Instead of competing for Team USA at the 2016 Olympics, Dustin Johnson is…vacationing with his hot girlfriend, Paulina Gretzky? Fans are totally ripping the golfer apart for his decision, but Paulina has his back — read her angry rant to the haters here!
“Listen here you hating pieces of s*** trolls,” Paulina Gretzky, 27, wrote in an Instagram comment. “Ill say it once he didn’t work his ass off his entire life for a gold medal he achieved his MAJOR and let everyone else do what they need to do and leave my fanf***ingtastic man alone.” Keep up with the Olympics with live coverage HERE.
Dustin Johnson, 32, won the U.S. Open earlier this summer, and clearly places more importance on winning major golf tournaments over the Olympics. But many fans have slammed him for this decision, pointing out that it should be more important to represent his country at the Games rather than only focusing on individual achievements.
“This is not an easy decision for me, but my concerns about the Zika Virus cannot be ignored,” Dustin explained in a statement in July. “Paulina and I plan to have more children in the near future and I feel like it would be irresponsible to put myself, her or our family at risk.”
Golf hasn’t been played at the Olympics since 1904, but Dustin isn’t the only American skipping out: Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy have also opted to stay home instead of heading to Rio.
The U.S. Open was Dustin’s first major win, although he came in second place at the event in 2015. He and Paulina have a son, Tatum, together, who was born in January 2015. Hopefully the 32-year-old doesn’t regret this decision to skip in the future!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Paulina’s Instagram rant? Was it warranted, or totally out of line?
