Justin Bieber posted a recent video on Instagram that has everyone talking — but not for the usual scandalous reasons. While messing around on a plane, Justin planted a kiss on his bodyguard Mike’s cheek while Mike was on his phone basically ignoring Justin. You can hear Mike call Justin gay as Justin smiles at the camera.
Justin could have just left it at that — two guys teasing each other. But awesomely, he made sure that his fans know that being called gay is in no way a bad thing, captioning the video: “I’m not gay but even if I was that’s not an insult.”
It might seem like a small thing JB did, but it goes a long way in stopping “gay” from being used as an insult, when it’s really just someone’s sexual orientation and not a synonym for bad or stupid. Thanks, Justin!
