This is cute. Chelsea Wolfe is a transgender member of the USA Olympic team competing as an alternate in the BMX Freestyle event at the Tokyo Olympics, and she says her goal is to burn the American flag at the podium.

Fox News reported that in a since-deleted Facebook post from last spring, Wolfe wrote that her goal was “to win the Olympics so I can burn a US flag on the podium. This is what they focus on during a pandemic. Hurting trans children.”

Maybe worry about your dental hygiene first? And thanks for making me hope you lose.

I’m now rooting against a US athlete, never thought I’d say that but here we are.

First time I'll be hoping a US team/athlete loses. 👎

Way to rep the USA. 🤦🏻♀️

If I wanted to set back a domestic political cause a generation or more, burning the American flag in front of the world makes sense.

Think she has the balls to do it if she wins?

America: a country so great, even its haters want to represent it at the Olympics

Growing up, I remember always being told 'you can be anything you want' in this country. I guess that still holds true. Yes folks … you too can become a selfish hater 🤡 in this country.
