Ryan Lochte Takes To Social Media During #LochteGate Scandal — To Make A Silly Birthday Video For A Fellow Olympian!
What in the WORLD is he thinking?!
If for some reason you're unaware of #LochteGate, US Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte has come under A TON of heat after claiming he was robbed at gunpoint in Rio — and now we know his story isn't EXACTLY true!
After confirming the tale to Matt Lauer on Wednesday night, Lochte's case took a huge turn when security footage dropped of the "robbery" after Lochte's teammates reportedly threw him under the bus and confirmed they embellished the tale.
While Ryan has his own theory about the security footage AND we learned there's a chance that those teammates DID NOT say the robbery was a lie, the gold medalist — safely in the U.S. — is busy having some fun on social media!
On Thursday, the buff athlete posted a now deleted video in which he wishes fellow USA teammate Elizabeth Beisel a happy birthday!
Though the video is deleted, Bradd Jaffy, a senior news editor and writer for NBC Nightly News, took to Twitter to share the news as well as a screenshot of the video (below):
