The only m-f-er to make winning a gang of gold medals seem like yesterday’s news, Michael Phelps, has been smoking reefers:

Michael Phelps is unbeatable in the water. It’s on dry land where he runs into trouble. Phelps has embarrassed himself again after a triumphant Olympics, this time getting his picture snapped as he inhaled from a marijuana pipe. The photo wound up in a British tabloid Sunday, forcing Phelps to publicly apologize and his handlers to deal with sponsors who are surely none too pleased about the swimmer’s choices away from the pool.

“I engaged in behavior which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment,” Phelps said in the statement released by one of his agents. “I’m 23 years old and despite the successes I’ve had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again.”

It all sounded so familiar, with good reason. After the 2004 Athens Games, an underage Phelps was arrested for drunken driving, pleaded guilty and apologized to his fans, saying he wouldn’t make the same mistake again.

This was different, to be sure, but it could have the same damaging impact on Phelps’ image and reputation, which were riding high after he won a record eight gold medals at the Beijing Games.

Damn, y’all.  What a nicca gotta do to be able to sit back and smoke his sh*t in peace?  Win 9 gold medals??  SMH

    If he wants to make 100 million in endorsements, he better learn how to smoke at home. He is young, and he was never the cute, smart or popular kid when he was growing up so he is making up for lost time, but he better make better choices.

  • Mrs. Rance

    At first I was shouting at the TV for them to leave him alone but then I remembered all those stacks he’s collecting for his wholesome image. I’ma have to say, shame on you dude. I know them people paid you millions and now you don’t even have to hold down a job or otherwise life a finger to do anything, but don’t turn into yet another spoiled athlete. PETA will take you down if they have to.

    If he was black his ass would be on the chopping block, they wouldn’t waste any time pulling as many endorsements as they could, but this is the difference between black and white, if you’re white and do something stupid, oh, you just made a mistake slap on the wrist, but when it’s a black person you’re automatically labeled a crimnal.

  • Hannibal

  • Glok9n: The real glok !!!

    @ STEF BOOGIE! KICK THAT SHIT SIS! AHA!

  • Razzell Dazzell

    Who cares….it’s not making him swim slower! LOL. Really, he’s 22, he’s human, and he’s in an experimental phase of his life. Yes it was irresponsible, but there are a lot worse things happening. I don’t care what anyone saids.. if he’s pr smart, put him in rehab, write a letter, do community service, and keep doing you (minus the camera)! He doesn’t need anyone advice, he is intelligent, and so is his mother. They will get through this as a family. He made a mistake, I’m sure EVERYONE can relate.

  • PURPPLE, just call me TADOW

    See the messed up part is he has to apologize and be embarrassed. He dont have nothing to be embarrassed about!

  • Glok9n: The real glok !!!

    SEE BOYZ AND GURLZ WEED IS THE GATEWAY…GOLD MEDALS, ENDORSEMENTZ AND ALL THAT GOOD SHIT! ….INSPIRE YOUR CHILD TO PUFF A JOINT…HE/SHE TOO CAN BECOME THIS ASPIRING!!!
