During a recent segment on the latest episode of an Australian TV show called Now and Then, where Aussie comedians from four different generations talk about and debate which generation is the best, our favorite pop twink icon came up in conversation when the topic of "which generation of Aussies were the hottest?" was discussed, reports Q News. Several Australian comedians and media personalities were then shown a (gorgeous, btw) portrait of Troye and asked to react to him...and the results lowkey reeked of homophobia and femmephobia, both things we still HATE to see in 2021.
"Yeah, I can’t say that I find him hot," a radio host named Merrick Watts said about the 26-year-old.
Other people on the show went on to use words like "weak" and "wussy" to describe the "Take Yourself Home" singer, with one person going so far as to say that he "looks like Miley Cyrus" (as if that's supposed to be some kind of insult or something).
Troye shared the excruciatingly embarrassing clip on his Twitter account, with the caption "draggedt to filth."
Luckily, Troye seems to be taking the whole thing in stride and didn't seem to be all that bothered by it.
"Wussy boys for life," he wrote in a follow-up tweet in response.
"Also Miley is so hot so suck my tiddies," he said in another.
also Miley is so hot so suck my tiddies

While Troye didn't seem to be bothered by any of the weird, backhanded comments made about him on TV, his loyal fanbase rightfully defended him.

It's still being kinda surprising how normalized is for ppl acting offensively against others and hiding behind a "it's my opinion" 1if you don't want to look like an asshole,don't be. You're spreading your "opinions" towards a large audience,isit2hard to be a little respectful?

What makes people think they have the right to publically disrespect others? Do they think it will make them feel better about themselves? Very mean spirited. No class at all. You are undeniably beautiful Troye. Love you and your music.

Word to the wise: don't come for Troye!
