That’s one way to address it!
As you’re probably WELL aware, U.S. Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte got into a bit of trouble this summer when he lied to Rio police about being robbed, and on Wednesday night the athlete’s punishment finally came out!

While we’re sure everyone has different opinions on Ryan being suspended for 10 months by the U.S. Olympic Committee — four more months than Michael Phelps got for his two DUIs — we’re really only interested in the swimmer’s thoughts!
Luckily, one of those pesky members of the paparazzi bumped into Ryan at the airport and hounded the 32-year-old about his thoughts on the committee’s decision. Unfortunately, R.L. didn’t have a lot to say as he simply responded to any and all questions relating to the suspension with:
Mr. Lochte continued to stay mum as he said “I’ve got no comment” even after the annoying question master mentioned Phelps’ DUIs being dangerous, and the theory that Ryan is a “sacrificial lamb” for the U.S. to save face internationally. Talk about REALLY reaching for a comment!
The one thing that the Olympian did respond to was admitting he was nervous about his upcoming stint on Dancing With The Stars and even dished that dancing was “by far” more nerve-racking than swimming! When asked why, the controversial celeb simply said, “because I can’t dance.” Well that doesn’t bode well for DWTS! LOLz!
What do you think about Ryan staying silent regarding his suspension?!
