Gay Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy has fans going wild after he made a gay sex joke in a tweet to fellow Olympian Adam Rippon.

Kenworthy quoted a tweet from NBC Sports last night, which read: “Jason Brown tops Nathan Chen in Internationaux de France short program.”



He then tagged Adam Rippon, saying: “omg @adaripp you retired before all the fun stuff started happening.”

The tweet has been a hit with fans of Kenworthy and Rippon, and has amassed over 5,000 likes and retweets since it was posted.

One fan replied: “That’s quite the headline!”

Another said: “Maybe this will entice and convince Adam to come out of retirement.”

Somebody else said: “And they showed that on TV.”

‘We finally did each other’

This is not the first time Kenworthy and Rippon have exchanged jokes of a sexual nature.

Less than a month ago, Kenworthy tweeted a photo of himself where he was dressed in an outfit similar to Rippon’s iconic Oscars leather harness look.

In the photo, Kenworthy replicated the look and captioned it: “Adam Ripoff.”

However, Rippon had the last laugh by replying: “We finally did each other.”

Kenworthy replied: “Tbh I’ve been wanting to do you since we met…”

This is not the first time Kenworthy has made headlines. Last February, he had a viral moment all of his own.

After losing the final race of the 2018 Winter Olympics, he kissed his boyfriend Matthew Wilkas on television, leading to a flood of acclaim and celebration.

It was just a peck on the lips, but the fact that it took place on NBC, live on primetime network TV, in front of tens of millions internationally, made it historic.

Then, last month, Kenworthy posted a photo of himself on Instagram wearing nothing but his skis on a snowy mountainside to celebrate his 27th birthday

“27-years-ago I came out of my mum wearing this exact same outfit,” he wrote.

“Strong queens make strong queens. Happy (my) birthday, Ma! #27″

The picture, which appears to be from an ESPN shoot from last year, has been “liked” more than 160,000 times.

Earlier this year, the sportsman and his boyfriend Matthew Wilkas revealed they had rescued a puppy from a South Korean meat farm, where Kenworthy was competing in the Winter Olympics for the first time since he came out in 2015.

However, just months later, the 27-year-old US athlete told his followers that their dog, called Beemo, had passed away.

“After Beemo passed away I was feeling completely empty and I reached back out to the Humane Society International to find out what happened to that litter,” he continued.

“I found out that they were still in Korea and I began getting photo and video updates on them as I waited for another farm closure and an opportunity for them to be brought to the States.

“That finally happened and four days ago I picked this little girl up in DC.

“She’s a five-month-old Jindo/Lab mix and we named her Birdie (because birds were one of Beemo’s favorite things in the world),” explained Kenworthy.
