Kristi Yamaguchi in Pro-Romney Commercial

I always thought she was a truly awful skater, now I hate her too.

by Anonymousreply 7807/16/2013

Is Michelle Kwan doing one too?

by Anonymousreply 107/30/2012

Kwan is doing a commercial for Royal Carribean in a competition with Greg Louganis. I guarantee Yamaguchi wouldn't have done that since she and her mom were so homophobic about Gallindo.

by Anonymousreply 207/30/2012

Never liked her.

There are a couple of other dipshit fundie athletes from the SLC Olympics who appear on that ad, too. I seem to recall a luge or skeleton driver and a speed skater. Of course there's no mention of how those Games were the most unethical in history due to the massive IOC bribery scandal uncovered later.

by Anonymousreply 407/31/2012

Yamaguchi's wing was one of the most underwhelmed Olympic wins I've witnessed. I was 12 when I watched my first Olympics {1992) and my family was rooting for her 'cause we thought she seemed and looked nice in her interviews. Very pretty and engaging. But during the long program I remember all the skaters kept falling all over the place, including Yamaguchi, so she won by default. A couple years ago, I was watching Olympic winning moments on YouTube and hers was kind of embarrassing 'cause it wasn't really an Olympic glory. It wasn't like Sarah Hughes', who placed 4th in the short and made an unbelievable comeback to ultimately win gold. Her long program was very exciting, esepcially when she kept landing all her triple jumps.

It's America. She's allowed to support who she wants, vote for who she wants. You don't have to like it. Move along, nothing to see her. It's not like millions are going to vote for him because of Kristi Who?maguchi.

Here's a link to the ad. It looks like Kristi and some other athletes are basically endorsing Romney's handling of the Olympics.

Do all Asian Americans support Repugs? Tiger momnsyndrome, I suppose.

The thing I find odd is that Kristi had nothing to do with the 2002 Olympics - she didn't even compete there. She was at the 1992 Olympics.

[quote] Do all Asian Americans support Repugs?

Of course. They are all trying desperately to seem "American" and white. Marry white. Vote Republican. And then they're magically white and endowed with privilege.

A more fucked up scenario, one could not possibly envision. As if it will somehow erase their obvious different physical characteristics.

The majority of Asian Americans actually vote Democratic, so it's important not to label them as all being the same.

A Prada bag falls out of Derek Parra's mouth in that ad.

by Anonymousreply 2208/01/2012

R5 she would be the first to admit she didn't think she was going to win either.

She felt all along Midori Ito was going to win, and she was getting herself ready for 1994.

But only after Midori fell in the short program, a door opened. And she went for it.

Disagrees? We're not talking about a disagreement over taxes. There is no debate here. You're either a supporter of bigotry or you're not. To support the current GOP is an endorsement of homophobia -- that isn't hyperbole; it's a fact. We have the GOP-led legislation to back it up.

[quote]OP, when you turn 8 next year, maybe you'll start to outgrow this behavior.

Right, because only a child could understand that it's pretty despicable to support a party that is based in hating people for who they love.

I guess even a child knows better than the average Republican. No surprise.

by Anonymousreply 2608/01/2012

I wonder how many other figure skaters are Republicans?

by Anonymousreply 2708/01/2012

Figure Skating is the land of Republican woman.

add Rachel Flatt, Sarah Hughes, Tessa Virtue and Yuna Kim to that very long list. Actually just assume that all female figure skaters are right wingers.

by Anonymousreply 2808/01/2012

Skate Canadas current Director, Barb MacDonald, actually was in charge of communications for the One Way Ministries Group in 2010, when Skate Canada hired her.

One Way Ministries is an Evangelical Christian lobby group, which through its Ellel division, promotes a cure for homosexuality.

(Link to Ellel Ministries course "Homosexuality and Lesbianism: Biblical teaching on this subject and some of the reasons why people struggle with this problem".)

by Anonymousreply 2908/01/2012

There is no "cure" believe me.

As my colleague Charlie used to say...

" you is what you is!!!!"

by Anonymousreply 3008/01/2012

Looks like Kristi has started her own business and become an 'entrepreneur'.

Maybe that's part of why she has become pro-Romney?

by Anonymousreply 3108/03/2012

Um...Tessa Virtue and Yu-Na aren't even U.S. Citizens.

That being said, I'm a bit disappointed because I really liked her as a skater (more as a pro), but if I can like Roman Polanski's movies, I can still enjoy Yamaguchi's skating. And yes I did just make an analogy between rape and Republican thank you very much.

by Anonymousreply 3208/03/2012

I was at a dinner with her...this handsome man and I kept making eye-contact. He was off in the corner waiting. I was with a bunch of straight people and I was too drunk to make a move, and then low and behold Kristi sits down a table over and the guy is her husband. She seemed like a great mom...her kid is really cute. I was disappointed tho! I just googled her hubbie - he doesn't photograph well, but he's hot in person.

by Anonymousreply 3308/05/2012

In the ad, they mention how Romney kept the games safe. Does anyone else remember the park bombing and the subsequent arrest of an innocent man? Also, am I hearing the ad wrong or does the ad mention Romney made the Olympics safe AFTER September 11th?

by Anonymousreply 3408/05/2012

[quote]Does anyone else remember the park bombing and the subsequent arrest of an innocent man?

