In an apparent “error,” a Russian figure skater's Auschwitz-themed outfit made the shortlist for the International Skating Union's “best costume” award https://t.co/ogqk1tG2WM
For anyone wondering who it was that thought Shulepov’s costume deserved nomination - the ISU was kind enough to list that information in their awards FAQ. 🤡💩🤡 https://t.co/yYmOD8It59
@TIME Thank you for covering this! We fans were outraged about this costume since he first skated in it, but the ISU only listened when big organizations became aware of this and started covering it. It would be amazing if you could also take a look at the very obvious national bias...
@TIME Thank you for reporting on this. This incident is one of many that illustrates the complete lack of checks and balances within the organization. They even called the response to the anti-semitic insensitivity of the costume "bad sentiments" from fans. It's outrageous.
