Father of Maybelline's first male model completely shuts down homophobic tweet

It is 2017, how are these things still happening?

On 6th January, make-up giants Maybelline announced that they had recruited their first-ever male model. A huge moment in the progression of acceptance of the LGBT community.

That male model's name is Manny Gutierrez, he is a popular YouTuber and social media personality. He is also gay and is well known for wearing make-up in his videos.

It seems that some people found his appointment as the first male model of a major make-up brand a little bit harder to comprehend. People like Matt Walsh, a blogger who does not believe in transgenderism:

He tweeted out a picture of Manny, claiming that the reason Mr Gutierrez wore make-up was because his father wasn't around to raise him.

It is not the only tweet Mr Walsh has sent out in this vein, he even wrote a whole blog post about the subject.

Well, when Manny Sr. saw Mr Walsh's homophobic tweet, he felt he needed to respond. Unfortunately, he doesn't have twitter so he decided to let his son pass on the message:

This is brilliant.

Mr Walsh's views need to be flushed out. Thankfully there has been a lot of progress in the last few years, but there is still a long way to go.

But Manny Gutierrez Snr. we salute you. Dad of the year?
