I’m proud of who I am today.” In addition, Shaun apologized for referring to the allegations as “gossip” during a post-game press conference. “I’m truly sorry that I chose the word ‘gossip.’ It was a poor choice of words to describe such a sensitive subject in the world today,” Shaun said. “I was so overwhelmed with just wanting to talk about how amazing today was and share my experience,” In a lawsuit from the former drummer in his band, Lena Zawaideh, she alleged that Shaun “forced her to watch sexually disturbing videos” and “made vulgar sexual remarks to her.” The lawsuit was settled last year. “Do you feel that you learned something from that?” @savannahguthrie asks @ShaunWhite about sexual harassment case “I definitely feel like I’m a much more changed person than I was when I was younger.” -White pic.twitter.com/9BiOuu4vP1 — TODAY (@TODAYshow) February 14, 2018.....»»

Gnarly. Shaun White A Douchebag, But Not For Sexual Assault

Anyone watching the Olympics last night knows first and foremost that North Korean figure skaters are only allowed to pick outfits inspired by Tron, and secondly that snowboarder Shaun White is probably the biggest douchebag in the world. He’s a late-to-the-game Gen X-er who is moved to tears by his own success and says things […] The post Gnarly. Shaun White A Douchebag, But Not For Sexual Assault appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Anyone watching the Olympics last night knows first and foremost that North Korean figure skaters are only allowed to pick outfits inspired by Tron, and secondly that snowboarder Shaun White is probably the biggest douchebag in the world. He’s a late-to-the-game Gen X-er who is moved to tears by his own success and says things like “gnarly.” If he was a surfer he would say “tubular” and if he was a skateboarder he would be Bart Simpson. I think he actually voiced all of the original Ninja Turtles. Anyway the thirty-one-year-old White – who nabbed his third gold medal yesterday in a fake sporting event – isn’t making headlines for being insufferable, and is instead making the round for, you guessed it, sexual assault allegations. Anyone in the world right now at any given time is only three degrees separated from being exposed as a rapist, and while in my wildest dreams White actually be one of the offenders and have his medals stripped away (“tots bummer brah”) it sounds like the allegations – to which he defended himself against during a press conference yesterday – are “so bogus dude.” While responding to a question from an ABC reporter about the assault allegations White faced in 2016, White offended the masses with what we in 2018 can categorize as victim shaming lite: I’m here to talk about the Olympics, not gossip and stuff. I am who I am, and I am proud of who I am. My friends, you know, love me and vouch for me and I think that stands on its own. After a fierce and vapid backlash, White took to the Today show this morning to share his apology, stating that he made a: …poor choice of words to describe such a sensitive subject. I was so overwhelmed with just wanting to talk about how amazing today was and share my experience. I’ve grown as a person over the years. It’s amazing how life works and twists and turns and lessons learned. Every experience in my life I feel like it’s taught me a lesson. I definitely feel like I am a much more changed person than I was when I was younger. I am proud of who I am today. In two separate statements White proclaimed that he’s proud of who he is, which should really be the offense that we’re focusing on. Gen freaking X. White is I guess in a band, and his bandmate Lena Zawaideh filed a lawsuit against him in 2016, claiming that he stuck his hand down his pants in front of her and pushed it forward – simulating an erection, that he made her watch porn involving poop, and that he forced her to change her appearance for the band’s performances, among other allegations. White denied everything – with his lawyer literally called the allegations “bogus” – and he and Zawaideh settled out of court. As I’ve stated on here many times, the public only has a certain amount of fucks to give, and each time a stunt ho comes forward with stunt ho allegations, he or she is only taking the spotlight away from actual victims with actual stories to tell. The breadth of the spotlight is not infinite, and right now Zawaideh is taking up more than her fair share. This recent smoke and mirrors controversy surrounding White’s use of the word “gossip” at a press conference is only one more nail in the #MeToo coffin. In the probable words of White ‘Quit icing my grill man!”   Shaun White on if he thinks the sexual harassment allegations against him will tarnish his legacy: “You know, honestly, here to talk about the Olympics, not gossip.” pic.twitter.com/45I1DjTB2u — USA TODAY Sports (@usatodaysports) February 14, 2018   In response to my question whether sexual harassment claims against him would tarnish his legacy, @shaunwhite said he wouldn’t answer the question, called the allegations against him “gossip.” @cbrennansports notes not single female reporter allowed to ask a question at presser pic.twitter.com/sZAjmkchYj — Matt Gutman (@mattgutmanABC) February 14, 2018  Photo Credit: Instagram   The post Gnarly.

The actor's name is Shaun Weiss, and he's facing some serious time out in the penalty box now because, after growing up, he's decided to shoplift a few too many times! WTF?! Related: What An Epic Titanic Reunion!! According to a report out this morning in TMZ, Shaun was at a Fry's Electronics store in El Lay earlier this month when he stole $151 in merchandise and was arrested. Two days after the arrest, he pleaded no contest to petty theft, and was sentenced to 150 days in the El Lay County Jail -- yikes!! A sentence that steep is because this isn't the first shoplifting issue he's had; Weiss reportedly was busted earlier for another petty theft, and the judge took that into account when making his decision. Not a good look!! Related: Fuller House Cast Celebrates Lori Loughlin's Birthday! According to Don Gibble, Weiss' manager, he is hopeful that the 150-day sentence will set Shaun straight: "[Shaun] hopes jail will help him, and maybe while he is in jail he will write something." Write something as in comedy -- Shaun is a comic. Let's just hope he gets the help he needs. In case you forgot, this is Shaun, as Goldberg, in the original Mighty Ducks movie (below): Come on, Goldberg! Here's to getting better and staying out of trouble!!
