U.S. sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson could miss the Tokyo Olympics due to a positive drug test and people aren’t happy about it.

On Thursday night, the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Tyler Dragon reported that Richardson was probably not going to make the Olympics after receiving a 30-day suspension for testing positive for marijuana.

Almost immediately after reports of Richardson’s positive drug test made the rounds on the Internet, Michael Phelps began trending on social media considering he was once seen smoking a bong during a college visit, and many feel wasn’t punished as harshly as Richardson currently is getting punished. It is worth noting Phelps was suspended for three months in a non-Olympic year during his marijuana scandal.
