Yoh! The way people were mourning on social media you would have thought Cedric had died. His Instagram post was flooded with comments about how "sad" it was that he was gay and how it was a "waste" of a good man.

After three days of watching the reactions to the snap, Cedric took to Twitter on Sunday to share how the experience had taught him a lot.

He also clapped back at those calling him a waste, telling them that they never stood a chance anyway.

"Gay men are being called 'waste' by some bitter women who’ve just realized they’ll never have them. As if they’d have them if they were not gay."

He said despite the backlash he would not change or stop supporting the LGBTQI+ community.

"I will never stop being an ally to the LGBTQI+ community ninyile," he said.

He said the issue was not about his sexuality, but the way people were being dragged for who they were.

"Let’s not focus on what everybody’s thoughts are about ME. This is bigger than me, this is bigger than your thoughts. This is about that one boy/girl who’s being dragged in the gutters and being burnt for who he/she is. Let the focus be on that issue and others similar to those."
