Gemma Collins is under fire for backing an anti-LGBT politician


Gemma Collins has caused uproar online when she showed her support to Ann Widdecombe on CBB. The post has attracted a lot of attention, but most of replies were far from positive, with many users pointing out the CBB contestant’s long history of attacking LGBT people. Many users attached gifs of people looking shocked or asking her to delete an account if she supports such a bigot. Another posted a photo of a concerned looking Jane McDonald in response. Widdecombe has already caused controversy in the Celebrity Big Brother house after a minor row over sharing a bed with trans contestant India Willoughby. The ex Conservative MP has a shocking record on gay rights issues – voting against them at every opportunity during her 23 years in parliament. She also tried to block gay couples adopting, voted against the Equality Act and tried to stop the repeal of Section 28, a law which prevented teachers discussing LGBT issues in schools.
