If you know any athletes who've worked their whole lives to compete in these Olympics, PLEASE get this message to them. STOP TWEETING. Yesterday, ANOTHER athlete was kicked out of the Olympics for an offensive tweet. That's the third Olympic tweeting controversy in less than a week. On Sunday, Switzerland's men's soccer team lost two-to-one to South Korea. Afterward, one Swiss player, 23-year-old Michel Morganella, tweeted that the South Koreans should, quote, "all burn" and, quote, "they're a bunch of [ret*rds]."
The Swiss Olympic Committee sent him home yesterday. He's since deleted his Twitter account and has apologized. Last week, a Greek triple jumper was kicked out of the Olympics for a racist tweet against Greece's African immigrants.
Earlier this week, Lolo Jones, an American hurdler, tweeted that Americans should be good at, quote, "da gun shooting competition." She will not be kicked off the team.
