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.

This isn't even relevant anymore. This was so long ago so why are you bringing it up now? Yes! it was wrong of him to say that but honestly lol what teenage kids haven't made a homophobic slur before? If you're offended by a 14-15 kid saying the word "***" you honestly need to check yourself. I have a lot of friends who are in the gay community who don't even know who nash is, and they said they weren't offended at all by this. And if you knew anything about nash, you would know that he is the farthest thing from a homophobe. Now please hate on me for defending him Idc

Thanks to reality TV and the internet, the word "star" has no meaning anymore (except, you know, the ones out in space). I have no idea who this kid is, nor do I give a ****. It might be time to retire old TMZ from my computer, I'm knowing who less and less of these so-called "celebrities" are. Basically I'm just wasting time reading about over-privleged assh*les who have zero impact on my life. And wasting time writing about it.

So what if he is not for gay rights!! We cannot all like everything. As long as he is not committing a crime against a person for their race, religion or sexual orientation, I could not care less. Harvey calling him homophobic and comparing it to being racist is insulting at best. You cannot make people like others because it would seem uncool or not OC, this is ridiculous!!

Wow Harvey, did you really just call a 16 year old kid homophobic? Just because he doesn't believe in your lifestyle does not make him homophobic. It is ok for people to disagree with you. In america we have this little do***ent that gives is the right to "free speech." So does that make you straight-a-phobic?
