Hackers out Joe McElderry
2010-07-31 by Dr Dave De Sylvia STAFF | 48 Comments

X Factor winner Joe McElderry has revealed that he is gay, after hackers had jokingly outed him on his Twitter account last month.

In an interview with a British tabloid, 19-year-old McElderry claimed he had never really questioned his sexuality until hackers posted the fake messages on his Twitter account, which stated that he had been "living a lie for so many years."

"I think the Twitter thing was the point when I realised I was gay," he told the newspaper. He added on his website: "There has been speculation about my sexuality in the past and I have always been honest at the time I have been asked."

McElderry has had a disappointing beginning to his singing career, having become the first X Factor win to fail to capture the Christmas #1 spot in the UK with his cover of Miley Cyrus' 'The Climb.'

"What made you realize that you're gay?"

"Well, these people hacked into my Twitter and posted messages saying that I was gay. I know that it was a joke, but then I thought to myself. It was at that moment that I realized that I love the cock."
