News that Olympian Lindsey Vonn suffered a back injury while competing in the World Cup in Switzerland on Saturday was greeted with glee by Fox News fans still angered by her comments about President Donald Trump earlier in the week.
In an interview aired in CNN on Thursday, Vonn said she had no interest in visiting Trump at the White House should she win a gold medal at the Olympic Winter Games in South Korea in 2018.
"I was asked my opinion and I gave it," Vonn explained on Friday. "I mean, it's not necessarily my place to be sticking my nose in politics, but as an athlete I do have a voice."
Friday morning, a host on Fox & Friends criticized Vonn, calling her "un-American," and derided the Olympic gold medalist and four-time World Cup overall champion as "just another celebrity, another Hollywood person who doesn’t agree with the president."
News that Vonn suffered a back injury on Saturday was celebrated by many Fox News fans on Twitter, with some calling it "karma" because they feel she attacked the president.
