If you’ve got something to say about Adelina Sotnikova stealing the gold, say it here.
The top Sports news list at Naver says it all:
UPDATE: The Facebook pages of the ISU and Russian President Vlad Putin are reportedly getting flooded with angry comments from Korean netizens. The comments at the ISU page are mostly in English, while the ones on Vlad’s page are largely in Korean… and a bit earthier. Or so the report says.
Meanwhile, SBS announcer Bae apparently left a couple of comments on Putin’s Facebook, too, namely, “If you’re going to hold a neighborhood sports day, why did you invite us?” and “Sochi is the suchi (shame) of the Olympics.” He later removed the comments.
Some netizens, though, worry about a repeat of what happened to the British skater Elise Christie, while others worry that Chinese and Japanese netizens and possibly North Korean cyber agents posing as (South) Koreans might post abuse just to make Koreans look bad.
Ordinarily, I’d say online abuse makes Korea look bad, but frankly, I can think of few world figures more deserving of salty online commentary than Vlad Putin.
