The U.S. men's fencing team wore pink face masks in support of sexual assault victims to protest one of their own teammates, Alen Hadzic, who has been accused of sexual misconduct dating back to 2013.

Here's how you can experience zero gravity without going to space - CNN Video

Everyone from the Inspiration4 crew to Richard Branson has taken a trip on a Zero-G plane to prep for weightlessness in space. Come along with CNN's Rachel Crane to see what it's like.

Fun update: Hadzic verbally harassed his own teammates over the masks to...prove his mental stability i guess TheChristinaKim 8 years ago and being talked about now. Way too long ago. He said she said now. Bunch of soy boys. He was accused, this does not mean he is guilty of a crime. Pure harassment by his teammates.

And after the Olympic committee made it crystal clear there would be NO protesting! THROW THEM OUT! PREIOD. Why aren't they vaccinating immigrants before they cross the border and spread out through the country This is a perfect pattern- they’re representing America; Americans are tearing themselves apart culturally based on allegations of all kinds. Self-cannibalization Nation

Misconduct? Assault. Accused .. innocent until found guilty. Still bothers me, did they consult any of the USA women’s team about Hadzic’s presence? Like asking - will this adversely affect your ability to compete? Real men don’t want douche bags as teammates…

Stephen Miller (StephenM) must be crushed. Npr propaganda more important ppl to speak of but all thos millions are going to this type of bs

Accused Outstanding! Faux symbolism. Nothing more. So help me understand this better. An olympian with Team USA is accused of sexual misconduct, yet he was chosen to represent USA the Olympics. Some of his teammates are protesting by using pink face masks in support of sexual assault victims.Yet, a weed smoker was denied?

nobodies watching the Olympics npr What would have been nice is instead of a safety plan, just not let him participate tantooC Way to go Why were USA 🇺🇸 athletes allowed wear THEIR face masks, while RUSSIAN 🇷🇺 athletes WEREN’T...? Olympics TeamUSA SpecialOlympics GBNEWS mfa_russia Olympics and TeamUSA your continued support and willingness to provide resources for Rapists, predators, and male athletes breaking rules is disgusting, disturbing and disappointing!

TanaDJoseph Why mask up, they cld just b*at him up? Or publicly call him out with camera's rolling

NPR Cookie Consent and ChoicesI think we need to stop saying break through cases are rare. In Florida this doesn’t seem to be the case. Lol Rare 😂😂🤣😂

AndreaChalupa Real men wear pink! AndreaChalupa Amen Hadzic should never have been allowed to compete. So brave. It's good solidarity. No information on allegations, no details on wtf happened. He’s guilty tho.🤷🏼🙄 This is good to see, especially since Simone Biles pulled out, and is a woman who was abused. Just curious wear they found the pink masks.

Part of how the culture of silence and complicity around sexual assault changes is other men holding their peers accountable in public spaces 🤴🏻🤴🏿🤴🏿We see you and appreciate you People willing to call out those in their own circles are the ones most likely to make a difference. This applies to friends, clubs, families, really anything where there's subconscious 'insultation' for insiders.

Nobody cares More of this please

NPR Cookie Consent and ChoicesWhy are countries sending non vaccinated athletes to a country with 25% vaccination rate to sweat all over one another during a pandemic? Pretty hard to take the Olympics seriously Quitter! sarcasm So probably a false positive. Sucks

Innocent until proven woke (PS he was already cleared) Guilty until proven innocent. “They never asked me for my side of the story,' Hadzic told USA TODAY Sports. “They never asked for evidence or how I felt.' Lol We fencers are an ornery and independent lot. So, I applaud those epee fencers who wore pink and shunned a sexual predator. Good on you!

Good on them! But has he smoked weed once in the last two months, because that’ll get you kicked off TeamUSA promptly. Good for them ,but the U.S knowen as the pink pokers might get them gold! I'm so proud of these brave men for wearing a mask. Heros. So is pink the color that represents women? Stereotyping on their part.

Fans: We want to watch Athletes compete at the Olympics journalists: Here are all the gender and social causes the Athletes support

NPR Cookie Consent and ChoicesNope! Apology is hollow. Even in my most angry, excited epsisodes in my life, NEVER has even the thought of using a racial slur crossed my mind. That language is not even in my mind bc I don't embody those thoughts/beliefs. It isn't a slip of the tongue for those who do. 👏👏👏👏👏👏 eternal life Jesus best offer on table people yelling sh=t bfd

cmclymer Now that's how to be an ally! this is terrible news
