Photo: Olympian Lochte, Shooter Zimmerman on GQ's "Least Influential People of 2012" List
GQ has made some interesting choices for the 2012 list of “Least Influential People”.
The half-Cuban Olympian Ryan Lochte made the list, with GQ claiming he shattered “the individual-medley-of-douchiness world record” and “managed to increase the Asthon Kutcher-ness of the London Games by 80 percent.” Ouch.
George Zimmerman, the man on trial for shooting teenager Trayvon Martin, also made the list. GQ had this to say:
There’s nothing funny about the tragic shooting death of Trayvon Martin. However, there is something morbidly comedic about a man deluding himself into thinking that his life is in danger because a black teenager walking by might assault him with a bag of Skittles. In George Zimmerman’s world, he’s a hero. Thankfully, very, very few other human beings live in George Zimmerman’s world.
Other notable appearances on the list:
- Former Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney
- First Lady Michelle Obama
- Keith Olbermann
- Tucker Carlson
- Lance Armstrong
- Hulk Hogan
- Adam Sandler
While some of the jabs at those on the list were funny, we could not help but notice the writer(s) seemed more angry than amused.
