Derren Brown is a British illusionist and hypnotist who’s made a name for himself by having an uncanny ability to cut through the chatter to decipher alarmingly personal details from his audience.
He also happens to be gay, a fact which one homophobic Twitter follower, @HossamAlyyy, has only just become aware of.
He fired off a series of nasty Tweets to Brown, calling him a “sick human being” and a “fuckin faggot” among other uninspired insults.
Here are the Tweets:
Well Derren fired back true to form in the best way possible.
Here’s his reply:
.@HossamAlyyy I’m very flattered you’re attracted to me (if I read between the lines correctly) but I’m not looking for a bf right now x

Hossam has deleted his original Tweets, but that hasn’t stopped people from chiming in.
“I hope you come to terms with your sexuality soon. Then you’ll stop being such an angry little child,” one user writes to him. Other colorful commentaries include, “Hahaha you pathetic littel keyboard warrior. Homophobic abuse then delete your tweets when you’re put down. COWARD!,” and the more succinct, “wanker.”
