Scotty Lago Racy Pictures have been the subject of much controversy lately. Scotty Lago is better known as the winner of the Bronze medal the Vancouver Winter Olympics 2010 Half pipe competitions. He, along with teammate Shaun White became the talk of the town and brought much pride to their country.
Everyone was in a celebratory mood… so was Scotty Lago and that’s where the story goes bad. Pictures have now surfaced where a girl can be seen kissing his medal while he holds it in front of his genitalia and biting on it in a provocative way. The picture was taken on a local street in Vancouver where many people became witness to the “celebration.” Lago can be seen wearing his team US shirt in the picture.
He issued an apology to the US ski and Snowboard Association along with the US Olympic Committee on Friday. Unacceptable and crude behavior is not allowed to Olympians because they serve as role models for their communities. In theory, if they falter, the rest will follow. Lago left the Olympics soon after the controversy broke out. Contrary to popular belief, he was neither asked to leave, nor was he asked to give up his title. Rumors will tell you that he’s lost his position in the Olympics which is not the case. In any case there were no real events left in which Lago was supposed to compete so it isn’t like his presence there mattered now.
The question is why people are judging him the way they are. Most are divided over whether his actions were right or wrong, at the end of the day however, he was simply out there having some fun with his friends and undoubtedly he made a mistake by using his medal like that, but is that enough to actually have him leave the Olympics? Or persecute him in anyway?
