Watch: Tom Daley’s biggest fan isn’t happy about him getting married

Nick Duffy October 5, 2015

Tom Daley’s ‘biggest fan’ just found out that the athlete is getting married… and he’s not taking it well.

The Olympic diver announced his engagement last week to his Oscar-winning screenwriter partner Dustin Lance Black.

The diver tweeted that he was super excited to get married and the pair have showed off their matching engagement rings – but some Tom Daley fans are taking it less well.

One fan uploaded a clip to YouTube to mourn his loss.

He said:  “Today I found out some news… it’s pretty shocking. It’s not something that I was expecting.”

Speaking about Daley, he says: “I love the way he smiles, I love the way he talks, I love the way he’s so tiny that I could pick him up and take him places.

“I was on Facebook today, and I found out that he’s engaged.”

He sobs: “How could you do this to me Tom? I love you, I mean I really love you… who even is this Justin Black?

“He’s just walking around like ‘I’m fighting for equality and I have an award for a movie that isn’t even that good’… you know what I have, Tom? Love.”

The video might not be all it seems, however – one commentator joked that the ‘fan’ should “be nominated for an Oscar” for his acting ability in the clip.

Daley and Black revealed they were dating in early 2014, after Daley came out in a YouTube video in December 2013,

Tom Daley’s mother Debra revealed recently that the pair’s wedding planning will not begin until after the 2016 Olympics.
