Will Shepherd threatened for being a gaymer

YouTube personality and gaymer (gay gamer) Will Shepherd was threatened online for being gay.  For those of you who do not know Will Shepherd, he vlogs everyday in YouTube with his fiance.  I am one of his subscriber fan.

While live streaming on a gaming site, some gamers noticed that Will was wearing a rainbow headband.  What happened next was a hate crime.

Homophobic comments flooded online and eventually his internet connection was Ddos'd by homophobic hackers, forcing it to shut down.  The homophobes further threatened him that they would expose his personal information online.  Homophobia at its best.

After the incident the homophobes explained in a tweet that they were not trying to be "rude".   They took down Will's internet connection not because he was "gay" but because he "likes guys".

Can anyone explain to me what is the difference between a "gay" guy and a guy "who likes guys"?  This is the same reason being given by closeted gays who still thinks they are "straight" despite the fact that they "like guys" and suck dicks.

Will, you are not alone in this fight.  You go gurl!
