Hollywood actress Kaley Cuoco was among those to be outraged by the behavior of a coach at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.
A German coach was dismissed from the Tokyo Games earlier this month when she made contact with a horse in competition. Kim Raisner punched Saint Boy, ridden by Germany’s Annika Schleu, during the Women’s Modern Pentathlon.
“Her actions were deemed to be in violation of the UIPM Competition Rules, which are applied to all recognized Modern Pentathlon competitions including the Olympic Games,” the executive board said.
Cuoco, who’s involved in the horse riding world, had a blunt message for the Olympics coach.
“I feel it’s my duty and heart to comment on this disgrace…This is not Olympic show jumping. This is a disgusting classless abusive representation of our sport in so many ways. This team should be ashamed of themselves. You and your team did not do your country proud or this sport. You make us look bad. Shame on you and godspeed to any animal that comes in contact with you.”
Cuoco is married to equestrian Karl Cook and often rides horses.
Cuoco wasn’t done.
“I’ll buy that horse outright and show it the life (it) should have. Name your price,” she wrote on Instagram.
The coach was given a “black card,” disqualifying her from the Summer Games.
