This is the most outrageous story to come out of the Olympics so far. U.S. figure skater Johnny Weir wore some white fur around his neckline for a performance that got him into the Games, and received such vicious threats that he feared for his life.
All these crazy fur people. Security-wise, to stay in a hotel would be very difficult. There have been threats against me. I didn't want to get hurt.
Weir is scheduled to do a short program tomorrow, and a longer program on Thursday.
