On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, Tyrus from “Gutfeld!” and Fox Nation explained what advice he would give “woke athletes” in the Olympics if they don’t support the United States.

“But when you go to the Olympics, it’s us against them. Ninety percent of the athletes from other countries look to us like I’m trying to get there. My thing is who’s going to be the first ‘woke’ to defect? You want to send a message? Instead of turning your back on the flag, defect! I’m defecting to Russia? Nope! We’re still the beacon, people still want to be here. Hence why no one’s defecting. You can defect to Japan right now!”
