Celebrity website TMZ has posted racy Scotty Lago pictures, causing trouble for the snowboarder, who had just won bronze Wednesday night – and was hoping for a White House invite.
Vancouver, British Columbia
"Everywhere you go, the people say, 'There go the snowboarders,' " she said. "They probably are a little jealous – we do have a lot of fun."
It appears that the celebrity tabloid website TMZ followed that lead, publishing racy Scotty Lago pictures. In an Olympics marked by an almost complete lack of controversy so far, the pictures are the first incident of note.
The pictures, posted on TMZ, show a female fan kissing the bronze medal Lago won Wednesday as it dangles around his waist.
Neither Lago nor United States Olympic or snowboarding officials have yet made comment.
