Many viewers of the X Factor were not happy with Louis Walsh when he put camp act Bradley and Ottavio through to the live shows in last night’s episode. Some of those viewers went on to write about their distaste of Louis and the act using vile homophobic language.
Some of those viewers wrote about their distaste of Louis and Bradley and Ottavio, on Twitter and used homophobic language calling the stalwart judge a number of homophobic slurs including, “faggot” and “batty”.
Some users questioned his sexuality for putting the two men into the competition.

Louis Walsh was aided by last year’s runner-up Fleur East and Pride in London’s headliner Alesha Dixon who jointly decided to put in the controversial novelty act, Bradley and Ottavio, who have divided viewers on whether they deserve a place in the live shows.
Bradley (right) and Ottavio (left) have become a huge talking point on Twitter since it was revealed that they were through to the live shows, with many believing that acts like The Brooks or 4 of Diamonds should have gone through instead of them.
Homophobic comments continued to pour in as it was revealed that the colourful duo were through to the next round.
