Pyeongchang, the South shall rise again, Korea- Offending large groups of people is now easier than ever. The slightest twinge of assumed disrespect will send droves of internet trolls your way. The newest offended group are Patriots/Veterans.
"I know personally when I saw him drop that flag from my couch, in my dungaroos, I was outraged. The entire time he was on that there podium accepting the medal for our country with the National Anthem playing, I was busy stuffing my face with Doritos and yelling profanity at him - still seated." Says Ken Allen, local uberPatriot.
At the same time, several Veteran-owned apparel companies sell flag underwear, socks, tanktops, basically if it can go on your filthy skin, they sell it. These genital hammocks, for whatever, are considered patriotic. Yet when an athlete that is so overcome with emotion and pride for his Country, loses grip on the flag, he's a sinner.
So, which is worse?
