Olympic swimmer, Ryan Lochte has come under fire this week for allegedly lying about being robbed in Brazil at a gas station during the Rio 2016 olympics. Up until yesterday, stories differed on what exactly happened but one thing became abundantly clear from the frat boy antics, Ryan Lochte is a douchebag.

It shouldn't come as a surprise. Ryan's been this way for years. Just take one look at his reality tv show on E! The show was supposed to be a deep dive into what a Bro like Lochte would do in a variety of scenarios. Turns out nobody gave a shit about Lochte shopping for puka shell necklaces and the show was cancelled only 5 weeks after it premiered.

Lochte has been an unapologetic douche for years and everything came to a head this week at the Rio Olympics. Turns out he may have tried to fight a security guard in a gas station restroom. Typical bro behavior that he decided to cover up by saying he was mugged. Classy move for an Olympic athlete. Lochte's lie has since caused an international commotion and he doesn't seem to care because, well, he's an entitled douche.

Lochte recounted his mugging "incident" to NBC like this: "And then the guy pulled out his gun, he cocked it, put it to my forehead, and he said, 'Get down,' and I put my hands up. I was like, 'Whatever,'"

Brazilian authorities are taking this seriously. They've already removed two allegedly involved American swimmers from their flight home to the US. There's also a third bro who was said to be involved is also still in Rio but where's the alpha bro, Lochte? He's back in America.

Now that there's actual video evidence that he was lying he's apologized but he's still a douche. Let's be clear, this isn't something to laugh about. This is actually something to vilify, it's classic white male privilege that causes Lochte to believe he can act in whatever way he wants. It's not something we should put up with and it's certainly not something we should let represent us on the world stage that is the Olympic games.

Listen to Lochte's bullshit in the video below from Landon Production. Ryan may have 12 medals but it's gone to his head. We've created this bleach blonde douche who thinks wearing grillz and lying about muggings are good ideas, now we must destroy it.
