Fifth Harmony member Lauren Jauregui stood up for the LGBT community against homophobia in a lengthy Twitter conversation on Monday.

Jauregui came out as bisexual in 2016 and ever since has been vocal about her support for the LGBT community including penning an open letter to President Donald Trump.

“I am a bisexual Cuban-American woman and I am so proud of it,” Jauregui wrote. 

On Monday, Jauregui shared a tweet of someone asking what people would do if their son came out as gay. Answers ranged from having him raped by two women to “I’ll kill him.” One user commented “This is why we commit suicide.”

“This is such a disgusting display of toxic masculinity & a deep ignorance of the expression of human sexuality. It is a spectrum that has no shame. It will be painful but it will lead you to your true family. Anyone who can wish this on something they created is deeply troubled,” Jauregui tweeted.

Her response sparked a chain of tweets supporting the LGBT community.
