If Johnny Weir is good enough to compete for his country at the Olympic Games, then he is good enough to perform at their little ice show. If Smucker’s is truly leaving him out for the rumored reason, I won’t be supporting their products again.
I love Johnny Weir – I have never been a fan of figure skating until I saw him skate. I would definately buy tickets to see him skate!!!
we’re in a society where we can’t breathe without offending someone. so who gives a care that he’s not part of a show. WAAH WAAH WAAH! GROW UP! GLAAD needs to mind their own business. Johnny probably doesn’t even care that he’s not been asked to be a part of the show.
I haven’t attended an ice show since childhood, but if Johnny Weir would appear at the Stars on Ice tour, I would be first in line to buy tickets. He is a true artist, and brings an elegance to his performances that is missing in others’ routines. I couldn’t care less about his sexual orientation, and find it hard to believe that it would even be an issue to anyone whatsoever. He would be a huge star attraction, and the producers are ignorant/ridiculous if they don’t have him as a feature star in the tour!!

Christian Louboutin High-heeled shoes is Eternal love in wowan’s love, even pain or tired . But in order to be more beautiful and look higher ,most of wowen opt for it that is supposed to be good for them . from fashion sense and heights in 2009 , the Christian Louboutin series is undoubtedly the top fashion sandals.
The point is not if Johnny Weir wants to be in that homophobic corn-fest or not. It’s that this country is full of paranoid bigots who hate diversity and stupidly think that kids are actually in danger of becoming gay if they see a gay person. Can you get more ignorant than that? What kids are in danger of when they see Johnny Weir and Adam Lambert is accepting other people and not being bigots. And that scares their ignorant redneck parents.
I think that Jeremy, who responded above, needs to follow his own advice and “mind his own business”!
Jeremy should understand that fugure skaters perform at competitions all over the world AT THEIR OWN EXPENSE! They pay their own way for air fares, equipment, accomodations (for them AND their coaches, choreographers, and other necessary entourage members) in order to compete at OLYMPIC EVENTS and other competitive events all over the world. The way they support themselves and obtain the money needed for these expenses is via private and commercial sponsors and through PAID GIGS at ice shows such as Smucker’s STARS ON ICE!
Without paid gigs such as Smucker’s STARS ON ICE, skaters such as Weir will not be able to afford to travel all over the world to compete and win medals and represent their country in these non-paying skating events!
So, while Weir may not personally give a SMUCK for Smucker’s, their products, or their corporate mentality, he does very much desperately need the income that comes from performing in such a quality show. Sadly, since the only other major ice show in the USA has gone out of business, Smucker’s STARS ON ICE is the ONLY remaining quality ice show left in the USA, therefore it is the ONLY chance that Weir has to make money to support his competitive career in Ice Skating!
So, Jeremy, who gives a SMUCK what YOU think, with your “WAAH WAAH WAAH” nasty comments? You need to understand a little bit before you should go off making your nasty UNNECESSARY and ILL-INFORMED COMMENTS!
