Ryan Lochte: What he said, really meant and definitely didn’t

Ryan Lochte ‘dumbs down’ Michael Phelps.

What he said:

“I’m not concerned – he just makes dumb decisions.”

Michael Phelps’ compatriot and Swimming USA teammate Ryan Lochte is critical of his second misdemeanor in ten years. Earlier this week, the Olympic legend was booked for Driving Under the Influence (DUI). He has since issued an apology to his fans.

Lochte added:

“He has so much money to get a driver. I even have a driver. It just stinks for the sport of swimming.

But he will become smarter from this. Luckily he did not hurt himself or someone else.”

Lochte later tempered his remarks tweeting thus:

What he really meant:

“You’ve got to admit being booked twice for DUI is stupid. Especially when you know that as a celebrity you are under the scanner every moment. Consider the endorsements he could possibly lose. Besides, he could have killed someone, you know. That’s the most important thing.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Don’t worry, Michael. You could always make  do with some breathalyser and beer endorsements instead. And how about an appearance in a public interest campaign, ‘Don’t Drink and Drive’?”
