This will be a short rant, I promise, and I might receive some flack for this, but I really don't care: Give it a rest people!!! (triple exclamation point)
So he smoked some pot- it's not the end of the world. Look at Hugh Grant, with Devine Brown, Alec Baldwin calling his daughter a fat useless pig, or David Duchovny and Michael Douglas going to rehab for sex addictions. None of them were put through the ringer like Michael Phelps and I would take pot smoking over sex addictions, transvestite hookers, and verbally abusive parents, ANY DAY.
No, that doesn't mean I don't think he was pretty stupid for doing what he did, because I do. But I also recognize that he's a young guy experiencing real freedom for the first time in his life. He's going to make mistakes, like any of us.
In my opinion, the person who should be condemned, is whomever took the picture and sold out my FAVORITE Olympian, with the Adonis-like body. Why is no one talking about that? Who does that? I think Michael Phelps is a good guy who admitted his mistake when he really didn't have to.
I hope this doesn't spark any controversy, my internet friends, as you all should agree with me! haha.
(I was just joking about everyone having to agree with me)
