A British man says he has cancelled his television licence because he was sick of seeing so many gay people.

In a now-deleted tweet, Bryan Eastwood bemoaned the diversity he sees on television.

“Every fucking channel I put on is fucking gay boys,” he posted.

“Getting really pissed off with this LGBT being stuffed in our faces at every opportunity. Are there no normal people out there?”

Eastwood evidently put his money where his mouth is, later sharing a picture of a letter showing his television licence had been cancelled.

The posts were up long enough to be shared and joked about by LGBTI people on Twitter.

“Amazing how you seem to just ‘find’ these channels with gay boys on them. Anything you want to tell us?” teased one person.

“So much hate on an Easter morning when it’s all about redemption and forgiveness,” another pointed out—though, as Eastwood’s Twitter bio says he “hates all religions”, he may have been unconvinced.

One person replied to Eastwood to criticise his homophobic outburst and suggest the obvious: just changing the channel.
