Simply the worst people.

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.

Good on Thorpey for coming out as gay. Although if he really wanted to shock people he should've said that he was straight. #IanThorpe

After getting bombarded with replies he walked back his "joke".

In all seriousness, Ian Thorpe coming out might actually be the biggest breakthrough for gay acceptance Australia has ever seen. #IanThorpe

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.

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

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