MNEK has triumphantly smacked down a homophobic troll who left hate and intolerance in the comment section of one of his videos.
MNEK released the music video for his song “Tongue” earlier this month. In the video (found below), MNEK celebrates finding new love and lust with a man at a dinner party.
Of course, one person not only disagreed with the message of the video, but had to share his hateful words in the comments section on Youtube.
The anonymous troll’s comments went:
“Call me old fashioned but this is so so wrong. Look in this guy’s eyes. You can clearly see a demon is in control of this guy and is doing this gay thing so it can poison young minds,” he said. “I’ve just seen this video on MTV Hits where near enough everyone of all ages views it and this gay stuff has all become so normal. The end of times is near. Pray for forgiveness.”
But, MNEK wasn’t letting this person have his day. Instead, he posted a response on Instagram that was beautifully put.
Among many things, MNEK wrote:
“OBVIOUSLY, throughout what I’m doing, there will be people who don’t like it, don’t get it, or are just straight up uncomfortable with how gay it is. I’ve been working in this industry for a long time and have earned the right to now perform in a way that exhibits the true me.”
“If videos like mine can help a young kid come to terms with their truth, I’m doing more good in the world than a keyboard warrior – soooooo If you’re a homophobe and want to spray hate on comments etc etc. you should know that my moodboard rn is BLACK FAGGOT POP SUPERSTAR ???????? so it’s about to get eeeeeven gayer – whether ya like it or NAHHTTT. get with the program or get out!”
