Big Brother: Social Media Outrage*

Big Brother housemates Christopher and Mark have found themselves in the firing line of vicious haters with more malice than sense.

The two reality stars were caught on camera kissing in the fishbowl show over the weekend as their friendship appears to be blossoming into romance.

While their coy affections seem to be genuine rather than vacuous showmance, they have been victimised over their sexual preference for one another.

For some reason viewers are content with seeing full intercourse between heterosexual couple Kimberly and Steven, yet not a gay kiss.

And when the initial article of their tonsil tennis was posted on our Daily Star Facebook page, vile comments had to be deleted in a bid to prevent hateful trolling...

One twisted individual even likened same-sex relationships to "paedophiles in disguise from the devil's workshop"...

Fortunately, however, there were those in support of the BB stars, who ridiculed the prejudicial slurs as nonsense.

One quipped: "Wow two gay men kiss… Never!!!!"

Meanwhile, we hope all three of the new roomies entering the house this evening in a shake-up are gay just to annoy the haters.

Or better yet, maybe Big Brother can do an all-gay special next season.

Respec'! A great piece for the Star.

But as ever, if a TV show is watched by millions the comments of a few twats on Twitter or Facebook don't really tell us much. 

* 'Social media outrage' is a contradiction in terms, shirley?
