Nash Grier, the biggest Vine star in the world (with 8.7 million followers), posted a Vine in April featuring a snippet from a commercial about HIV. He then screams “FAG!” He’s since removed the offensive video, but today Tyler Oakley got his hands on it and reposted it, saying “Promoting a false stereotype that HIV only affects gays to his millions of teen fans is extremely dangerous.” Watch the vine below and decide for yourself: normal 16-year-old behavior or is he just a hateful brat?

One would hope this could be a teachable moment for Nash. Unfortunately, judging from these tweets, I doubt it.
