2010 Winter Olympics: Skater Johnny Weir under attack by French broadcasters

johnny-weir-olympics2.jpgJohnny Weir may have finished sixth in the men's figure skating finals, but the 25-year-old skater is still a hot topic at the 2010 Olympic Games.

The Associated Press reports that two broadcasters are under fire for derogatory comments made about the former world champion.

One commentator from French-language broadcaster RDS said Weir hurts figure skating's image, while another said the skater should be made to take a gender test. The Quebec Gay and Lesbian Council has demanded a public apology from RDS, calling the remarks "outrageous" and "homophobic."
