Viewers Complain That NBC Cuts Raven Saunders' Twerking Celebration Short.


Raven Saunders, a shot putter, has captured the attention of the Tokyo Olympics with her strength, inventive masks... and twerking.

The dance was performed to commemorate the American's silver medal on Saturday, and viewers loved it, though they complained that NBC cut away from the fun moment.

Can't you see a little impromptu revelry in an Olympics that lacks the energy of the crowd?

Saunders, on the other hand, saved her most meaningful gesture for last: after receiving her medal on the podium on Sunday, she defied restrictions on athlete protests by crossing her arms in an "X," which she described as "the intersection of all oppressed people meeting."
