No comparison....IMO, Ashley has cut of her nose to spite her face or she bit the hand that feeds her. Sure there is no problem stating your opinion, but sometimes it comes back to bite you...Her fans should get over it and let the games begin...just saying. On that night, may the best skater win and good luck to them all.
    Another thing is she draws too much negative attention on social media by expressing too strong opinion about things. Of course you have a right to express your opinion about social issues, I do it all the time, but if your have a large group of listeners then you need to be prepared for consequences. People are going to bite you back. Lindsey Vonn, whose accomplishment to sports are in a completely different dimension comparing to Ashley's, said recently too much about politics and now she is being grilled alive. Her social reputation is done for life. Lindsey's rival, Anna Fenninger, who was universally loved everywhere on social media, started campaigning on FB about Islamic refugees and then her reputation went abruptly downhill. (downhill - that's her skills lol)

    Many here say that athletes have rights to say their opinions just like everybody else. Of course they do. But if you earn your social position with very specific accomplishments, like athletic, scientific, artistic, etc, and then you are abusing this position in other areas not related to your domain, like politics or social issues, then be prepared for a backslash. Especially in very divisive issues.
    Best advice - if you earned your position in athletics then stay in athletics. Don't cross your boundaries. Then you will be universally loved. Guaranteed.
