Olympic Figure Skater Adam Rippon RIPS INTO his Haters
Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon was the first openly gay athlete to join the USA Olympic team, and that, along with his amazing ice skating abilities, has made him one of the most-talked about athletes at this year's Winter Olympics. Unfortunately, with all that talk comes some hate from online trolls, but Adam has a message for them:
To all those who tweet at me saying that they “hope I fail”, I have failed many times many times in my life. But more importantly, I’ve learned from every setback, proudly own up to my mistakes, grown from disappointments, and now I’m a glamazon bitch ready for the runway.

This isn't the first time Adam has sent a message out to his haters. In fact, he has had a very good sense of humor throughout all the trolling he's received...
The REAL one for I did for TV says “my mom” but, like, I needed this one for myself because it was the first thing that actually popped in my head and I thought I was so funny. pic.twitter.com/aC5X7wQ7bY

Not only is his clapback game on point, it turns out Adam is also one of the funniest celebs on Twitter...
I was recently asked in an interview what its like to be a gay athlete in sports. I said that it’s exactly like being a straight athlete. Lots of hard work but usually done with better eye brows.

I just tried to use a meditation app and got stressed out

I’ve been bleaching my teeth for the past few days and now the wind that I create from just talking makes them hurt. Like, I think this is a sign that I’m officially ready for my Olympic debut.

I described myself as “a little trashy and a little fun” to the Associated Press. I bet my mom is proud. https://t.co/v1ws5aldOC
