Shawn Mendes isn’t gay, but there are some people who clearly really, really want him to be.

False rumours about his sexuality have been floating around since the singer’s breakthrough, and the latest “evidence” is a pretty obviously fake mocked up tweet.

“Guys my sexuality shouldn’t be anyone’s business,” the tweet “from” Shawn reads.

It then adds in contradictory fashion: “Yes, I’m gay and I’m proud.”

*rolls eyes*

As you can probably guess from the poor quality of the screengrab – no direct link, naturally – the “tweet” doesn’t exist on Twitter, and has never existed on Twitter.

It was made in Photoshop. Or probably MS Paint.

Shawn’s fans did the decent thing and hijacked the #ShawnComingOut hashtag to good effect.
