not that money or lack of should define someones character, but I'm curious if this post from this thread on reddit
"His dad was layed off when he was a teenager growing up at one of the shittiest places in the Midwest. He payed for all of his skiing by himself. Then he got good enough to be able to win a scholarship to windells academy. He has won multiple x-games gold medals and took home bronze at Sochi 2014. He fucking earned his privilege. But leave it to Reddit to go rip him apart for some dumb shit he did at 19. I've personally met Nick several times and the amount of hate he gets is extremely unwarranted. He's a very down to earth guy and I hate to see Reddit treating him like complete shit. The police and victims had absolutely no idea who broke their windows. Nick at least had the character to step up and admit he had fucked up.
But nooo everyone on Reddit is completely infallible and never did regrettable shit during their teens. Grow the fuck up. You're probably just jealous Nick earned a better life than you."
the reddit hive mind immediately attacked it and it has almost 40 down votes
