Usain Bolt annoyed by claim he criticized Glasgow

GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) -- Usain Bolt isn't finding his first trip to the "Friendly Games" to be completely friendly.

The Jamaican sprinter was in the headlines Wednesday for allegedly using an expletive to describe his experience so far at the Commonwealth Games.

The Times of London says it spoke to Bolt as he left the athletes' village in Glasgow on Tuesday. Bolt, who is only competing in the 4x100 relay, was quoted as saying he was "not really" having fun in Glasgow and the games were "a bit s---."

Bolt tweeted Wednesday that "I'm waking up to this nonsense" and called the report "lies."

Commonwealth Games Federation chief executive Mike Hooper says "we're very pleased with how he's responded."

The Times story remained unchanged Wednesday on its website.

Bolt spent Tuesday mixing with Prince William, his wife Kate and Prince Harry.

If this guy would shut his mouth, he (and the sport) would be far better off.

Didn’t Usain Bolt learn anything from Donald Sterling, Dog the bounty hunter, Justin Bieber and other celebrities? Anything you say or do in private can become public knowledge very quickly with today’s social media. Bolt most likely made unfavorable statements to someone about the games in private perhaps taken out of context. Right now that doesn’t matter people have already made up their minds. The media loves to build up celebs just to tear them down.

Why does anyone care what a sports figure, actor, musician, team owner, etc. says anyway? Why is everybody in the world so sensitive?

So why do we care that one person was "annoyed". We get tired of these elitists and their sensitive feelings.
