The petition started yesterday to remove Shani Davis from the U.S. Olympic team has gained steam with over 1,200 signers.
The number would already be much higher but the petition was removed from the first petition host after being deemed too controversial.
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.
Perhaps Shani Davis should read these comments and issue an APOLOGY.
US team member not representing to US? Send this trash home!
Our country must stand together and all who represent it
He is a disgrace and brings shame to the U.S. What an embarasment he is and should be disqualified for misconduct.
He is supposed to represent the USA. I am an American . He does not represent Americans with his bad attitude
The spread of liberalism using Marxist tactics must stop.
this “race baiting” is getting to be just stupid, besides a coin toss is in no way unfair to anyone!!!
He’s representing our country and his actions do us no good.
He does not represent America.
Doesn’t display pride in the United States
The man is a digrace as a rep of our country. Needs a reality check.
Does not represent the values of our country. Not a team player
Olympic athletes are there to compete for and represent our country. Sportsmanship is one of the most important aspects of sports, in my opinion, and Shani Davis does not seem to understand what that means. His actions disgust me.
BECAUSE HE’S ON THE UNITED STATES OLYMPIC TEAM, NOT THE SHANI DAVIS TEAM. HE DISRESPECTED HIS ENTIRE TEAM, KICK HIM OFF THE TEAM NOW.
Poor sportsmanship should not be allowed at any level of competition. He has not set a good example for our youth and therefore should be removed from our Olympic team.
the Olympics is not the place to acting like this. It is childish and deserves punishment. To the woodshed and dump him off Team USA!
Unacceptable actions, acting like a spoiled brat. Evidently he is NOT a Team Player. Remove him
Because I’m tired of everything being boiled down to race by the biggest racists. The vast majority of these supposed blacktivists are more racist than the rest of the population! Like this particular stunt. A coin toss is pure chance, a 50/50 odds chance and he lost. It’s that simple. The fact that so many of them are so quick to point out race, to say that because we are white (or the woman that won the toss) that we have privilege, ITS THE VERY DEFINITION OF RACISM.
Black or white , he was just a crying baby , throwing a tantrum
