While the 2016 Summer Olympic games have already had their fair share of controversy in the first week, none of the scandals have really had potentially deadly repercussions… until now, that is.

Oh yeah… and the journalist, Nico Hines, just so happens to be straight!

What's worse is that Editor-in-Chief John Avlon actually addressed readers' concerns by removing the names of countries after the fact… but decided to keep the majority of the post intact.

Luckily, out celebs like Gus Kenworthy, Tyler Oakley, and other individuals with common sense condemned the homophobic piece, saying:

A man playing Pokémon Go was shot and killed at a popular tourist destination in San Francisco.

According to the LA Times, Calvin Riley was playing the popular mobile game at Aquatic Park in Fisherman's Wharf on where he was gunned down at 10 p.m. on Saturday night.

Sgt. Robert Jansing said there didn't appear to be "any outstanding motive right now," as the assailant didn't attempt to rob the 20-year-old and didn't take any of his belongings.

While playing the game at the popular waterfront destination, the student athlete reportedly went a few steps ahead of his friend and turned around a corner, when the friend heard gunshots.

Though no witness are believed to have seen the gunman, police are collecting surveillance footage from around the area in hopes of revealing the shooter's identity.

Riley was a student at San Joaquin Delta College, where he was studying kinesiology and playing on the college baseball team.

The victim's family learned early Sunday morning that Riley had died.

Our hearts go out to Riley's family at this devastating time, and we hope the assailant is found and brought to justice.
