Artist Turns Homophobic Tweets About Tom Daley Into a Portrait of the Olympic Diver

Apr 23, 2014

Jezebel highlights via The Plymouth Herald a U.K. artist's portrait of the English Olympic diver Tom Daley that is made from homophobic tweets directed at him after he revealed that he was in a relationship with a man in a video message uploaded to YouTube on Dec. 2, 2013. Daley retweeted the artist Conor Collins's tweet of the portrait last week.

The project is reminiscent of the Honey Maid video in which negative comments about its "This Is Wholesome Campaign" — featuring mixed-race parents and same-sex parents — were rolled up and arranged on the floor to spell out the word "Love."
