This is so incredibly upsetting.
Afterward, the racist Republican took to Twitter to call her "arrogant."

UPDATE 4:34 P.M. EST: Shaun White has responded to the sexual harassment lawsuit in a statement given by his attorney Kerry Garvis Wright:
"Many years ago, I exchanged texts with a friend who is now using them to craft a bogus lawsuit. There is absolutely no coincidence to the timing of her claims, and we will defend them vigorously in court."
ICYMI: the pro athlete/artist was sued by his former Bad Things bandmate Lena Zawaideh for $42,000 in back payments, as well as punitive damages for "inappropriate and sexually harassing and suggestive comments" made in the time she was a member in their band.
It was reported the star had previously told her to cut her hair and wear more revealing outfits.
Well on Tuesday, TMZ revealed the shocking and very graphic alleged details from the drummer's new court docs.
For one, the musician claims the Olympian sent her pictures of "engorged and erect penises" and also made her watch videos of a sexually disturbing nature "including videos sexualizing human fecal matter."
The flying tomato is about to get squashed…
However, that may be over now because his own drummer is currently suing him for sexual harassment!
Lena Zawaideh formed the band Bad Things with Shaun back in 2008, but has now filed a lawsuit against the two-time Olympic gold medalist for $42,000 in back payments.
However, the real uphill legal battle for Shaun is that she's also suing for punitive damages for "inappropriate and sexually harassing and suggestive comments" both in-person and over text!
Apparently, Shaun has a history of using his fame to steamroll his band mates — he even forced them to "tour" with him when he was training for the 2014 Olympics to suit his own travel needs — and altogether stopped paying Lena her $3,750 per month stipend once he felt she reached her worth!
Ugh! If these accusations are true, that's a half-pipe too far for us!

Jimmy Fallon has been known to break bands with TV debuts for a long time now, even before he took over the Tonight Show — but we're STILL surprised to see Shaun White's band Bad Things featured so early on the new show!
We just figured he'd still be in bring-all-the-power mode in his first month!
Still, we're super glad we're getting a taste of Shaun's band and what they're all about… and to see them in action!
If you're interested, and we totally know you are, ch-ch-check him out shredding something other than a half pipe AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Shaun White, super talented pro snowboarder, wasn't always the man he is today.
In the past, he was a child! Just like pretty much every other human being ever!!
Except Benjamin Button we guess.
Anywayz, Shaun shared the cutest #FlashbackFridays pic ever (above) and wrote:
"Thumbs up for skin care! #yourdailyPSA #FlashbackFridays #nowrinklesforthisguy"
Shaun still looks great too! Because he took care of his skin!
Ohhh yeahhh, Shaun! Get that sunscreen all over! Mmmm…
Cause it's super good for you! He's right, no wrinkles for him!
Let's all put on sunscreen, all the time! Woo!

And he looks SCARY CLOSE to the late singer!!
He had the checkerboard leotard, mustache, gold chain and microphone — but did he have the voice??
We need someone to get Shaun to sing! We need to know if he nailed the FULL costume!!
Lookin' fab, Shaun!

We haven't seen this many stars in one place since the last time we went outside at night and looked up!!
Jared Leto's AMAZEBALLZ band 30 Seconds to Mars just came out with a sweet combo documentary/video for their new single City of Angels, and we really think you'll dig it!!
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!
OMG!! We can't believe how far Jordan Catalano has come since his days of breaking Angela Chase's heart! Joy!!
We love this so much!!
