Apology uses condemnation of ‘homophobic’ story
an info website keeps apologised after posting some authorities reported outed gay Olympic sports athletes through hook-up app Grindr.
The continuous Beast post learn journalist Nico Hines make an attempt to determine if an “Average Joe” could get in on the “bacchanalia” for the Olympic town, which tabloid reviews posses suggested is actually a “sex, sex, sex”, the guy composed.
Though the reporter create there was clearly “no prizes for guessing” Grindr resulted in more meetings, and tracking specifics of athlete users – along with the region they were stage – resulted in extensive condemnation.
Hines, an old time reporter, claims this individual “didn’t lie to any person or claim getting some one I found myselfn’t” – though undermines that discussion by confessing he can be directly and married. The guy creates about certain “dozens of qualified bachelors” listed.
Top the chorus of disapproval ended up being skier Gus Kenworthy, an Olympic medallist that is openly gay.
Thus @NicoHines basically just outed a lot of players as part of his quest to write a shitty @thedailybeast write-up just where the guy admitted to entrapment
