U.S. Olympic boxer Terrell Gausha is so disgusted over the George Zimmerman verdict … he’s vowing to never sport the red, white and blue again.
Gausha — who boxed in the 2012 London Summer Games — started wearing the American flag on his boxing trunks after his Olympic run … but tells TMZ he’s done with that now in the wake of Zimmerman’s acquittal in the killing of Trayvon Martin.
Terrell adds, “How can I wear my stars and stripes proudly in a country where they make a big deal out of Mike Vick fighting dogs; but not a young innocent black male’s life.”
Gausha added, “When I represented my country in the Olympics I was proud to wear my flag. I even wore it on my head on the way to the ring. What happened this weekend was a slap in the face.”
Gausha has turned pro — so he’s not eligible for the U.S. team in 2016 — but doesn’t sound like he’s interested … telling us he refuses to rep a “nation with so much racism and hatred.”
