YouTube star Alfie Deyes admits that posing on AIDS memorial was inappropriate


YouTube star Alfie Deyes has apologized for taking a selfie while sitting on an AIDS memorial during Brighton Pride that caused a massive anger. The now-deleted picture showed Deyes sitting on Brighton’s AIDS memorial sculpture while waving a rainbow flag during the city’s Pride events. He said that people are always thinking the worst. He agreed to delete the picture but said that it was not meant to offend anyone. “For sure didn’t realise that and didn’t mean to offend anyone if the picture did. I’ve deleted it! Thanks for letting me know x” he wrote. “I’ll never understand why people always think the worst. The replies I’m getting about sitting on the memorial..I didn’t even know it was a memorial and yet people are tweeting saying I don’t care about aids..Spend your time educating others, rather than just instantly attacking,” the Youtube personality added. The installation is one of the few permanent memorials to the AIDS crisis in the UK. The bronze sculpture in Brighton’s New Steine Gardens was unveiled in 2009.
