Billie Jean King | Russia | Sochi Olympics | Stephen Colbert

Stephen Colbert Grills Billie Jean King on Russia, Gay Propaganda, and the Olympics: VIDEO


Out lesbian tennis legend Billie Jean King returned to The Colbert Report to talk about her trip to the Sochi Games as an official member of the U.S. delegation.

King said she isn't planning a protest "but if the media asks me a question, I'm gonna answer it!"

When Colbert warns her that it could land her in jail, King responds:

"Well I'll take that chance."

They also discuss Obama's decision to stay back, whether being gay is a choice, and whether Colbert chose to be straight, and the word gay vs. homosexual.

  2. Boitano - what a wuss. Boycott the Sochi Olympics. That's the best thing you can do. Boycott every sponsor of the Sochi Olympics.

  3. Just by her presence in Sochi, Billie Jean will help shine a spotlight on Russian homophobia. As an official representative of the U.S.A. she will highlight the difference between freedom and tyranny.

  5. What an excellent move by Obama and an excellent choice in Billie Jean King. I think he deserves honorary gay-hood for this move. It's so snarky and cool. In your face Putin.
