People Are Pissed That An American Olympian Is Rooting For His Canadian Wife During Olympics

28-year-old Ashton Eaton is an American who is participating in the men’s decathlon in Rio de Janeiro. Eaton won gold for the United States in London in 2012, but he’s making headlines for different reasons this year.

Yesterday, Eaton was spotted weating a Team Canada hat to support his wife, Canada’s Brianne Theisen- Eaton who is competing in the heptathlon.

After receiving some backlash on Twitter Eaton had to address the haters.

Man, people suck sometimes.
