Adam Rippon's Tweet to His Haters During 2018 Olympics

Adam Rippon's Perfect Response to Haters: "I'm a Glamazon B*tch"

Adam Rippon is quickly becoming a breakout star of the 2018 Winter Olympics — in his first-ever appearance at the Games, no less. The 28-year-old figure skater picked up a bronze model in a team event after making headlines with a subtle protest against Vice President Mike Pence, who is in attendance at the Olympics. Though Rippon has attracted many fans in his charismatic debut, he recently addressed those who aren't cheering him on in an incredible tweet.

"To all those who tweet at me saying that they 'hope I fail'," Rippon wrote, "I have failed many times many times in my life." He added, "But more importantly, I've learned from every setback, proudly own up to my mistakes, grown from disappointments, and now I'm a glamazon b*tch ready for the runway."

In less than a day, Adam's tweet exceeded 22,000 retweets and 133,000 "likes," even garnering its own Twitter Moment. Many public figures replied to the tweet, including Chelsea Clinton, who wrote, "You are spectacular Adam. Thank you for your grace & graciousness (& glamour!)."
