It’s official: World travelers agree that American swimmer Ryan Lochte was a jerk.

As the Olympics concluded, folks departing Rio de Janeiro had one last chance to relate their feelings about the games on a marker board set up at the airport. Many used the space to express regret over Lochte’s behavior. “Sorry about Ryan Lochte” was perhaps the most popular message.
