Former X Factor winner Steve Brookstein has been spending his day insulting women who've had abortions, people with mental health issues, trans people and gay people. A big pat on the back to you Steve.

Brookstein objected to the trending hashtag #ShoutYourAbortion, which aimed to reverse the narrative of shame and silence over abortions after a bill to defund Planned Parenthood for one year passed in the senate this month.

He called the hashtag "repugnant", and wrote, "Notice men are not even considered. Because men don't matter."

During more interactions than we can keep up with (there will have been at least 25 more in the time it took you to read this sentence) Brookstein also referred to several women who objected to his stance as "love", mocked mental health issues, and insulted trans people for no clear reason.

Steve Brookstein had an album and a book out at some point, which he's so desparate for you to know about. Don't buy them.
