U.S. speedskater Shani Davis took to Twitter this morning to rip Team USA after he lost out on a “dishonorable” coin toss to decide the American flag bearer at the Opening Ceremonies.

Davis, who is black, referenced “#BlackHistoryMonth2018 in his tweet which has many on Twitter believing he thought racism was involved in how the flag bearer was chosen:

Get it? Coin flips are racist because the white woman won:

Basically the athletes vote for the flag bearer and it was tied 4-4, resulting in the coin toss to decide the winner. From the AP:

Hamlin and Davis were among eight nominees for the flagbearer role, and athletes from each of the eight winter sports federations — bobsled and skeleton, ski and snowboarding, figure skating, curling, biathlon, hockey, speedskating and luge — represented those nominees in a balloting that took place Wednesday night.

Eventually, the final vote was deadlocked at 4-4. Hamlin won a coin toss, the predetermined method of picking a winner if all else failed in the athlete-led process. The U.S. Olympic Committee confirmed the tie, and that voters knew if the tie couldn’t be broken by them the coin toss would have to occur.

Can’t Davis just admit she deserves it?

Screenshot for posterity:

This sounds like “sour grapes” to us, too:

And what an awful way to start the games:
