Tonga's Pita Taufatofua Gets Oiled Up by 'Today Show' Hosts!

Pita Taufatofua, the flag-bearer for the kingdom of Tonga, gets his body oiled up by Hoda Kotb during an interview on The Today Show on Monday morning (August 8) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 32-year-old taekwondo practitioner went viral around the world after he was seen going shirtless with his body oiled up during the 2016 Rio Olympics Opening Ceremony last week.

“I was walking through the opening ceremony, and someone came up to me, they were just taking photos nonstop, and they said to me, ‘You know you’re trending on Twitter in every major country?’” he said. “Once I had a look, it had just gone everywhere.”

    Yup this is not sexual objectification at all. Now imagine if Al Rooker did this to a female athlete, feminists are going to lose their sh*t!

    This is so hypocritical. I am a feminist (as most people would be if they realized it just means equality) but the double standards here are disgusting. Treating him like an object when if genders were reversed there would be outrage.
