“Australian swimmers Nick D’Arcy and Kenrick Monk have been slapped with a social media ban and will be sent home early from the Olympics as punishment for posting pictures of themselves toting firearms on Twitter and Facebook,” Reuters reports. As our man Dan posted previously, the controversy surrounded the swimmers’ California dreaming Facebook photo [above] drew fire from The Land Down Under, where handguns are banned and “glamorizing” guns makes antis apoplectic. Excuse the metaphor, but the entire country is up in arms about the aquatic duos’ ballistic brotherhood. And so the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) has acted decisively. What’s more, there’s more. “The AOC said the punishment was separate to a disciplinary process being carried out by Swimming Australia (SA).” Clearly, a dunking is in order. Meanwhile, it’s too bad Australians don’t enjoy freedom of speech. Or, again, gun rights.
