Over 5,000 have now signed the petition to remove Shani Davis from the Olympic team for unsportsmanlike conduct.
In a recent interview, Shani Davis did not apologize and instead appears to still be bitter over losing a coin toss to carry the U.S. flag at the opening ceremony.
If you have not yet signed the petition, you can do so here.
Here are just some of the many comments petition signers left who made their voices heard.
Shani Davis is playing the race card, entitlement does not count during the Olympics. Throw him off the team, he is not a team player and his antics are unsportsmanlike conduct!
We must unite and stand together
You show dishonor to a fair coin toss and because you didn’t win you totally Disrespect the opening of the games .Shame on you
Because this racist crap is bullsh%$
Olympic athletes have a reasponsiblity to the children who look up to them.
As a former US soldier and currently a Firefighter, I am absolutely disgusted to hear that anyone fortunate enough to get to represent the US in the olympics would behave in such a way. Unacceptable!
