We're calling bull shiz on this!!

There's been numerous reports - even from the Olympic skater himself - that Johnny Weir was not invited to be part of Stars On Ice because they deemed him 'not family friendly.'

Of course, in an attempt to cover their asses, reps from the tour have released this statement:

“Please be assured that the ‘gender identity and sexual’ orientation of cast members has never been a consideration in the selection of tour performers. Stars on Ice recognizes Johnny Weir is a talented athlete and we appreciate the contributions he has made to the international figure skating community throughout his career. While Stars on Ice wishes it could accommodate many more talented skaters as part of our cast, the fact is we cannot sign every skater."

Pssh. Nice try.

There's no reason Johnny Weir shouldn't have been part of that line-up!! NONE.

    I can guarantee that those who have placed 6th in the Olympics games would definitely be performing in Conservative Yahoos on Ice.

    But Johnny will hopefully have his own show, which will prove to be a huge counterculture hit, selling so many more tickets than AssRods on Ice that that organization goes bust and then POOF!



  2. 2

    Hey, maybe he can skate in drag, as 'Joe-Annie' Rochette ? I'd pay to see that !! Oui / Non ?!?



  3. 3

    Your the only one that seems to care about this. But there are reasons not to include him. He did not win and he is to flamboyant. He is a bit of a turn off, I can not stand to watch him.



  4. 4

    Maybe someone in a power position at Stars On Ice cares about animals, is horrified at the cruelty of the fur industry, and finds Weir's obnoxious stance on wearing fur offensive. I know I do.



  5. 5

    What do you know Perez, he seems pretty high maintenance, maybe there are legitimate reasons they didn't want to work with him, maybe he asks for too much money, maybe he wasn't interested in the size of the part they would give him….POINT is you don't know…what we do know is that Johnny Weir if he had joined the tour would NOT have been the first openly gay man on stars on ice.



  6. 6

    Perez, I love Johnny. I would pay to watch him paint his toenails, but I don't think in this case it is about homosexuality. 90% of the people skating in that show are effeminate and possibly gay. Johnny can't quit snarking and being bitchy. It's what we all love about him but it doesn't make him the best ambassador for a family friendly show.

    What, do you think Evan isn't gay??? Gay, gay, totally gay.

    That said I'd rather go see Johnny Weir than Evan. He's flashy and I like it.



  7. 7

    What a load of garbage. Complete bull from a bunch of bigots!



  8. 8

    theres no reason that he should be on this either. I love you Perez, but the whole world does not have an Anti-Gay agenda!



  9. 9

    If they excluded him because he was effeminate and gay… well, they wouldn't have any male skaters to feature.

    Stop licking his ass Perez, it won't get you laid.



  10. 10

    Perez, drop it. He's not a "RESPECTED" champion like the other skaters who have behaved with dignity and class. He has dissed his fellow skaters in the past and ignored repeated requests by anti-fur groups to stop wearing fur. He is solely responsible for ostracizing himself from the skating community. His fur wearing is offensive. He can go perform at a drag club and his people can buy tickets to see him. I would never pay to see an ass wipe fur wearing hag like him.



  11. 11

    America accepts mormons who marry more than one person but it can't accept a gay skater. Yeah, black president,2010,land of the free, but people are still racist and there are bigots. Oh by the way this is a gay man who runs this website so if you can't stand gay people WHY ARE YOU HERE LEAVING A COMMENT. Awsome evening to you all.



  12. 12

    This is total bullshit !! Johnny is super talented….insult to injury much? he was just robbed at the Olympics, now this? When is American society going to GROW THE FUCK UP …who gives a shit who you're sleeping with..the man is a talented ARTIST and ATHLETE…THATS what matters you ignorant assholes!

    Pretending every choice is based on prejudice and not preference based on experience is the reason the Blacks, Hispanics and practitioners of homosexual relations will never be taken seriously by society at large.

    Stop playing the Gay Card!!!!!



  15. 15

    stfu perez ! big deal he doesn't get to do stars on ice boo fukin hoo the guy was in the fukin Olympics for chirst sakes how much bigger does it get for him?? come on



  16. 16

    Liars!!



  17. 17

    I really don't think this has anything to do with sexual orientation. Like some other posters pointed out, there are many other skaters that have questionable sexual orientation that have always been included in Stars on Ice. Seems like they may have been telling the truth.



  18. 18

    They can decide who and who not to include in their show, just like you decided who and who not to include on that thing you called a tour last year. I'm sure you'd be pissed off if told by other people how to run your show, so fuck off and just drop it, you're getting even more annoying. This guy didn't even medal at the Olympics, he's not the same caliber skater as others in Stars On Ice. You've got your pink panties in a knot playing the gay card here dumbass.



  19. 19

    Re: chiro
    BRILLIANT



  20. 20

    NOOOOOOOOOO! Don't they know that every time Johnny's magic skates touch the ice that glittery rainbows shoot outta the buttholes of every unicorn in Fairyland?



