And you'd have been better off not even mentioning it here to be honest, even if you haven't explictly stated what the rumour is. It's just more fanning of the flames.
I was tempted earlier today to make reference to some of the rumours being circulated, particularly a certain YouTube video, only because it has annoyed me so much by presenting unfounded statements as fact and including words like “predatory” and “impressionable”. All I really want to say on the subject is that at no point did Phillip deny having had same-sex encounters or a same-sex relationship - all he said was that he wasn’t currently having such a relationship or looking for one. He did come across as totally genuine when he said he was not under pressure to come out. I didn’t pick up on any animosity from Eamonn and Ruth either.
Whatever the whole truth may be, it’s sickening when people are so quick to think the worst and allow themselves to be influenced by such venomous click-bait.
