Shaun White Questioned About Past Sexual Harassment Allegations: 'I've Grown as a Person Over the Years'

Shaun White was questioned about his former sexual harassment allegations during an interview on the Today show after his third gold medal win at the 2018 Olympics last night.

“I’ve grown as a person over the years,” Shaun said. “I definitely feel like I’m a much more changed person than I was when I was younger. I’m proud of who I am today.”

In addition, Shaun apologized for referring to the allegations as “gossip” during a post-game press conference.

“I’m truly sorry that I chose the word ‘gossip.’ It was a poor choice of words to describe such a sensitive subject in the world today,” Shaun said. “I was so overwhelmed with just wanting to talk about how amazing today was and share my experience,”

In a lawsuit from the former drummer in his band, Lena Zawaideh, she alleged that Shaun “forced her to watch sexually disturbing videos” and “made vulgar sexual remarks to her.” The lawsuit was settled last year.
