2 months ago

Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon, who's representing Team USA, happens to be openly gay. In the past, he has made comments denouncing Vice President Mike Pence and his political policies, which Rippon believes are homophobic. Pence apparently learned of Rippon's words and offered to meet with the Olympian one-on-one. 

Rippon stood his ground and basically said "thanks, but no thanks" to a meeting with the VP.

Many people on Twitter applauded him for taking a stand:

While others thought Rippon should have engaged Pence in a dialogue:

But most were supportive of the figure skater's decision:

Pence claims Rippon is "misinformed" about the VP's feelings towards homosexuals:

Pence will have to make a public statement if he wants to explain his homophobia, because Rippon isn't interested.
