Nash Grier Kisses Gay Fan After Being Slammed For Homophobic Slur: PHOTO

Grier

No doubt in response to the fallout from his homophobic Vine that went viral, social media star Nash Grier decided to kiss a gay fan in an attempt to show he has love rather than antipathy for the gay community. The fan shared the experience on Snapchat and later on Tumblr, saying: "To all the people complaining about Nash being a homophobic who’s against gays; He willingly kissed a boy just for a snapchat story on top of apologizing twice."

What do you think of Grier's attempt to kiss and make up? 


Nash Grier, Vine's Most-Followed User, Slammed for Homophobic Slur: VIDEO

Grier

Vlogger Tyler Oakley has joined the chorus of individuals outraged by a video posted by Vine's most followed user, Nash Grier. In a Vine that went out to the sixteen-year old's 8.7 million followers, Grier shows a clip of a commercial for OraQuick, an at home oral HIV test, in which two men say, "Testing for HIV, it's not a gay thing" to which Grier then responds, "Yes it is! FAG!" Oakley was quick to call Grier out on Twitter for his incendiary and defamatory remarks: "Call me and people like me, 'fag' all you want, but spreading false information about deadly diseases is next level."

Grier quickly deleted his video but it was captured by a Vine user and spread online thereafter. Grier has a history of making homophobic remarks on social media (and then deleting them), disparaging gay rights and gay marriage as Mashable points out

A petition was circulating on Change.org seeking an apology from Grier which Grier has since issued on Twitter, saying he was "young, ignorant, stupid and in a bad place" when he posted the video:

Dr. Gary Blick, co-founder of HIV Equal said of Grier's remarks:

HIV is not just a gay thing. It’s a woman thing, it’s an African-American thing, it’s a Latino thing - it’s something that affects everyone in every community,” said Dr. Blick. “It’s time that our youth here in the U.S. wake up and realize that HIV doesn’t discriminate - and neither should they! Even though MSM (men who have sex with men) are the greatest at risk for contracting HIV, so are youth aged 13-23."

News: Russia, Aurora Borealis, Gay Pride In The Muslim World, Gay Marriage

RoadRussia's anti-gay law one year out: "Only a few people were fined throughout the year and this might not seem to be much of a problem," Lokshina said. "But the fines are not what this law is about. This law is not only contrary to Russia's international obligations but has also contributed to anti-gay violence and to creating a hostile environment for LGBT people in the country. It has contributed to stigmatizing LGBT individuals as unnatural, perverse and as acceptable targets."

Vine Kiss Prankster Owned By John Stamos: WATCH

JohnStamosKissWe've seen John Stamos cuddle with Bob Saget, and we've seen his kisses auctioned off for a good cause, but now it seems like the former "Full House" hunk just genuinely loves kissing men (or at least pulling off a good prank). Vine superstar Jerome Jarre has become most famous for unexpectedly smooching other people and seeing how they react. A recent attempt, however, left the shocked Jarre with a mouthful of Stamos and a lot of unwarranted anti-gay backlash.

Gay.net reports:

Jarre posted the video to his 6.1 million followers on Vine with the tongue in cheek (pun intended) caption: “KISSPRANK BACKFIRED - CHILDHOOD RUINED - #FULLHOUSE #FULLMOUTH w/ John Stamos.”

He expected the same light, fun comments he usually gets on videos. Instead, his comment feed was littered with homophobic statements. “Gay. Unfollowed,” reads one. “God made Adam and Even not Adam and Steve,” reads another.

"I am receiving death threats now, but I would not delete this Vine for anything in the world," Jarre told Mashable in an interview.

Rather than give into the gay panic, Jarre opted to create a new video, revealing he has a "beautiful girlfriend" and then smooching fellow Vine user Nicholas Megalis. The best part? Megalis is done up in some particularly unconvincing drag.

"I'm sick of seeing kids being bullied for living their lives. Ignorance is so dangerous," Megalis told Mashable. "And as someone who makes things, it is my job to make something I actually believe in. And I believe in this. Gay, straight, alien. Doesn't mean shit. Love is love is love."
