The Internet had a lot to say about Adam Rippon and the outfit he chose to wear to the Oscars Sunday night. Not only was he flooded with people discussing his clothes on Twitter, a number of publications ran websites about his choice, which was a black suit, bowtie and leather harness from designer Jeremy Scott.




But the out Olympic figure skater took to Twitter Monday night to defend his outfit and unsurprisingly his message went viral.

"I think fashion is all about self-expression and I chose to wear what I wore on the red carpet because I felt cool [as fuck]," Rippon wrote. "Everyone should take risks, be bold, and not give a [shit]. It's LOTS of fun. Huge thanks to my team for dressing me and make me feel like a sexy MF."

As of this writing, Rippon's tweet has earned over 3,100 retweets more than 44,000 likes.

Overall, it was a good night for Rippon, who got to meet his celebrity crush, pop star Shawn Mendes.
