“Very Serious” Threats Keep Johnny Weir in Olympic Village

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates



U.S. figure skater Johnny Weir is staying at the Olympic village in Vancouver after receiving what he termed “very serious threats” from anti-fur activists.

Animal-rights activists condemned Weir last month after he decided to add white fox fur to the shoulder of his costume for the free skate at the United States Figure Skating Championships. He has previously talked about not enjoying his experience at the Olympic village in Turin four years ago.

Weir is sharing a suite with ice dancer Tanith Belbin.
