Shawn Mendes has faced a lot of rumors as a popular celebrity. Dating rumors surrounded him and Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello. Added to that, some also questioned his sexuality. The “Stitches” singer decided to shut down those rumors and claimed that he isn’t gay.
According to J-14 Magazine, Shawn noticed that people speculated about his sexuality on Youtube comments. The singer, who denied such claims, took to Snapchat to end the rumors. He made it clear that there shouldn’t be a problem if he were gay or not.
“So I don’t usually do this or bring up problems, but I was on YouTube just watching some of my interviews and I was going down the comments and noticed a lot of people were saying I gave them a ‘gay vibe.’ First of all, I’m not gay. Second of all, it shouldn’t made a difference if I was or if I wasn’t.”
“Now I know 99% of you guys aren’t making assumptions like this but this is for the 1% of you that are. I just want you guys before you judge someone on the way they speak or act to think, I want you guys to think ‘hey, maybe I shouldn’t be judging someone’ or ‘wait it actually doesn’t even matter.’ They can do or be or feel however they want to feel.”
“Now I’m not frustrated because people were saying that I was gay at all, I have no problem with that ’cause it wouldn’t make a difference to me. I’m frustrated because in this day and age people have the audacity to write online that I’m gay as if it were a bad thing. That’s all I really have to say about that. I just wish that 1% of people would grow up. I love you guys.”
