Broadcasters criticized by gay rights group

Broadcasters in Quebec and Australia are in hot water for on-air references to the sexual orientation of Olympic figure skaters.

In Canada, a gay rights group wants a public apology from French-language broadcaster over comments about figure skater Johnny Weir, reported AP. The story added that Australia’s Channel Nine “reportedly received complaints from viewers after two of its hosts joked about the masculinity of Weir and other male skaters.”
