On Lopez Tonight, Johnny Weir discussed the politics of the figure skating medal platform, saying that his often-controversial personality may have been assessed by Olympic judges before he even took the ice—and could have cost him a medal.

As Weir explains the politics of judgement in figure skating, he offers another hypothesis to his loss: the judges would not allow for two Americans to win. Weir almost looks as if he is about to break down during this interview and leaves his fans wondering whether his theories could have some truth to them. Was Johnny Weir denied a medal for being Johnny Weir?
