“Now, I know 99% of you guys are not making assumptions like this. But this is just for the 1% of you that are.”

Shawn urged fans to stop pre-judging people. “I just want you guys… before you judge someone on the way they speak or act. I want you guys to think, hey – maybe I should NOT be judging someone. Or, wait! It does not even matter. They can do, or be, or feel however they want to feel.”

However, Shawn clarified that he was not upset by the gay claims, but about the “judgement” aspect of it all. “However, I am not frustrated because people are saying that I was gay, at all. I have zero problem with that. Because it would not make a difference to me.”

“I am just frustrated, because in this day and age people have the audacity to write online that I am gay as if it were a bad thing.”

“That is all I have to say about that. I just wish those 1% of people would just GROW UP. I love you guys.”
