These were the comments under a photoset I saw of homophobic tweets made by Nash Grier over a year ago…
You know what? I am disgusted, repulsed, and pissed off. No, not at Nash, but at these two tumblr users, and anyone who makes comments like these, or reblogs them.
Nash Grier, and anyone else for that matter, is allowed to have his opinions, no matter how shitty they are, but for you to say that you want him to die, is disgusting and outrageous.
By doing that, you are promoting hate, bullying, and suicide, which is much worse than what he was saying.
You are saying that just because he thinks and acts the that way he does that it means he doesn’t deserve to live, and you have absolutely no place to say something like that.
That’s on top of the fact that it’s extremely hypocritical.
You guys have such double standards. You will go around protecting each other from anon hate and give heart warming support messages, but the moment someone expresses a conservative opinion, you will flare up and become the exact same enemy you just fought against, shooting death threats and hate right at them. You go telling your friends that it’s okay to have imperfections, but when someone’s imperfections don’t match yours you’ll just go and put on your riot gear and try and start a war.
Hate doesn’t solve hate.
I’m gay. Nash Grier’s comments were highly offensive. They were rude. They were hurtful. But to say things like “he should die” or “he’s a disgusting little fuck” to people like him just double the amount of hate in this world.
Don’t think that just because you are on the right side of the battle it makes you any more moral, when the blades you are throwing are just as sharp.
