“Dancing with the Stars'” Evan Lysacek calls Johnny Weir a “whiner”
By Greg Hernandez
Oh no he did not!
Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek had managed to take the high road during the Olympic Games when silver medalist Evgeni Plushenko said he didn’t deserve first place.
But when it comes to Johnny Weir, Evan takes the gloves off in a Q&A with Mextromix:
Q. Fellow American Olympic skater Johnny Weir has said he feels snubbed by “Stars on Ice” because his sexual orientation wasn’t “family-friendly enough.” Thoughts?
A. “Stars on Ice” is really selective of who they hire and they only hire the best of the best to skate. 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.
