DETROIT (97.1 THE TICKET) – According to Buzzfeed French President François Hollande will not attend the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, the European nation’s foreign minister said Sunday, according to Europe 1 radio.

“There are no plans to attend,” Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told the station. “Top French officials have no plans to be there.”

So it appears that the French president is following the lead of the German president who recently bailed out of the ceremonial attendance at the Sochi Winter Olympics.

The controversy reportedly stems around the anti-gay and lesbian stance that Russia takes.

Should President Obama follow suit?
