#RyanLochte and #RyanLochteGate embarrassed the United States, but their alleged offenses were minor
But they ticked off Brazil because they allegedly lied about being robbed. In reality, it appears they were detained by police for vandalizing a bathroom. Now I'm sure they were being kids, celebrating after doing well at the Olympics, but they went too far. And, understandably so, Brazilians felt degenerated,. I get that. I can see how they perceive "gringos" think they can do whatever they want in Brazil. It seems like that happened here.
