Watch: Gold Medalist Shaun White Drags American Flag

Snowboarder Shaun White apparently can’t catch a break.

After his gold medal victory in the men’s halfpipe, cameras caught White dragging the American flag.

“I remember being handed the flag but I was trying to put my gloves on and hold the flag and get board,” White said. “Honestly, if there was anything, I definitely didn’t mean any disrespect.”

Watch the last 40 seconds of the video — was this an honest mistake?
