Jhonny Weir Not Happy With Antigay Olympics Chief

Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir is not happy with the Olympic Committee decision of choosing Peter Vidmar as the chef de mission for the 2012 U.S. Olympic team. Vidmar has publicly expressed opposition to gay marriage. and Johnny thinks this is “disgraceful” .

In an interview with The Chicago Tribune Johnny says:

“It’s wrong,” Weir said in a telephone interview. “I certainly wouldn’t want to be represented by someone who is anti gay marriage. It isn’t just about marriage, it is being allowed equal rights as Americans”.

“the fact this man who is very publicly against something that may be represented on the American team is disgraceful”

On the other side Peter Vidmar says that:
