As a figure skater, Johnny Weir not only does Johnny bring athleticism, grace, and strength to the arena, but he brings PAGEANTRY, HONEY! And with the 2020 Summer Olympics coming to an end, Johnny brought his signature glamour to the closing ceremonies. And of course, he shone brighter than the Olympic flame itself! His poise and glamor were too much for one hater, Jenna Ellis–who was one of the lawyers working for Donald Trump to push his election fraud conspiracy lies. Jenna may crave “Biblical masculinity” but what she got was a reading from the Book Of Weir, who told her in way too kind terms to fuck off.
Johnny let Adam Rippon slide when he tried to toss a lil’ bit of mild shade his way when Adam was riding the high of being the current Hot Twink on the scene. But Johnny knows such a title is fleeting and can make you drunk with power, so Adam got a pass when he suggested Johnny may be “jealous” of him. But Jenna was left no quarter! Jenna seemed to have an issue with Johnny’s choice of closing ceremony attire, which was of course a cream blazer with one see-through arm, and a bejeweled Olympic emblem hairpin. Honestly, this look was pretty toned down for Johnny Weir. But I guess Jenna wanted Johnny in something showing “Biblical masculinity.” So like… a shapeless robe? Sandals? Unclear.
Johnny reacted to Jenna’s bullshit with kindness, which was nice of him because he really could have dragged her to the icy depths of Hell and back–we know he has the range. But instead, Johnny said this:
The man I’ve grown into is a human that embraces the strength of the man & woman who raised me to be myself. If you feel squashed by the boot of someone else’s beliefs, remember you are free to live your life the way YOU believe. Also, religion isn’t an excuse for hate. 🤍 https://t.co/qhrIUV85zC

In the Bible, I’m pretty sure it says women on their periods can’t even speak to men, so depending on what Jenna’s flow is like she actually may not even be allowed to be tweeting at Johnny based on her own beliefs, so maybe she should consider that. Meanwhile, everyone else had a good time enjoying the pomp and circumstance Johnny provided us:
Johnny Weir is definitely a Loki variant. Not sure which universe but he's a Loki pic.twitter.com/jIzEY3mKf0

Jenna should think twice if she wants to slander Johnny Weir. I’m pretty sure he knows every rhinestone and sequin-maker on the globe so if she’s not careful, Jenna may find herself cut off from glitter forever!
