Adam responded to haters on his Instagram stories — and he ATE THEM UP:

"Oli and I had a fun night out! Rare to encounter paps in WEHO — so retro. Haha. Lifts my spirits to see support in the comments," Adam began his effortless read. "Also appalled to see the obnoxious homophobia and ignorance plaguing people [right now]."

He continued to drag the trolls, writing, "Oli identifies as a he. he has wicked style and refuses to conform to the societal norms regarding his fashion choices. He is beautiful and brave, and daring. He's a leader, not a follower. One of the many things I love about him!"

"We are very happy together, and if the haters don't like it, we don't really give a fuck. Grow up and challenge yourself to explore tolerance. We are all just trying to stay happy and fulfilled with our lives. Chances are, if you're busy trolling us online, you're miserable in your own life and can't deal w your issues," Adam finished.

Oliver also addressed the hateful comments on his Instagram stories:

"Also, let's just highlight how disgusting people are in comments sections," Oliver wrote. "And then we can all ask ourselves why people in the spotlight end their life too soon, are on antidepressants, having low self-esteem, dieting, etc. Kindness never killed anyone!"

"Also, I'm not dressing like a girl, nor do I identify as a girl. I identify as a man, I just happen to have great legs I wanna show and love makeup! I'm also a man who can't fit a lot of menswear because I'm too small, AND menswear are sooooo boring often."

Oliver finished with a message of positivity, writing, "AND this is not encouragement to go and fight back for me in the comment section. We don't need to fuel flames or spread more negativity. Let's just live our lives how [it] makes us happy and let the bigots be bigots. X Oli"
