You know what? He’s right. Saying “I’m not gay” in response to people saying you are gay is 100% not homophobic. Saying “that picture isn’t me” is 100% not homophobic.
But do you know what is homophobic? Calling a picture of two gay men having sex a “weird photo”. That’s kind of homophobic, don’t you think? He wouldn’t call a picture of a man and a woman having sex a “weird photo”. He probably wouldn’t even call a picture of two women having sex a “weird photo”. But hey, it’s a bit weird that the guy looks exactly like him so maybe that’s what he meant by weird, right? I guess that’s okay-ish.
But do you wanna know what’s not okay? Do you want to know what is 100% homophobic? Saying he would rather release pornographic images of himself to his millions of followers than have them look at that “weird photo” and think it’s him, that he would ever do that. Because now with this second tweet it’s clear that he’s upset that the other person in the photo is a man.
That’s homophobic. It’s really fucking disgusting on a lot of levels, to be honest.
