Evan Lysacek Twitter Drama

New, 8 comments

I said that I would not cover anymore stupid Evan Lysacek/Johnny Weir back-and-forth, but I felt that I didn't want to just ignore something that is all over the place, especially something that Lysacek should never have done.  So, here we are. 

Apparently, Lysacek was tweeted by a fan the question:  Hey Evan, is Johnny Weir really a guy?  And Lysacek's official Twitter account tweeted back "verdict is still out."  Offensive, obnoxious, unnecessary, terrible. 

According to Gendertestthis, Lysacek has claimed that his account was hacked.  He has apologized to Weir, but it appears he is placing the blame elsewhere on this hacker or whatever.  Gendertestthis isn't buying it.  I have no way to know who or what sent that flippant (but offensive) tweet.  I am glad Lysacek apologized but wish it were just a clear apology.
