Skier Gus Kenworthy jabs Mike Pence with tweet

Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy is no fan of vice president Mike Pence.

In a tweet sent on Thursday, Kenworthy revealed that he broke his thumb the day before in practice but said that he was still very much planning to compete. He also joked that the injury would keep him from having to shake Pence’s hand.

Kenworthy, who is openly gay, is scheduled to compete in slopestyle skiing over the weekend. He also won silver in slopestyle at the 2014 Sochi Games.

Meanwhile, Pence, who is known for his anti-LGBT views, is in PyeongChang to support the United States teams. Kenworthy is not the only Olympian who has taken issue with the vice president at this year’s games either.
