US skateboarder Nyjah Huston, who’s representing the United States in the upcoming Olympic Games in Tokyo, says the infamous cardboard beds being used by athletes this year are “hard” and “uncomfortable.”

Huston shared a video from inside his room at Olympic Village on Monday night after rumors were debunked about the beds being anti-sex because they’re made out of cardboard.

In a video on his Instagram story, Huston said rumors about the bed being anti-sex aren’t the issue.

“The only problem I see is that me and the boys got a hard, uncomfortable bed to sleep on,” he said. “We need good sleep and me and the homies here, we’re not worried about hooking up with chicks. We’re at the f—ing Olympics to focus and beast up. That’s what we’re here for.”

Irish gymnast Rhys McClenaghan and US volleyball athletes Erik Shoji and Taylor Sander debunked theories about the beds being anti-sex and not sturdy in videos over the last several days. Videos show the athletes jumping on the beds to ensure they stay in place.

“In today’s episode of fake news at the Olympic Games, the beds are meant to be anti-sex: They’re made out of cardboard, yes, but apparently they’re meant to break at any sudden movements. It’s fake, fake news!” McClenaghan said in his video.