  21. 21

    Please repost the petition so they continue to be slammed with objections.



  22. 22

    Oh, my GOD! Someone call the FBI! A gay skating icon won't be able to perform in Stars on Ice and someone needs to go down for the injustice of it all. Oh, the humanity. I don't know how I'll sleep tonight.

    *Yawn*



  23. 23

    Assholes..Johnny would be the best thing about that dumb show if he did do it and attract a bigger crowd..their loss.



  24. 24

    Re: tom951 – me neither…



  25. 25

    I don't care about his love life whatsoever. I do care about the animals that were forced to suffer for his coats and costumes. If it wasn't causing other living beings tremendous pain, I wouldn't care. It does though…and not only does he not care, his comments on the subject are disgusting. I love dead animals? Well, I love Weir not being included in Stars on Ice.



  26. 26

    i would never pay or even go to watch him for free!!



  27. 27

    Johnny Be Gay.



  28. 28

    Re: chiro – yeah whats next ,driving while gay?



  29. 29

    lol Mario deleted my comment.

    I am a gay man and I support this decision. This guy is too flamboyant and it's not good for a family friendly business. Sorry but that's life. If you want to go and shake your ass in a feminine way don't expect mass about of people to pay to see it.

    I used to cringe when Rudy Galindo would go on the ice with gay flags, aids ribbon costumes and leather armbands, it was so embarrassing to me as a gay man.
    Like being gay is all about sex and diseases and you need to shove it in the faces of 10 year old kids.
    Little kids want to see tricks on the ice, not a drag show.

    And no I'm not self hating, I just dont think that gay men should act like Tinkerbell and expect people to love it.



  30. 30

    THIS IS BULLSHIT! WHEN WILL THINGS CHANGE? SICKNEEN! I LOVE MY JOHNNY WEIR AND THE WAY HE HAS BEEN TREATED IS SO FUCKING PATHETIC! I TWEETED HIM A FEW WEEKS AGO, LETTING HIM KNOW HOW I THINK IT IS BEAUTIFUL THAT THRU ALL THIS CRAP HOMOPHOBE TALK HE REMAINS GRACEFUL AND DOESN'T LET (OR SO IT SEEMS) THINGS GET TO HIM. I HOPE SECRETLY HIS HEART ISN'T BREAKING. HE'S A GOOD GUY (MINUS THE FUR) ;P *NOW*, IF YOU WATCHED CAREFULLY-LIKE I DO (OBSESSED W/OLYMPICS!) HE SHOULD HAVE WON THE GOLD, EVAN 2ND PLACE AND I LOVE ME SOME EVAN TOO. BUT THEY WERE UNFAIR AS USUAL. SORRY FOR THE CAPS, PISSED OFF HERE!



  31. 31

    Re: Sexsai – what I just read made my stomach litrally turn. I feel so sorry for you. gay or not gay, honey you need to learn some life lessons! We're all on this planet together. I LOVE the fact that Rudy Galindo was spreading the word about AIDS and important issues than spreading ignorance!!! kids should learn things early on anyhow. Seesh now that the poor things are having sex at alarming young ages these days!



  32. 32

    Johnny Weir said he wanted to become a fashion designer after his figure skating career, not a reality star.



  33. 33

    Re: Orphan Sailor – Well then Weir and Galindo should go to Bottoms on Ice, and 300 peoples will show up.
    hooray.

    This is show business, not Oprah. People have to make money, so you need to give the people what they want.



  34. 34

    If I remember correctly, SOI wouldn't let Rudy Galindo skate for them either - he signed with Tom Collins' tour before it went out of business. SOI doesn't like the gays - they are the "family oriented" show. Such crap! I have seen Stars on Ice many times in the past, but you know what… I won't anymore. I don't need to take my family to a show that blatantly discriminates against skaters based on their sexual orientation. Abbott more worthy than Weir? I don't think so.



  35. 35

    Face it, Mario. You wouldn't be satisfied with anything less than Johnny Weir humping Adam Lambert in the middle of an ice rink with Lady GaGa belching out one of her songs in the background.



  36. 36

    I bet if he wasnt gay you wouldnt care and we would have never heard a word about this.



  37. 37

    Stop trying to turn every little issue into a matter of discrimination.

    He's not all that talented and they had a full lineup. That's it.



  38. 38

    Weir should be considered family friendly (it's bogus to dis him because of his his sexuality), EXCEPT that he is NOT animal friendly.
    .
    Not only does he think it's fine to wear fur, he bragged that the informaton given to him by animal rights advocates hadn't caused him to change a thing.
    .
    Michael Vick is pilloried (and rightfully so), but Johnny Weir, who supports brutality toward animals for fashion is…fabulous???



  39. 39

    Interesting that you would feature a photo of him wearing fur … I thought you had advoacted an end to seal slaughter… Do you think that the way they treat fur animals it is any less brutal??!… or are you okay with being a blatant hypocrite.
    In the future, spare us your posing (ie self-promoting) as an advocate of humane treatment of animals, okay? You've shown your true colors. Poor Teddy.



