Not too long ago, in September 2013 to be exact, retired Russian figure skater Irina Rodnina tweeted a racist photo of President Barack Obama, wife Michelle and a banana. The tweet was eventually deleted, but it was too little to late.
Rodnina lit the Olympic flame at Sochi’s Opening Ceremony on Friday. With her in front of the world, Deadspin brought the tweet back to life.
Maybe try to change, Russia?
