The Guy Who Posted A Pic With Former Rep. Aaron Schock Says He’s Being Bullied
Jeremy Cormier, a New York-based influencer on Instagram is saying that people are criticizing him for being friends with Aaron Schock.
Of course, Aaron doesn’t have a good reputation with the LGBTQ community who is still upset about his long anti-LGBTQ record, which he has yet to apologize for, during his time as U.S. Representative for Illinois’s 18th congressional district.
Now, Jeremy says he’s become the target of online abuse, which has inspired him to donate money to two prominent LGBTQ organizations.
“Aaron Schock and I became friends in 2019,” he wrote on his account. “I do not now, nor have I ever shared or supported the views he espoused concerning LGBTQ rights while in Congress. Knowing him, is to know someone who’s viewpoint has grown and changed significantly in the last decade. To affect change open communication among those with differing views is essential. The support our community enjoys can only grow when we reach out to those who don’t share our viewpoint.”
Last week, Jeremy posted the picture of himself and Aaron strolling along the beach in Malibu along with the caption: “Beach bros.”
Who knows if it’s genuine, but at least he’s putting money in a good place.
