Shaun White was able to celebrate his Olympic gold medal victory for all of two seconds before an ABC reporter brought up some not so flattering allegations of alleged sexual misconduct at a news conference.

Matt Gutman from ABC News asked whether White believes allegations of sexual harassment will tarnish the snowboarder's legacy to which White replied: "You, know, honestly, I’m here to talk about the Olympics, not gossip and stuff." White later ended up apologizing for using the term "gossip" to describe the allegations.

The 31-year-old, who has been sponsored since he was 7,  took home his 3rd gold medal for the halfpipe earning the U.S. its fourth gold medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyongyang, South.Korea

White is being accused of sexual harassment by his former bandmate and drummer Lena Zawaideh. She claims he made sexual remarks to her while they were in a band together and forced her to watch "sexually disturbing videos." She sued White in 2016 for sexual harassment and breach of contract.
