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.

We think we know what Exhibit A would be ...
