Nash Grier

Vine Star

Drops LOUD Homophobic Slur

7/8/2014 7:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nash Grier Homophobic Slur
Nash Grier -- the most followed person on Vine -- billowed out a homophobic slur so loud and angry it is truly shocking.

The 16-year-old posted the video in April -- then quickly deleted it.  It features a snippet from a TV commercial about HIV.  Grier clearly took issue with the message.

The reason it just surfaced -- Tyler Oakley, another social media star, got his hands on it and was appalled enough to blast it out.

Grier has since taken to Twitter to apologize.

Wait a sec? Where is the slur? How do we know this guy isn't gay himself? You guys take a "yes it is" 3 words that could mean one thing or another and could destroy this kids life. He is 16, I know you are old Harvey but try to remember all the stupid things you did at that age before you grew up and created a site that bullies people you don't like....

Obviously, he's an idiot. But I don't know why this is front page news. Why does TMZ feel the need to attempt to shame anyone who says ***? Is it that bad?

Also, it's not homophobic. Phobic means "afraid of". If he were afraid of ***s, he wouldn't be shouting the word on Vine.
