Michael Phelps on friends and fans

If you haven't heard by now, Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps is in town for the Ultra Swim at the Mecklenburg Aquatic Center. During a press conference Thursday, he briefly addressed the infamous bong photo that surfaced in February.

"It was bad judgment and a very stupid mistake," he said. "I've already learned from it. You have to be aware of who your real friends are, who's around you for you, not for what you've done."

After the press conference, Phelps visited the Levine's Children's Hospital where fans told the Charlotte Observer they didn't care about the bong photo.

Do you think the media hyped the incident?
