Michael Phelps arrived back in the states on Wednesday and was unknowingly greeted but the peeps at Good Morning Arizona at the airport, who were looking for a live interview. That's when Phelps wasn't having it. This is awkward...



Leave the guy alone.

Bull shite. Guy was a dick. People just doing their jobs. Oh the fricking horror, giving a quick answers after landing back home! He should be embarrased

He acknowledged as much and offered to do an interview when they contact his agent. Regardless, it was BS this news station chose to attempt an unannounced live interview directly after a long flight. At least have the courtesy to tape it or delay feed during an ambush interview.

If I just got off a 10 hour flight with an infant I'd murder the first person to try and put me on live tv. What news outlet does this bush league shit?

What would have been funny is if they would have asked him about the Ryan Lochte situation.

After what happened with his teammates, I would have left Rio too.

MIchael handled this situation very well. The reporter was also doing job, but MIchael was sensitive to the reporter's obligations while also being a leader for his family. Good on him.

If I had a newborn and was done competing I would leave too. Nothing wrong with that.

Not doing the interview is one thing. Long trip, tired, I get it. The real douche move here is not staying in Rio to support your USA team mates still competing. Frick it, my events over, I'm leaving. Just not cool Michael.

He wanted to get out of Brazil before Lochte's ignorant arse got him detained.

In three weeks no one is going to interview in the airport. Just take three minutes answer a few questions and then go home.

He must have been drunk again because he doesn't seem mellow enough to be high on dope again.

Phelps handled that quite well IMHO.

Dude can't even get off the plane without being mobbed by some douches from a local tv station.

That was like a reporter and a cameraman. Not a mob

I agree with him. Give the guy some space. He is probably jet lagged and has a baby and a tired wife.

No, he has no wife, he's a piece of trash so he has a baby momma
