Adam Rippon offers up another powerful message on Twitter

Adam Rippon returns to the ice Saturday in the men's singles free skate.

U.S. Figure skater Adam Rippon took to Twitter again Wednesday and urged his followers to be true to themselves, describing it as a “liberating thing whether you are gay or not.”.

“FUN FACT: Being true to who you are and not giving a (expletive) about what others think about you is an awesome and liberating thing whether you are gay or not,” Rippon wrote. “Sometimes we the gays need to be reminded more often but, LIKE, EVERYONE SHOULD TRY IT, FOR REAL. JUST DO IT.”.

Rippon, who helped the United States win a bronze medal in the Olympic figure skating team competition in Pyeongchang earlier this week, and Gus Kenworthy are believed to be the country’s first openly gay Winter Olympians.

Rippon made headlines last month for his comments about Vice President Mike Pence leading up to the Games. Pence later offered to meet with the 28-year-old, but Rippon declined the invitation.

The 2016 U.S. National champion competes in the men’s singles free program Saturday.
