But apparently all is not what it seems as witnesses to the situation have said that Tomlinson was in fact just commenting that it was unfortunate that another party goer shared the same birthday as him.

The clip was originally posted by @booomitsbieber who was in attendance when a slightly drunk Tomlinson uttered his debatable remarks. And it didn't take long for #ImGayItsPrettyUnfortunate to begin trending as discussion reached fever pitch.

Tomlinson has angrily denied he is gay in the past and no doubt this debacle will not be welcomed warmly by him and his current girlfriend Eleanor Caldor.
