NBC’s coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics came under fire Monday when former Olympiad-turned-sports journo Christian Cooper asked the questions to bring bronze medalist Bode Miller to tears.

An Alpine skier, Miller had just won his Olympic medal in the men’s super-G at Sochi when Cooper began her interview. Already emotional over the win and more than likely overwhelmed with the thought of his deceased brother, Miller was pushed over the edge and brought to tears by Cooper’s questions about Chelone Miller.

Ethical? We’re not sure. Insensitive? Pretty much. Either way, Twitter is definitely not happy with Cooper or NBC.

Many have been making note of Miller’s change in character.

But most have been bashing Cooper’s interviewing tactics.



Another was quick enough to make an important database update.

While Miller sees it differently.
