This news has many fans reeling. Johnny Weir, Olympic figure skater and source of much media attention and controversy, has not been invited to participate in the upcoming Stars on Ice Tour.
This was a rumor until this morning when he confirmed it: “It’s for real. All because I am not family friendly enough. I understand I am a little outrageous but I wish I could perform for the fans. Maybe right now, just artistically and creatively, I’d love to have my own show, with musical acts, like maybe getting Lady Gaga! I don’t like to think there are any boundaries. Anytime you get men in glitter it’s flamboyant!”
Some fans are looking on the bright side and thinking this will only increase his appeal by garnering more “sympathy” fans. Other fans are simply ticked off.
