Shaun White Captures Gold... And Flack On Social Media

It was an “oops” moment for Shaun White, who represented the United States in incredible fashion by winning a gold medal for the country in the Olympics. He was so proud after winning gold in the halfpipe that he pulled out an American flag upon learning he had won gold and held it behind him. But while he was celebrating, White got careless with the flag and let it drag on the ground behind him, and even accidentally stepped on it. White’s careless behavior while enjoying his moment of triumph did not sit well with some Americans who were upset that White violated United States Flag Code, which states that the flag should never touch the ground.
