hey so you should really take down the vine about the "troye do you want dinner?" thing. it's really fucked up and that's bullying man. the girl is like nine years old and the more I see this floating around tumblr, and vine, and facebook, and twitter; the more respect I lose for you. you're my favorite youtuber and I know you didn't mean to offend anyone. but you are and you're bullying a little kid and letting thousands of people bully her too. as a huge fan, you just let me down.

Hey Fiona,

I’m really sorry you were offended by it. I gave it some thought before i posted it, and decided that it was the way she said ‘yes’ that was funny to me. It had nothing to do with the way she looked, or her story or anything. I do genuinely think I would have made the vine using anyone as a reaction (as me - ‘Troye, do you want some dinner?’. I wasn’t asking the girl, i was asking myself, you know?) no matter how they looked. Though all that justified the vine to me in the moment, and i know (and i hope you do too!) that my intentions were not malicious at all, knowing her story and stuff, in hindsight, i think you’re absolutely right. It was insensitive and i was wrong. Again, i’m sorry! It’s been deleted off everywhere it can be.

Thanks for letting me know, means a lot to know you have my back!
