    This is going to get ugly before it gets better.

    This Sochi Olympics is ruined by this horrible law and how NBC and the IOC are covering up the truth about this, including Mr. Weir.

    Any “sponsor endorsements” the winning athletes receive from these medals will be tainted as well. The money made by these athletes will be considered blood money off the backs of Russia’s LBGT community.

    Stop watching and stop buying anything Russian!!

    Ugh, it is all just disgusting.

    When you make assertions that are discredited by a primary source, you lose credibility. Just because something is online doesn’t make it true.

    Attending an event at the Russian Consulate doesn’t mean Weir worked there. Supporting a charity that has an event at the Consulate doesn’t mean Weir worked there.

    @Alex

    Weir’s bio at premierespeakers.com, the agency that reps him, said he “works with the Russian Children’s Welfare Society and Russian Consulate in New York City.” This is what Weir said about himself. While Premiere Speakers has cleansed that bio, it is still up at the Harriman Institute at the link below. If you don’t like what it says, take it up with Johnny Weir.

    Once again, for those in the back, watching or not watching NBC broadcasts (on cable or over the air) only affects ratings if you have a Nielsen box. If you want to actually do something helpful, support groups such as Amnesty Int’l and IGLHRC.

    You could also ask your local NBC affiliate to do some reporting on the issue. A “boycott” won’t actually do much.
