Nash Grier originally made the terrible video back in April, before deleting it, but i has now resurfaced. The video features a clip from a HIV public service announcement, before the camera turns to Nash screaming the word ‘”f*g.”
Famous YouTube personality, Tyler Oakley is not letting Nash get away with his insensitive comments and rightfully called the star out for his extremely homophobic slur:
Call me and people like me, ‘f*g’ all you want, but spreading false information about deadly diseases is next level. https://t.co/W6X9MUrgUK

Should Nash Be Banned From Vine?
Even though Nash apologized, it’s important that he take his responsibility, as a public figure for teenagers seriously. Hopefully his apology is heartfelt, and he truly is sorry for his insensitive remarks.
Regardless, is it too late — should Nash be banned from Vine?
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Are you shocked by Nash’s comments? Should he be punished by being banned from Vine?
