American skier Bode Miller captured the bronze medal in Sunday's Super-G event at the Sochi Winter Olympics.

But what should have been a jubilant celebration turned to tears after NBC reporter Christin Cooper asked Miller about his late brother, Chelone.

According to the Sporting News, Chelone passed away last year to an apparent seizure.

Miller tweeted after the interview, urging his followers to go easy on Cooper for being insensitive.

What do you think — did the reporter probe a bit too much?
