Niall Horan Has Been Named ‘LGBTQ King’ For a Pretty Ridiculous Reason

Megan Cassidy

A tweet claiming Niall Horan is an “LGBTQ King” is going viral for all the wrong reasons today.

Massively popular Britney Spears fan forum, Breathe Heavy, shared a picture on Twitter of Niall holding hands with a fan, Garrett, and wrote:

‘Our newly-crowned LGBTQ king is for holding a gay fan’s hand during a M&G. We salute you —>’

However, fans (rightly) found the suggestion that it is *out of the ordinary* to be respectful and kind to a member of the LGTBQ community… well… pretty insulting.

Aside from all the LGBTQ King nonsense, the story behind the original picture is actually very sweet.

Garrett, who is a Niall Horan superfan, explained on Twitter that Niall’s lyrics helped him come out to his parents, so it was a massive moment for him to meet the singer in person.

Frankly, I wish I loved anything as much as Garrett loves Niall.
