If an American athlete that happened to be Black traveled to a European country for the Olympics, disrespected locals and then fabricated a tale about those same locals robbing him at gunpoint, how would the media respond? The clowns of Fox News? Politicians? Would Donald Trump be giving a press conference right now calling on President Barack Obama to extradite that athlete … or nah? Seriously, imagine if Ryan Lochte was Latrell Sprewell. He’d be under arrest right now.

Ryan Lochte is White privilege personified … a drunken frat bro responsible for whipping up an international sh*t-storm by accusing a Brazilian dressed like a police officer of sticking a gun to his head and robbing him. In reality though, the aquatic thug’s tall tale never happened, despite initially seeming plausible … because, well, it’s Brazil and we’ve all seen City of God.

So, what did happen on the night that the celebrated swimmer and three of his Olympic bros allegedly got robbed? Well, according to a Brazilian police source “one of the swimmers was seen on CCTV footage breaking down the door to the bathroom at [a] gas station and fighting with a security guard.” That quote given to ABC News is very different than the story being peddled by the athlete. So is the surveillance video that shows one of the swimmers urinating on the wall of the gas station in Rio’s Barra da Tijuca neighborhood.

Perhaps Lochte and his cohorts thought they were still in America, a country where pointing the finger at a person of color usually means persecution and prosecution of that subject without analysis. Hello, Central Park Five. Lochte should have made sure his Google Maps app was connected to the local wifi. His White privilege didn’t make it onto the plane when he departed for Rio, because even as racist as Brazilians can be, they’re Brazilians first: Black and White after. Nationalism. And it’s chlorine clear they don’t take lightly to Americans of any complexion coming into their country, acting like fools and then placing the blame solely on the shoulder of its citizens.

Neither is Twitter who has been bashing Lochte and the others for their behavior.

Ryan Lochte, Jack Conger, Gunnar Bentz and James Feigen thought they would get away with their lie because of who they are and where they’re from in contrast with the unfortunate reputation Rio has earned over the years. We’re glad they were wrong. And don’t waste your time with comments about Ryan Lochte being half Cuban; he and Elian Gonzalez have nothing in common.

    What a dumb and lame Clickbait title and article. Yes I clicked on it but not going to read the nonsense.

      You mean because it is absolutely true. The logic is mathematically undeniable. There is a huge double standard. If you can’t see it, you are either ultra-entitled, or cold-blooded, or without a functioning brain or a mix of the three.

        There are many double standards…some benefit women, some benefit men, some benefit whites, some benefit blacks, etc, etc, etc.

        But “white privilege” is a stupid, empty term that dumb, empty-minded people use. It’s for simpletons.

          Lmfao, you just proved his point!! White privilege is beyond obvious here!! First of all pissing on a wall is a misdemeanor!!! It’d indecent exposure!! Destroying property is a misdemeanor or s felony!! Making out a false police report is a felony!! Then he just left his friends and flew back home!! Now where the fuc& is fox news when you need them???

    America is SO racist yet. Or let’s rephrase it, not fully racist, more double standard everywhere every time without even acknowledging it!

    I mean the double standard is MATHEMATICAL.
    On one side: white MEN raped women (Stanford, Colorado, etc.) and/or acted like thugs abroad and have just received a slap on the hand (“boys will be boys bro’ ‘Merica).
    On the other side: black men or even just teens made minor offences and are slaughtered, killed like animals (oh niggers are so violent).

    Wake up or God will judge you. If you don’t see to which extent this is unfair and unethical!

On Monday, the two were photographed separately arriving to Italian restaurant Madeo in West Hollywood. Does this mean the two are kicking up a bit of a romance? Not quite.

Sources tell E! News that the two are working on something special.  “They are discussing working together. They aren’t dating,” the insider explained. “Abel is always thinking about new collaborations with talented artists. Abel has many female friends and most of them are in the industry.”

Now that we can forget about naming these two the new it couple, we are now more concerned about what they have up their sleeves.

Abel was previously linked to Selena Gomez and Bella Hadid. Katy last publicly dated Orlando Bloom.
