Michael Phelps: Olympic stoner

February 1st, 2009 // 187 Comments

Olympic gold medalists Michael Phelps might have just smoked his way out of the 2012 Olympics after a photo of him hitting the bong surfaced in News of the World. It was taken in November when Michael stopped by the University of South Carolina at Columbia to visit a girl he was “secretly seeing.” After presumably having his way with her, he showed up at a house party with a bunch of random chicks and drank his face off. USA!:

“He arrived with a group of girls hanging all over him. Jaws hit the floor when he walked in. You don’t get many celebrities in Columbia, so when Phelps comes to your party it’s a very big deal.
“He didn’t know many people so you’d think he’d be a little shy. But he was loud, obnoxious and slamming beers from the get-go. Every girl wanted a piece of him and every guy wanted to be his best buddy. He couldn’t get enough of all the attention.”
As he basked in his hero status, Phelps knocked back beers and shots of spirits. And when a student offered him the glass bong engraved with red writing, he did not hesitate, says our source.

Because he’s an idiot, Michael Phelps admitted it’s him in the picture and released the following statement to the AP today:

“I engaged in behavior which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment. I’m 23 years old and despite the successes I’ve had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again.”

If Michael Phelps wants to pour alcohol into his face, smoke the marijuana like a cigarette and fornicate with various loose women before beating the world’s pants off at swimming, shouldn’t we as a nation stand behind him? I mean, Christ, if he was anymore American, he’d be out fighting crime with a talking bald eagle for a sidekick. But then how would other nations know we dominate at the breast stroke? You gotta think these things through.

    Wonder if he is like Greg Luganis. A homo. If so, he wasn’t smoking anything, he was trying to deep throat that thing.
    A gold medal for swimming. SWIMMING. Funny, it either swim or drown. He gets a medal for not drowning?
    Shows you where the attention of the human species are. Definately not on important issues.

    Holy shit whoever wrote this is one uptight prick. Loosen up a little. Yes drugs are bad and we shouldn’t be advertising that they’re a good thing, but we shouldn’t be criticizing him for it. Jesus Christ.

  7. gvd

    Forgot to mention: who cares what he does in his own free time. The world isn’t high school chill out.

    This must be why he eats so much…

    Too bad Americans don’t make alcohol as taboo as they do marijuana, since consumption of alcohol actually has far worse consequences (liver disease, beating your children, driving 80mph into a pedestrian, punching your wife in the face, vomiting, dancing, having sex fat or ugly people, etc).

    MR. PHELPS, IN AMERICA WE DON’T LIKE “THE MARIJUANA”, EVEN IF IT’S HARMLESS TO PRETTY MUCH EVERYONE BUT YOURSELF. WHY CAN’T YOU JUST GET DUIs LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, THEN YOU’D STILL BE OUR HERO!

    WHAT AN EVIL LITTLE MAN!

    You guys are missing the point. Weed is not bad for you. In fact…………
    shit……..I forgot what I was going to say.

    Oh yeah. I remember. Americans are stupid. With all of their wealth and happiness. So stupid.

  11. greeeeeeeeeeeenz

    ROOR FOR THE FUCKING WIN. people need to watch the documentary’s about marijuana, its not bad for ya =p, see how it got flipped around to a bad image, its ridiculous.

  12. big dan

    it says in the bible pertake of the herb of the earth for it is good for man whats the big deal if he was smoking meth I would have a prioblem but its a herb if you can plant a seed nurture the plant and reap the benifets its no diffrent than growing tomatos or anything else all natural

  13. lcsmom

    Isn’t his mom the principal of a high school???? What slack would she cut her students? Hey….if you’re that full of yourself and that stupid that you don’t mind risking a few million dollars for a hit of pot….go for it. You’re in the public eye now dude…..you pay a price for that….you certainly reap the benefits.

    It’s not like he just got busted taking steroids or performance enhancers like MANY professional athletes have. They’re still in the game! What would be more devastating is if he lost and this photo popped up. Then I would say,” Yeah, he’s not worth a damn…He failed all his fans…He threw away the Gold…” Nope, he’s still amazing even with his weak, pot filled lungs. HA!

