“Something has just been brought to my attention that I am not proud of,” he said. “When I was 13, I used ‘f*g’ in two tweets. It is a vile and derogatory word [and] I am disgusted by this. This does not represent me or my community and I hope my actions since then show that.”
He added that he will be doing a charity stream on October 5 to cement his support for the LGBTQ+ community, as well as making a personal donation to Stonewall, an LGBTQ+ rights charity in the UK.
