    Default Is he a homophobe?, or was he just having a bad night?

    Emmerdale actor Adam Thomas has issued an apology after allegedly insulting a gay fan at a Mc Donalds in Leeds.

    Thomas, who plays Adam Barton on the ITV soap, allegedly called Rickey Platts “gay boy” and according to Platts, began "hopping up and down like a madman" and called him and a friend, who was dressed in drag, "queers".

    Thomas’ most recent storyline on the soap saw him supporting best friend Aaron Livesy (played by Danny Miller) through a turbulent coming-out process.

    In a statement, he said: "I deeply apologise for my actions and I am horrified to realise that I have caused offence."


    Is he homophobic or is he just sorry because he got caught?

    Probably because he got caught, most people are sorry when they get caught not before.

    It depends reallly. I mean he could have been having a bad day himself and just vented with an easy target. I mean we can all say stuff in the heat of the moment. One incident dosnt make you homophobic.

    Still though he says he is horrified that he caused offence ha ha did ye think they were joining nin and encouragingn him?

    When men are homophobic, they are often in a rage about the negative reflection of themselves (camp men), why do you think this is a common trait when Str8 men lash out verbally or physically @ gay men?

    Otherwise why would you care?

    Because soem are just arseholes. I mean I hate the whole campness thing (read my campness thread which seems to have come back) Nothing against homosexuals I just hate the campness thing.

    Anyway back on topic, you dont know how he was rasied, I mean his whole family could hate gays and that could have been in built in him. So he may not know anybetter, or seconbdly his family could be devout Christians who hate gays and etc etc

    Or he could just be a prick who hates gays

    Quite possibley. The great debate continues. All I am saying is that it is hard to work out why he did it. Is he homophobic, was his upbringing in that kind of mindset? Are his firnds homophobes?

    Or maybe his is just a prick.
    PS his real life brother is in Corrie and his real brothers on screen brother is also gay. Maybe the family are just sick of being associated with gays.

    Actually maybe he was constantly being called a 'fag lover' over the episodes and was just lashing out himself who knows
