Jimmy Kimmel Mocks The U.S. Olympic Lugers For Complaining About Gay Jokes

“How do you not make fun of a sport that’s essentially high velocity spooning?”

1. Some American lugers competing in Sochi have complained recently about a Canadian PSA that criticized Russia’s anti-LGBT propaganda law with a cheeky take on luging.

“The games have always been a little gay. Let’s fight to keep them that way,” quipped the Canadian Institute of Diversity and Inclusion.

2. In an attempt to assuage lugers concerns that everyone thinks their sport is gay, Jimmy Kimmel recommended some different positions which he hopes will help clear the air for good.

3. “This is the traditional position for the double luge.”
