THE WAY TO GO!

I can't think of any more fraudulently biased judging than that of Johnny Weir at the 2010 Olympics. I am actually glad the judges scored him so low BECAUSE by scoring him so ridiculously low, NOBODY can deny that the judging was unfair, corrupt, and WRONG. Even former olympic champion skater Elvis Stojko who HATES Johnny Weir said that Johnny's scores should have been MUCH higher.

Corporate sponsors such as Smuckers and Disney had better wake up and pick Johnny Weir for their shows instead of that boring butt kissing Evan Lycsacok. Nobody can deny that Johnny is far more entertaining and has far more fans than Evan Lycsacok.