Those were at the Atlanta Summer Olympics in 1996. Alas, Romney had nothing to do with them--he was involved in the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics.

R33, her husband is Bret Hedican, a former NHL player. Wouldn't surprise me that he's gay.

by Anonymousreply 3908/05/2012

Just because Sarah Hughes posed with Romney for a photo at the 2002 Olympics doesn't mean she is a Republican. She was only a teenager then, and she was an athlete at the event.

by Anonymousreply 4008/05/2012

That photo is from 2012 R40. She started hanging with Romney in 2002 - 10 years ago.

But as Michelle RepubliKwan was GW Bushs world cultural ambassador and a Bush campaigner, Sarah Hughes looks better (unless Romney wins against Obama).

I always found Kristi to be rather funny-looking, with her flat head and frog-like mouth. Let the Repubs have her.

Johnny Weir has even called out some of these Republican women of Figure Skating. Including their leader, Michelle Kwan.

None of the male figure skaters care for or associate with Rachel Flatt, so she must be well into the anti-gay Jesus World.

Jamie Sale doesn't like Johnny Weir and has attacked him publicly.

Which is ironic considering she is a cheating slut who's had affairs with 2 married men and broken up 2 marriages.

She is now divorced from David Pelletier (who she stole from his first wife) and is now married to hockey player Craig Simpson who she stole from HIS wife.

Isn't she very close friends with Brian Boitano?

by Anonymousreply 5403/31/2013

If like Yamaguchi, you make several maximum cash contributions to and make a commercial for a man who thinks homosexuality is a disease, you also are anti-gay.

Brian Boitano is "Scientology Gay", "Vatican Gay", Republican Party Gay" whatever term works for you.

Brian Boitano not a mentally healthy gay man, and closeted like a Scientologist.

She's not anti-gay. People just have to attach someone as being anti-gay because they support a Right Winger. God forbid there be other reasons they support someone.

"God forbid there be other reasons they support" the KKK too R56? Just using your own logic.

Obviously being anti-gay is not an issue for you, but for the gay community, it is a very, VERY big deal.

by Anonymousreply 5803/31/2013

Maybe Kristi should move up to Canada.

Skate Canada doesn't like homosexuals either, plus they elected an anti-gay Evangelical leader (Harper) already.

Kristi would really feel more at home in Canada these days, she trained in Edmonton years ago, so she knows the place already.

by Anonymousreply 5903/31/2013


That makes no sense. Youre making a statement that she's anti-gay just because she's a Republican. Unless she's actually made statements that are anti-gay, you can't label her as such.

It's amazing how we can ask for tolerance and yet not give it.

You back-of-the-bus gays are so pathetic. She supports anti-gay bigots financially and by doing publicity for them (Romney for example). Most gays are sensible enough to know EXACTLY what that means. But log cabin idiots like R60 who refuse to accept the truth about some celebrity they like, deserve to be where they are...the back of the bus.

So you believe in everything your political party supports 100%?

Because believe what you want, it seems more idiotic to make blanket statements about someone because of their political party.

Not that you'd grasp that.

R56, you're a mental defective. Seriously, it's idiots like you that are what's wrong with the world, excusing ignorant bigotry as if it's just some arcane policy that doesn't affect anyone, when it's clearly the core of their belief system.

by Anonymousreply 6803/31/2013

R62 is an idiot.

R63 makes a brilliant little comment exposing exactly why.

But hey, Hitler made the trains run on time, so he's not ALL bad, right?

Romney is evil, and so is the entire Republican party, for a vast number of reasons... their ignorant anti-gay bigotry and hatred is just one symptom of it all.

If you support them, you ARE anti-gay, and you ARE part of the problem.

US Figure Skating is actually starting to distance itself front the anti-gay Republican skaters like Kristi Yamaguchi and Scott Hamilton. Even Kwan recently left her Republican roots.

The Republican operated skating franchise, Stars on Ice, is basically dead now, doing only 6 shows this year. If it were not for Canadas 12 shows, Stars on Ice might not even continue next year. (For some reason Canada's skating fanbase is very right wing).

Once figure skating sheds its right wing roots, the showbiz types should come back in and start re-inventing the skating shows again for the next generation, which only helps the skaters as training is very expensive.

Kristi Yamaguchi is a skater from a past era, which is never coming back.

Race played a factor in her decision, no doubt what so ever!
