Australian YouTube sensation Nick Bertke aka Pogo –who made a name for himself remixing classic Disney movies into electronic dance music and has amasses over 110 million views on his channel – released a startling statement detailing his hatred of gay people:
“I’ve always had a very thorough dislike of homosexuals. I’ve never liked a grown man acting like a 12-year-old girl. I’ve always found that to be quite disgusting. And so I thought to myself, how best can I express to the world that gays are just an abomination?”
He goes on to say: “I think nothing encapsulates the sissiness of a guy quite like the word ‘faggot.’ I have a fairly robust resentment of the gay community. I don’t want to really get into this, but when there was the Orlando shooting and the guy was shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ or something I was like (pumps fist). But yeah, I’ve got to be a bit careful with that because well, you know, I don’t like gays, but I don’t want to see people getting killed in nightclubs either. But still, I mean, it’s just fantastic.”
Wow. I’ll be interested to see how this plays out. Will his fans celebrate this or will there be a swift condemnation? In today’s Upside Down world, I just don’t know anymore.
