In a way I can see the IOC's view, they have to crack down on this stuff or it would get out of control.
Did the IOC go too far in some instances..yes. They did some stupid stuff.
It will teach the athletes in the future they need to me more accountable for what they say on social media...just as Lochte's mom is finding out over comments on her son having only one night stands.
The problem is they are cherry-picking and publicizing petty offenses while allowing criminal enterprises masquerading as nation-states to participate.
