Should We Be Celebrating Shaun White Even Though He Sexually Harassed a Woman For Years With Weird Dick Pics?

Allegations of sexual harassment against American snowboarder Shaun White resurfaced this week just as he prepared to compete in the men’s halfpipe event at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics on Wednesday, where he made history by winning his third Olympic gold medal.

Lena Zawaideh, who was formerly a drummer in White’s rock band Bad Things, accused him of sexual harassment in a lawsuit filed in August 2016, alleging that White “repeatedly sexually harassed her and forced his authoritarian management style on her for over seven years.”

“White sent sexually explicit and graphic images to Zawaideh of engorged and erect penises, forced her to watch sexually disturbing videos, including videos sexualizing human fecal matter, and made vulgar sexual remarks to her,” the suit said.

Shaun White, Olympic snowboarder and known creepy motherfucker, has won another gold medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics. The 31-year phenom eats, sleeps and breaths gold medals. He was put on Earth to do two things: 1. Shred fresh pow. 2. send women disgusting videos of dick pics. Not even his own dick. Just random ass dicks.

Well after winning his gold medal, reporters figured it was a pretty good time to ask White about the sexual harassment lawsuit since this was the first time he’s truly been in the public eye post-allegations.

It didn’t go well.

While Brennan was unable to ask a question about the allegations, a male reporter from ABC, Matt Gutman, was able to ask about the case.

He asked whether the sexual harassment allegations against him would “tarnish” White’s legacy.

“You know honestly I’m here to talk about the Olympics not, you know, gossip, but I don’t think so,” White said. “I am who I am, and I’m proud of who I am and my friends, you know, love me and vouch for me and I think that stands on its own.”

Not only did Shaun White not allow any women in the room ask him a question but he casually called all of the allegations ‘gossip’. I mean like, you settled in court, my dude. It’s a little more than ‘gossip’. Seems like it happened, guy.

“I am who I am and I’m proud of who I am”. That’s the quote of a man did something disgusting, got away with it and has no remorse. It is very hard to root for someone who is unapologetic about his, hopefully former, behavior.

Should we be celebrating Shaun White’s Olympic success even though he’s creepy as fuck?

 

Yes.

 

It is possible to both praise Shaun White for all of his hard work and dedication to snowboarding. He is the best at what he does. There is no denying his success and he deserves the accolades he has won.

At the same time, it is also possible to have a reasonable discussion about how you’re supposed to treat women and point out that you’re an asshole if you refuse to acknowledge that you were gross, inappropriate and just creepy as fuck.

Both things can happen at the same time. Go America! Also, don’t send chicks sexual videos about poop.

 

 

 

 

Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think we should probably press Shaun White more for being a creepy motherfucker. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
