6 Types Of Depressing Tweets About Ian Thorpe Coming Out

Simply the worst people.

Australia’s most successful Olympian Ian Thorpe came out in a prime time televised interview on Sunday night. The five time gold medal winning swimmer was showered with love online.

Sadly, there were those that took a turn to negative town.

1. Australian radio host Joe Hildebrand channelled a lot of smart arse people in the “Oh I always knew” brigade.

After getting bombarded with replies he walked back his “joke”.

2. And “joke” was the default for some.

Olympic swimmer @IanThorpe has revealed he's gay. I'm not surprised considering he was never known for his breast stroke.

3. Those that used the “f word” and were highly offensive.

so ian thorpe is a fag... i reckon i knew before him..rather than say your gay,how bout saying you love fuckin guys

4. Like there were *a lot* of people who were so clever and “not surprised”.

Ian Thorpe comes out after denying it a gazillion times... Not a single person is surprised.

5. And then of course the people who combined “no surprise” + “f word”.

Always knew Ian Thorpe was a faggot!

6. But then there were the people who went to every crazy place at once.

I am not letting my children swim in the same pool as Ian Thorpe because I don't want them getting HIV or AIDS! #IanThorpe #GayIsWrong

The haters always gonna hate, and Ian Thorpe will always be one of Australia’s greatest ever champions.
