    After winning a record third Olympic gold medal in the men’s halfpipe, Shaun White was traditionally handed an American flag. Unfortunately for the snowboarding legend, it turned out to be the only negative part of his performance.

    As White passed the flag to his right hand, that was clutching his snowboard, the flag ended up on the ground being drug through the snow while he walked off the hill.

    Needless to say, social media users were quick to jump on the snowboarder, who just had a sexual harassment case against him dismissed, settling out of court. Patriotic Twitter users showed no mercy.

    Of course, others in the twitterverse promptly countered with their own venom.
