If you have not heard yet here is the synopsis of what happened, some links to other articles. Most importantly here is an excerpt from VOT 122 soon to be released.
- Nico Hines a “journalist” at The Daily Beast thought he would be clever and write and article about how “hook-up apps” were being used at Rio 2016. While he stated that he did not mean to focus on gay apps, his original piece was primarily about gay hook up apps and the users.
- The Daily Beast published this article where many athletes were outed, many of whom live in countries with high levels of homophobia or homosexuality is flat out illegal.
- An apology was issued, the article has been “altered”.
- The damage as been done.
Many have reacted and responded. The most impressive reaction, in my opinion, is from @AminiFonua. Check him out on Twitter.
