16 Adam Rippon Tweets That Prove He's Solid Gold

Diply 14 Feb 2018

If you don't know the name Adam Rippon, you obviously don't spend a lot of time on Twitter. The figure skater is the first openly gay American athlete to qualify for the Winter Games, and he could very well wind up on the podium.

Whatever happens, he's already won gold on Twitter.

1. Adam is an unashamed narcissist.

Because, seriously, if GQ wants you to be in a full-on photo spread (even if it is in the Kohl's parking lot), you know you're kind of a big deal, so why pull the fake modesty act?

2. This is Adam in a nutshell.

The 28-year-old from Scranton (yes, that Scranton!) is already an accomplished figure skater in his own right, winning gold throughout his youth career. But between international competitions, he maintains a lively social media presence.

3. He definitely isn't under the radar.

Past U.S. Olympians Hope Solo and Apolo Anton Ohno were gifted with standout names, but fate gave Adam a fairly plain name. But he was born to be a star, and it's safe to say he's no longer under the radar.

4. Awwww. ?

Twitter | @Adaripp

For real, there's something to this. When we're making our way through the world, we're confronted with the judgment and the possibility of failure at pretty much every turn. It's good to know that, whatever happens, your mom will always love you.

5. What kind of fake news was reporting this?

Twitter | @Adaripp

I don't follow figure skating closely, but even I know that skaters, by necessity, have thighs of steel and butts of granite. I believe it's your real butt, Adam.

6. Some publications are willing to speak the truth.

Twitter | @Adaripp

Because if you want to be on the right side of history, don't be an "Adam Rippon's butt is totally fake" truther. It's just not a good look.

7. He'll cut ya.

Twitter | @Adaripp

Because those blades are sharp, and his wit is cutting. Most of his tweets are just plain fun, but when someone does lash out at him, he claps back with the intensity of a thousand suns.

8. That might be an abuse of power.

Twitter | @Adaripp

I'm all for Adam working on the 2018 gay agenda, but serving as gay police chief at the same time he's a gay mafia don is just asking for trouble.

9. You and me both.

Twitter | @Adaripp

It's good to take the love of your life on the odd date, and recognize how awesome they are. I do this all the time, only I don't look nearly this good.

10. He must be sick of these questions by now.

Twitter | @Adaripp

Adam came out in 2015, and due to his outspoken nature, he's constantly fielding questions like this — somehow remaining good-natured the whole time.

11. This tweet is an emotional rollercoaster.

Twitter | @Adaripp

It's so heartfelt, I had tears in my eyes and felt super inspired. Then it took a bit of a left turn, and now I kinda want to be a glamazon bitch too.

12. Making history.

Twitter | @Adaripp

I was a bit skeptical of his claim, but I can't find any info on the inventor of the tank top. Adam's the only one taking credit, so may as well give it to him.

13. If Reese Witherspoon recommends it, I'm down.

Twitter | @Adaripp

I truly don't believe Reese would ever lead her loyal fans astray, so if she tells me to watch Adam Rippon, I'm damn well gonna watch Adam Rippon.

14. Own it.

Twitter | @Adaripp

Before "snowflake" was co-opted by jerks and turned into an insult, it had a positive connotation. We're all unique! I think we should go back to the older definition.

15. That's what apps do.

Twitter | @Adaripp

He's just like the rest of us: trying to find our zen in a busy life, only for it to be ruined by annoying apps that need constant updates.

16. Adam is ?, Adam is ?.

Twitter | @Adaripp

Despite all his joking around, Adam's a true inspiration for all of us. He's worked hard to achieve his goals and at no point has he compromised his true self.
