Olympic Diver and hottie Tom Daley has dashed the hopes of thousands of gay men today as he has come out as “straight” (*gasp*) in an interview with the Sunday Mirror.
I think it’s funny when people say I’m gay… I laugh it off. Daley said.
“I’m not. But even if I was, I wouldn’t be ashamed. It wouldn’t bother me in the slightest what people thought.
“But I can understand why I have a massive gay following – I spend most of my life half naked in trunks on a diving board showing off my bare chest. I often joke I wear more to bed than I do to work. But I’m cool with my gay following. It’s great to have gay fans.”
Asked how he feels about his gay following, Daley said: “Everyone’s been so supportive. [Attitude's voters] are the people cheering me on during the Olympics, these are the people that give me extra motivation during training. I really appreciate it.”
Since this “news” comes from the UK Sunday Mirror (via Pink News) let’s (hopefully) take this with a grain of salt and believe there is still the great gay hope.