  16. gabz

    fuck yeah bitch. this just makes him sexier…

  17. jBiGGz

    “Toke T-t, Toke it up ” Thats American as APPLE PiE’, son !! He a deffinate Pothead “Poster child “of a America.

    how does our media explain this:

    9-gold-medalist-in-a-single-year-phelps smokes pot. i thought was supposed tot ruin lives? EVERYONE smokes pot. one of the most elite ATHLETES in recorded history has now admitted he smokes. when will we pull out heads out of our politician’s ass…

    the fact that phelps smokes is the ULTIMATE evidence that it needs to be legal. honestly, that was my first thought. i never even considered the medias view “marijuana is bad, so then phelps must be too”

  20. Hotbox

    Throat cancer dumbasses. Yes, yes, AND YES. It’s TRUE. And I guess, in the absolute WORST case (or best in bizarro world) scenario, “everyone” means 25% of said social circle.

  21. StupidAmericans

    You guys said it yourself. He’s has inspired millions. So I guess it would only be a matter of time when kids smoke weed themselves since they were so inspired by him. Haha!

  22. MeganJosephine

    who the fuck cares if he hits a bong?!

    how many people in the world smoke pot?
    billions?!
    yea billions..

    who gives a rats ass if a famous person does?
    there are hella celebrities who admit to smokin trees
    and none of them get shit for it…
    so who cares if he smokes?

    ganja is good for you.
    everyone needs to pick up the habit.

    fuck people are so god damn retarded now a days.

  23. Kldwadwada

    Michael Phelps is a badass. I think its sick that he smokes weed, everybody smokes weed! If you don’t your a square. Keep on hittin that bong Michael! Just don’t get caught haha.

  24. Ralph

    oh come on! let´s not be so hypocrit!!!!!! he´s just stupid 4 being apologising

  25. Brittney Scott

    I am a big fan of Michael Phelps and using his posters for promoting anti drug promotional campaigns.

  26. robert

    i personally think that his winning should not be frowned upon just cause he blazes. shit in my opinion i think he should get an extra award for just being upfront with it, and admitting he smoked, its pot people. its not crack or meth, its freaking pot. give him his medals back :) and pass that shit Phelps!

  27. Martin

    Give him a break, he made a mistake, big deal. Not like it’s hurting anyone but himself

  28. james

    you put it down homes

  29. james

    you put it down homes!!!! 420

  30. BS

    What a load of shit. Just more of our government trying to control every aspect of our life. Who cares if he smokes weed. How many deaths does weed cause every year compared to the alcohol to which we are so sorely addicted? The government is an epic fail, the war on drugs is an epic fail, and if you wanna talk shit about how phelps smokes weed, then your an epic fail too. The dude won 8 gold medals in the olympics, and he smokes weed. I think alot of anti-marijuana clowns looked at this and freaked. Gos to show that people can smoke weed and still excel in many aspects. Im not gonna say that hes my hero because I dont even know the guy. I know that if I was in his shoes and they started all this bullshit, I sure as hell wouldnt be apologizing because I took a bong hit. Id be like “Yea I smoke weed, so what, I won eight gold medals”. Our constitution says we have the right to be secure in our persons. That right is diminishing.

  31. Michael Phelps is an eceptionaly talented athelete. Phelps smoking a glass pipe should say something negative about the drug laws and not about the man. If you can achieve what Phelps did in the Olympics while high then we should reconsider why we choose to make getting high illegal. Phelps personifies a strong work ethic and a desire to win. Michael earned his wealth unlike the wall street barons and phony politicians. It is our choice to accept the drug war or to rally against it. The war on drugs is a war on the American people, I think this incident is a good example of that idea.

    Of course he was egotistical when he won? He won 8 god damn gold medals and is only 23 years old? If that was me I would be cocky as hell too. Shoot let him smoke pot why does that matter? It’s pot not some real drug.

  33. guest

    Anyone who says they dont like michael phelps is gay. He fuckin regulates anyone in any country at swimming, gets any chick he wants, is super fucking rich, and takes bongies. What other lifestyle would you want. That apology was all fake. Its just to make the loosers that think he is a bad person shut up.
