Figure Skater Johnny Weir: Not "Family Friendly"?

According to GLAAD, the Stars on Ice Tour refuses to extend an offer to Johnny Weir -- a 3-time US Champion and 2-time Olympian -- because he is not "family friendly." GLAAD cites an anonymous source for the information.

Snarky comment: Imagine facing anti-gay discrimination in a sport that is likely dominated by gay men and that has legions of gay fans.

Give me a break. Johnny Weir was one of the most entertaining athletes of the recent Olympic Games!

I guess the solgan for Stars on Ice should be "No Characters Welcome!" - safe to say their loss.
