During an interview on Ellen, U.S. Olympian, Gus Kenworthy mentioned that he was confused when they announced that Mike Pence would be leading the U.S. team at the opening ceremony.  

“To have someone leading the delegation that’s directly attacked the LGBT community … it just seems like a bad fit. I feel like the Olympics is all about inclusion and people coming together, and it seems like it’s not really doing that.” said Kenworthy. 

Gus Kenworthy, whom is one of the two openly gay Olympians was very mild on his words compared to his fellow openly gay U.S. Olympian, Adam Rippon whou stated that he would absolutely not go out of his way to meet Pence after knowing his stance on the LGBT community.
