Evan Lysacek Says He Lashed Out at Johnny Weir Because Weir Questioned His Sexuality

Evan Lysacek tells Us magazine that he "never should have answered" the recent question from MetroMix magazine on why Johnny Weir wasn't chosen for the "Stars on Ice" tour.

Lysacek If you remember, Lysacek said, "'Stars on Ice' is really selective of who they hire and they only hire the best of the best to skate. It would’ve been hard of them to justify hiring him, and I think he was really upset because he wanted the financial benefit of the tour. A lot of us in the skating world were really disappointed in the way he reacted, basically whining that he wasn’t chosen."

Lysacek tells Us: "[Johnny Weir] is an accomplished and talented skater...Since the Olympics, I've dealt with Johnny's questioning my integrity and sexuality, and I've never spoken out on my own behalf no matter how hurtful those things may have been. I should have known better...Best wishes and congratulations to Johnny as he opens the new season of Ice Theatre of New York. I wish him well in all of his future endeavors."


Evan Lysacek Slams 'Whiner' Johnny Weir: 'They Only Hire the Best' for 'Stars on Ice'

You may remember that in early March Johnny Weir was making headlines after he was rejected from the "Stars on Ice" tour for not being "family friendly" enough (read: too gay). The snub inspired action from GLAAD and a press conference in which Weir defended his individuality.

Lysacek In a new interview, Evan Lysacek slams Weir for "whining" saying he wasn't chosen because he's just not good enough:

"'Stars on Ice' is really selective of who they hire and they only hire the best of the best to skate. It would’ve been hard of them to justify hiring him, and I think he was really upset because he wanted the financial benefit of the tour. A lot of us in the skating world were really disappointed in the way he reacted, basically whining that he wasn’t chosen."

Writes Outsports: "No Evan, Johnny wasn’t whining. He was reacting to perceived homophobia. But I guess you wouldn’t know anything about that, since you’re straight as an arrow. At least Evan left this little gem for us in the interview…  "'Last question: Are you seeing anyone? I’m single. The reason, well…(laughs)…I’m limited to who I can see. I’m dating in L.A., but I just haven’t found the right girl.'"
