Tom Daley shouldn’t have made a video of 5 minutes explaining why he’s gay. He should’ve said: “Im gay. Take it or leave it.” Just 3 seconds

No! It’s not me who’s in the relationship with Tom Daley. #budgysmugglinglove

To all the homophobes out there spewing bigoted bile about Tom Daley, I laugh in your wretched little faces. You’re losing, he’s winning.
