Teen Vine Star w/ 8.7 Million Followers Links 'Fags' To Spread Of HIV
16-year-old Vine star Nash Grier (who has a whopping 8.7 million followers!) posted a disturbing Vine video to his presumably impressionable fans linking "fags" to HIV.
Following major backlash, Grier removed the video, but not before YouTube superstar Tyler Oakley reposted it with his own important message for the teen vlogger:
Call me and people like me, 'fag' all you want, but spreading false information about deadly diseases is next level. https://t.co/W6X9MUrgUK

There's a lot of weird anger in that video, right?
For his part, Nash has since apologized, posting on Twitter:

Perhaps this will be a teachable moment?
Kudos to Tyler for speaking out. What's your reaction to Nash's video and his subsequent apology, Instincters?
