‘Eat your heart out, Pence’: Gay Olympians who refused to meet with VP taunt him in new Instagram photo
Figure skater Adam Rippon and skier Gus Kenworthy are America’s first two openly gay men at the Winter Olympics — and they still have no use for Vice President Mike Pence.
Kenworthy on Friday posted a photo of himself and Rippon at the Olympics opening ceremony in South Korea in which he said he was “honored to be here in Korea competing for the US” and “so proud to be representing the LGBTQ community.”
At the end of the post, he also wrote, “Eat your heart out, Pence.”
Rippon has been publicly feuding with Pence over the vice president’s past statements supporting gay conversion therapy.
Pence, for his part, has said that accusations that he supported such therapy are “fake news.” He is also insisting that he’s in Korea to cheer for “all our great athletes.”
