Adam Rippon, America’s newest darling, is becoming more of a fan favorite on Twitter.
Rippon is the first openly gay American athlete that has participate in the Winter Olympics.
The figure skater recently led Team USA to a bronze medal and the U.S has falling in love with him due to his lively personality, crazy amount of talent on the rink, and adoration of Reese Witherspoon.
While the 28-year old has received a ton of love, there are people who don’t want him to succeed. He took to Twitter to shut down all of his haters.
To all those who tweet at me saying that they “hope I fail”, I have failed many times many times in my life. But more importantly, I’ve learned from every setback, proudly own up to my mistakes, grown from disappointments, and now I’m a glamazon bitch ready for the runway.

With that attitude you're doing things right off the ice, too. Gold medal or last place, you're a winner.

Rippon’s tweet is a great example of how to response to haters with grace and class. By all accounts, the guy seems really cool and down to earth, so I don’t understand the hate he is getting.
