Bode Miller lost his brother last year. Chelone Miller died in April of 2013 from a seizure related to a brain injury. The brothers hoped to compete together in Sochi.
After his race in the Men's Super G, Miller was asked about his brother by NBC Reporter Christin Cooper. She pressed the skier about his brother until he broke down.
Watch the video.
Thousands of people are ticked off. They took to the official NBC Olympics Facebook page to express their anger at NBC and Cooper.
I appreciate everyone sticking up for me. Please be gentle w christin cooper, it was crazy emotional and not all her fault. #heatofthemoment— Bode Miller (@MillerBode) February 17, 2014
My emotions were very raw, she asked the questions that every interviewer would have, pushing is part of it, she wasnt trying to cause pain.— Bode Miller (@MillerBode) February 17, 2014
