Gus Kenworthy Asks: 'I'm a Twink?' Kathy Griffin Responds

Thursday Apr 5, 2018

Twinks, twunks, bears, and otters oh my!

The gay community has a long history with slang terms that refer to body type and Olympic free skier Gus Kenworthy is questioning Out magazine's description of him.

The out athlete retweeted a message from the publication about the May cover story in which Kenworthy and fellow Olympian Adam Rippon interviewed each other for Out.

"@Adaripp and @guskenworthy aren't just two twinks looking for the next camera - they are role models taking aim at inequality," the tweet reads. "Our favorite Olympians talk friendship, hate mail, and that kiss."

In his response, Kenworthy simply asked, "I'm a twink?"

But leave it to Kathy Griffin to swoop in with a hilarious answer.

"No...I'm a twink...I think you're a cub or daddy af?" she responded to Kenworthy.

"Mom! You're embarrassing me infront of my friends...," Kenworthy wrote back.

"Mom? If I have one egg left I'm going to be so fucking pissed. Is your mom dating a man 18 years younger than her? I certainly am....." Griffin wrote.
