HATERS GONNA HATE

Gus Kenworthy Shuts Down Homophobic Twitter Troll With Olympic Form

Screen Shot 2015-10-28 at 9.37.52 AMSince revealing he’s gay last week, Olympian dreamboat Gus Kenworthy has felt the wave of support that accompanies a high-profile coming out in 2015 — messages poured in congratulating his self-served eviction from the closet.

But while it’s a marvelous thing that there is so much support out there in the world these days, it’s the internet after all, and trolls are to be expected.

Like one Prexton Vice (aka @MmmPrexton), who tried to throw a wrench in Gus’ good news with an age-old (read: tired) question — who’s the woman in the relationship?

He posted his eye-rolling query on Twitter:

But Gus wasn’t having it. He fired back with the perfect response:

Elaborating on his decision to come out last week, the 24-year-old said, “Part of the reason I had such a difficult time as a kid was that I didn’t know anyone in my position and didn’t have someone to look up to, who’s footsteps I could follow in.

“I hope to be that person for a younger generation, to model honesty and transparency and to show people that there’s nothing cooler than being yourself and embracing the things that make you unique.”

He’s off to a great start.