  40. 40

    I am a gay man and this flamer shames and repulses me! Not a good representation for straight, normal america



  41. 41

    I've been checking to see if he was going to be included in the show. What a shame he won't be there.



  42. 42

    Oh Pleeease….what a bunch of sorry ass hypocrites. They leave out the best of the best and call it accommodating the many to please the few! Wow. Family Friendly my ass! How about homophobic jerks make bad decisions that prove they are really stupid.

    Oh, this ticks me off so much, I cannot even say anything but "JERKS ALL OF THEM"
    I KNOW, not intelligent but heartfelt. A bunch of jerks.

  43. jbrn says – reply to this


    43

    While it's digusting and idiotic, doesn't surprise me. The kicker is, Johnny Weir is a showman! he's be great…..So lets have him get his OWN show so he can do it his way, and screw the conservative suits.



  44. 44

    Re: Sexsai – u said it guy. he makes it harder for other gay guys as people see his obnoxiouse attitude and lump all gay men with that. also, its a joke when other gay guys say that people who feel like we do are self hating gay men. bottom line is, he is not a very likeable guy. hes delusional to think that he would have a large enough audiance to support his own show or that gaga would do a show with him. he needs a reality check very fast.



  45. 45

    Fact is that not everyone is going to be hired. It may not be political at all. But then again it is almost always better to be the power behind the throne. Not impossible they can't hire him on as a consultant.



  46. 46

    He looks like Pee Wee Herman ,seriously,like a young Pee Wee or the son of Pee Wee.Sorry i don't remember his real name.Other then that i know nothing about this guy.Ive heard his name alot lately but still i dont have a clue who he is.But if they ever wanted to have a Pee Wee 2.0 since they remake everything these days lol This guy is his doppelganger lol



  47. 47

    When the guy's on the ice that's what you want from him so who cares who he is into off the ice, as long as they of the age of consent. It's not like he's Perez and is hot for little boys like Justin Bieber. It's not like he's simulating oral sex on the ice like Adam Limpbert does on stage. Let the guy skate and enjoy the show and just STFU. If he isn't dating your man who cares?



  48. 48

    I can think of a bunch of reasons why he wouldn't be invited to perform: he's super high maintenance, he's not a team player, he is really obnoxious, he has all the "I love fur and I don't care about animals" baggage, he gets pretty much nothing but negative press and, frankly, I find him to be a "me,me,me. its all about me" type of person. That being said, he is a great skater–too bad he is torpedoing his own career.



  49. 49

    fugly fur hag



  50. 50

    whatever the reason, its too bad. Johnny is fucking awesome



  51. 51

    I used to go to Stars on Ice religiously back in the 90's and when it came to Olympic athletes they wanted nothing more than to have them all on their lineup. You can't tell me they're not anti-Johnny. So glad I don't have season tickets anymore.



  52. 52

    They are missing a great skater!



  53. 53

    He looks like Chloe Sevigny here.



  54. 54

    Berlierve it or not Perez, not everyone thinks Johnny's gender confused skating talent is acceptable for their children. He is a very talented skater but not everyone wants to expose their children to his flamboyance. That's just a fact.



  55. 55

    Re: blueboy – Thats is the funniest comment ever! I remember when this was a gossip website and didn't have this homosexual agenda all the time. I am pro gay everything, but give it a rest.



  56. 56

    "which will prove to be a huge counterculture hit"
    Comments like this just proves homosexuality is not the norm.



  57. 57

    Who needs a thing to be part of their show



  58. 58

    Perez, i wish you understood skating a bit more before going off on a rant that they are excluding him from it for his sexuality. Im a competitive skater and my coach (flaming gay) was in stars on ice for yeeeeeaaaarrsss. I really dont think they excluded him for not being family friendly. We have all proven that we love johnny and that we can handle him. Anyways, think what you'd like but i think you need a bit more background info on this whole thing..possibly even the whole sport.



  59. 59

    Johnny Weir is pretty fucking amazing, and deserves his own show. (And look at how sexy he is here with his Louis Vuitton scarf, huge green eyes and Mona Lisa smile). Oh, and by the way: there is no such thing as "too flamboyant". Forget anyone who tries to limit another person's style, self-expression, way of life, etc.



  60. 60

    I wouldn't hire him either. He's notoriously difficult to work with. within 5 minutes he'd try and make it the Johnny Weir show. I think Stars on Ice probably knows who their core demographic is…and he doesn't appeal to them. It's not bias it's business.



  61. 61

    lol, he looks like Peewee Herman in this picture. Perhaps it's to do with his disgusting use of fur. I say let's use his skin to decorate our bodies…see if he's ok with it then. Loser.



  62. 62

    If you think Johnny Weir ROCKS THE TASSEL, join "Can this pink tassel get more fans than Smucker's Stars on Ice?" on FB. We'll show those smuckers. :D
