Just about 24 hours ago, Nico Hines (pictured) became the Internet’s most hated man, and the fury shows no signs of dying down anytime soon.

Hines, who is white, straight and married with a kid, has been in Rio covering the Olympics for The Daily Beast. As part of his reporting, he thought it would be hilarious to create a fake Grindr profile and bait closeted gay athletes then write all about it. Apparently, his editors thought this would be hilarious, too, because they signed off on it.

Well, very shortly after the article was published Thursday morning, a backlash ensued. The Daily Beast quickly updated the story and issued an apology (it has since been removed from the site entirely), and Hines went radio silent on Twitter. But people are still infuriated, and understandably so.

Check out what they’ve have been saying…
