Vine Star Jay Versace Blasted After Allegedly Outing Princeton Perez As Gay
There's some drama brewing on social media between Vine star Jay Versace and Mindless Behavior member, Princeton Perez, after the Vine sensation allegedly outed the singer as gay by exposing their private messages. Versace exposed the Twitter DM's between him and the Mindless Behavior star, which show an intense and scathing conversation between the two.
While the screenshots have since been deleted by Jay, who claims that he posted the conversations after being continuously harassed by Perez, they did show the two exchanging some harsh words with one another. The last message that Versace that was seen in the conversation allegedly said, “You’re a low down sh---y quality ass human that is full of himself. No wonder you can’t come out. You’re scared of who you really are.”
After posting the message screenshots to his Twitter page, fans of Perez came to his defense, slamming Versace for trying to out the Mindless Behavior star as gay. Even though some did agree that Perez's comments were unwarranted and crude, they defended him for the sake that Versace would be outing his sexuality to the public, as he has not publicly come out. Eventually, Versace issued an apology for posting the conversations, but also clarified what his intentions were for trying to expose the singer.
“For months now [Princeton] has been dming on private twitter accounts harassing me and all of my friends about the people I talk to and just being a plain creep,” he wrote. “I’ve warned him numerous times that if he didn’t leave me alone I was going to show the screenshots to the world and let them see for themselves. But yet he still continued to bother me and DM me from accounts. I got tired. So I posted that. That was clearly not the right way to go about it but I was so upset I didn’t think about the precautions before I made those actions. But what I can say is that my intent was not to “out” him. It was to show that he’s a bully and a stalker and also it was done out of temporary anger. I apologize to prince10 and you guys for taking it way too far. I know how hard it is to come out of the closet and I’ve been there. But also he clearly stated that he wasn’t in a closet to begin with. He never said he was straight or gay," Versace wrote in a note post on Instagram.
Hopefully these two can work out their differences. See the full conversation here.
