Less than a week after they were dropped by two of their sponsors for the use of racial slurs, identical twins Kierman and Deven Fagan, 18 have now been suspended by US Ski and Snowboard.

It was reported last week that the US Ski Team freeskiing brothers had been dropped by sponsors Marker, Dalbello, Völkl (MDV), and Douchebags.

U.S. Ski & Snowboard does not condone acts of violence, underage drinking, or discriminatory language or actions that criticize, ridicule or otherwise disparage another individual’s race, color, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, or age. U.S. Ski & Snowboard recently became aware of content that portrays Deven and Kiernan Fagan behaving in a way that is in violation of U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s Athlete Agreement and Code of Conduct. Effective immediately, Deven and Kiernan will be subject to a formal, indefinite suspension. Kiernan and Deven’s return to U.S. Ski & Snowboard sanctioned activities is reliant upon completing diversity and sensitivity education. U.S. Ski & Snowboard will work closely with Kiernan and Deven in the coming months to evaluate their progress and team status.

The boys’ reintroduction to the US Ski Team is dependent on them completing diversity and sensitivity education. Shortly after being dropped by their sponsors, the boys issued a video apology on Instagram.

  1. oh my god look at these douche canoes TRYING to READ a cue card! Did the word “Sincere” have too many letters in it for the guy on the left? And I love the dude on the right. Cool hair bro. “Also we may have uhhhhhhhhh, said other stupid shit maybe so uhhhhhhhhh we apologize for that too.”

  2. Ruining a kid’s skiing career over a couple things they said seems a little extreme.

    1. So is being ignorant and living a privileged life in a white bubble. Time for these boys to grow up.

Got an opinion? Let us know...
