Celebrity Big Brother 2012: Julian Clary receives homophobic abuse and threats on Twitter

New article for Unreality TV

Julian Clary is having a hard time in the Celebrity Big Brother house but thankfully he isn’t aware of the nasty homophobic comments that have been made in the last few days, after he has been opening up about his personal life on the outside.

The most spiteful remarks were aimed at his camp personality and his penchant for wearing make up, with people claiming that they are repulsed by him wearing make up, and don’t understand “what he is”. Words like “freak”, “faggot”, “arse bandit” and the nickname “Julian Scary” and “fairy Clary” are being used and for some strange reason even girls claim on Twitter that they are scared of the poor man because he is gay and call him a “creep” and “weirdo”.

Some young viewers have been joking about their parents hating Julian and the “funny” homophobic remarks they make. It is shocking to see that people have still such a hatred for someone just because they are gay. People keep saying that homophobia isn’t as bad as it used to be, think again.

What is the most worrying that some of the comments are actual death threats with people calling out on Twitter for the camp comic to be shot. Why? Because he is “too gay”.

Others say that despite him being on BB he’ll never have his own show again as he is “too gay” for this day and age. That there is no way anyone would ever touched him (paraphrasing from very offensive statements).

It seems that just because he is openly out nothing is off limits, with extremely homophobic remarks filtering through his time line more and more. Even Big Brother themselves are guilty of it by making jokes of Julian and his “dog’s backsides” during yesterdays pub quiz. Julian looked understandably shocked.

Perhaps other camp stars such as Alan Carr and David Walliams should join forces to stand up for their comic brother? Because this is just too horrible.

  1. I have to admit i haven’t read any of the negative comments about Julian, I can put it down to a few things, simple jealousy, ignorance and an incredible lack of intelligence. As for wearing makeup, o m g get on with your own life, I’m a great beleiver in that if you haven’t got anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all. It seems the silence would be deafening, I love the makeup and the fun and flamboyance, those who dont are obviously so threatened by Julians superior intellect that they have to lash out with pathetic garbage, in the end they will be seen to be the half brained intolerant biggots who are determined to live in the 19th century. Not happy with that they try to drag others back there with them. Their stupidity knows no bounds as they will surely take this as a compliment.
