Shawn also wanted to make it clear that his confession wasn’t targeted towards all of his fans, just the ones who were judging him based on what they thought his sexuality was.

“Now I know 99% of you guys aren’t making assumptions like this but this is for the 1% of you that are. I just want you guys before you judge someone on the way they speak or act to think, I want you guys to think ‘hey, maybe I shouldn’t be judging someone’ or ‘wait it actually doesn’t even matter.’ They can do or be or feel however they want to feel,” he said in a defensive tone.

Shawn Mendes also wished that people would stop attacking one’s sexuality in this modern age and just “grow up”. His anger seemed to have stemmed from the fact that people were treating homosexuality as an insult, reports MTV News.

“Now I’m not frustrated because people were saying that I was gay at all, I have no problem with that ‘cause it wouldn’t make a difference to me. I’m frustrated because in this day and age people have the audacity to…write online that I’m gay as if it were a bad thing. That’s all I really have to say about that,” he said.
