The former British boy band and Celebrity Big Brother member, Lee Ryan, responded to gay claims on Twitter saying: “I don’t care if people think I’m gay, I would be proud.”
When addressing the orgies on CBB earlier in January, Ryan admitted to having sex with men before. While still on the show, the former Blue singer began dating Jasmine Waltz and continued with their relationship after the show until Waltz tweeted “#admitUgay” a week ago. Allegedly saying she caught Ryan cheating on her with a man.
Yesterday morning, Ryan used a lengthy tweet to answer any homosexual rumors:
The tweet goes on to say, “The claims that I am gay don’t faze me. I don’t care if people think I’m gay, why would I care? I would be proud. Sexuality doesn’t need to be defended or justified.
In 2014 when individual sexuality is being celebrated, it’s odd that Twitter trolls and bullies focus on sexuality in a derogatory way. We have created change as a society, a really brilliant change and to those people who have not yet caught up to 2014 (for whatever reason) please just open your minds and begin to think #equal.
Everyone is allowed to be individual.”
Waltz deleted most of her tweets directed at Ryan and his sexuality (Shocker). But I guess she was happy to finally have a reason to use this emoji:
