This Vine "Star" Just P*ssed Off Millions Of People With A Six Second Video

"If Nash Grier were a TV star, he'd be fired. What happens when a big Vine star makes a homophobic video?" - Andrew Wallenstein

If you've never heard of the name Nash Grier, you're not alone. I had no idea who he was either until hearing some recent news about how this snotty little 16-year-old kid decided to make a cute joke about homosexuals needing to get tested for HIV. Oh, and then he yells "FAG!" at the end. I'm sure his parents, whom he clearly lives with, were just delighted to hear their son screaming at the top of their lungs in the other room.

Nash had actually deleted this video, but Tyler Oakley, another youtube "star" (really can't stand that term) had discovered it before it disappeared. See, Tyler Oakley is an openly gay social media "celebrity" and just like Nash, he has millions of followers as well. Tyler posted this video on his twitter and tumblr account, which then quickly blew up. Now Nash is getting the attention he was really hoping for with posting this hilarious Vine. Everyone wins!

Here's Nash's pimple-covered moment for his tween audience to enjoy.

This kids looks like a puppet.

To put it in perspective who this kid is and the amount of children he influences, he has 2.71 million Twitter followers, over 3 million youtube subscribers and over 8 million Vine followers.

Also, he has a website where you can get a classy hoodie that reads "Property of Nash Grier". What a little turd.

So really his ignorance has a pretty wide audience. And like Bieber, his followers are maybe more forgiving than the general public. So the odds of this blowing over like nothing ever happened are pretty high. Until TMZ got ahold of the story this morning. Here is some of the fan mail he's already receiving on twitter today.

Nash is taking the predictable steps and posted an apology earlier today, for which I'm sure he doesn't understand why he should, but most of these internet "stars" have a team of people behind them believe it or not. So I have no doubt that he was urged him to say something somewhat humanizing, even if it's through a tweet draft.

I think my favorite part is "I was young" because he posted the original video last April. If you make that sort of statement, especially when you think it's clever or funny, any apology that comes after I think we can safely throw in the insincere bin. 

Regardless, I really hope this is the first and LAST time I hear of this kid. These Vine "celebrities" can make up to $10,000 for product placements in their videos, so my only hope is at least those golden opportunities have just left the building because anyone this dumb doesn't deserve them.

And if you needed another reason to dislike the kid, he looks exactly like Miley Cyrus.

How do you feel about this whole mess? I'm sure some people think giving this kid more attention than he already has been given is a bad thing, but I say you made your bed, now lie in it.

Fact: High correlation between HIV and homosexuality.

What if Nash is right? i'd go with his take over Oakley's

Really? He is a kid. Who cares? Overly-sensitive America at it again. Sticks and Stones

I'm an HIV awareness activist, and this is revolting, every way disgusting. I've lost too many friends to HIV/AIDS over the years...even held their hands as they took their last breath. Let's band together and get this kid out of our lives and our minds and, most importantly, cyberspace. Yes, I'm gay, but HIV doesn't discriminate like a great many do. Anyone can be infected. GET TESTED!

HIV is serious. Jerks like this that make this kind of gross ill-informed statement really need to have the sense educated into them before they end up dead. HIV infects EVERYONE dummy, not just homosexuals.

People are not born gay. It's all made up.

So what, I lost my "top commenter" status just for defending America here on the 4th of July. I am INCONSOLABLE. Here's to falling from grace, and all the irreparable harm it has caused me.

@madmiles Then how did I know when I was 6 years old? Explain that, sir

@madmiles Homosexuality can be  caused by a number of factors. Genetics is one of them. The bigger question is, how is your comment relevant to the topic at hand?

@COHockey You're not alone.  I lost mine too.  I think 1,000 is the magic number.

AndrewST User

@COHockey Apparently I had one as well, but then it went away. I am not sure who/what thought it would be a good idea to give my ass that title to begin with.

madmiles User

@J-Noose No other explanation other than you have a weak moral stature and are a screwed up individual. Did daddy touch your bum when you were little, princess?

madmiles User

@Christopher-Cullen-102  Genetics?!?! You have got to be kidding me. Let me guess, you are one of the people who believe in gender neutrality. Do the world a favor a shut your over opinionated garbage spewing mouth.
