Revoke Daily Beast IOC press pass.

This petition had 9,738 supporters

Nico Hines and The Daily Beast showed a severe lack of judgement when they decided it would be funny to gawk and laugh at gay people on dating apps. The result of their lack of concern for gay peoples lives put gay Olympians in very real and serious danger by outing them.  The Daily Beast doubled down on their article and insisted they were not in the wrong. Eventually, The Daily Beast offered a non apology, until it was finally forced to offer an apology due to the sheer outrage of tens of thousands of people.
The Daily Beast is not a legitimate news organization and does not deserve to be treated as such. We call for the revoking of its IOC press pass immediately. Outing gay Olympians from Countries where they can suffer physical injuries, abuse, jail,and  even death for being gay is not journalism. Consider joining the boycott group.

John Avlon, the editor who allowed this to happen should also be held accountable.
