A teenager saying something stupid doesn’t normally make the news, but normally 16-year-olds don’t have an audience of 8.7 million people.

One of the most popular users of the six-second video sharing website Vine, Nash Grier has more followers than celebrities like Harry Styles (2.7 million) and Justin Bieber (1.7 million).

Grier has refused to comment on the homophobic video. Instead, he has only promoted his new videos which make fun of his ‘haters’.

The short video has seen some of his fans click ‘unfollow’, with several critical tweets:
