Olympic Race Walker Tom Bosworth, who came out as gay in 2015, shared a photo of himself kissing his fiance on Instagram on National Coming Out Day. While the post received a slew of positive comments, many unfollowed him--presumably as a response to seeing two men kissing.

"Last night I shared this picture on Instagram for National Coming Out Day. It received a lot of love! Since then 50 people unfollow me," he said on Twitter. "I don't post romantic pictures very often and I've never hidden who I am so I don't understand why these individuals followed me in the first place!" Take that.
