Shawn Mendes comments again in an interview with The Guardian on the rumours about his sexuality. «For me it’s hurtful», he says. «I get mad when people assume things about me because I imagine the people who don’t have the support system I have and how that must affect them».
(In late 2017 he posted an emotional Snapchat story: «First of all, I’m not gay. Second of all, it shouldn’t make a difference if I was or wasn’t») He sighs and says: «That was why I was so angry, and you can see I still get riled up, because I don’t think people understand that when you come at me about something that’s stupid you hurt so many other people. They might not be speaking, but they’re listening».
If it doesn’t make any difference, so why are Shawn Mendes always commenting on these gay rumours ? Would it hurt, if the rumours was that he was straight ? Certainly not! So there are a difference for you Shawn!
Shawn Mendes should spend 1 day as young LGBTQ person and endure what a young LGBTQ person have to go through – then we can take the discussion about hurtful !
