This tweet quickly made the rounds on social media. Twitter

News of his supposed coming out soon provoked myriad responses and retweets.

The Dive In singer soon hit back at the tricksters responsible.

"Photoshop and a retweet is all people need to believe, any and everything. I feel bad for the impressionable, no minds of their own. If I'm gay then Tupac bringing me a ounce for this session wit Biggie tomorrow. No weapon. #LOVE. Last tweet was funny doe!!"
