EXCLUSIVE: Gino D'Acampo explains that Brexit tweet and it's not what you think
Gino D’Acampo recently rocked the Twitter boat when he tweeted a rather direct photo demonstrating exactly what he thinks of Brexit.
While away shooting his new series of Gino’s Italian Express, the chef and TV star posted a picture of himself sitting on some sunny steps while putting two middle fingers up to the camera.
‘My view on Brexit…’ he wrote as the caption.
Gino’s followers were split in their reactions to Gino’s tweet. Some found themselves agreeing with him, writing: ‘I’ve always liked you, Gino. Now I like you even more. Fantastico!’
Others weren’t as keen on the star’s expression of politics, with many people reflecting the message of a middle finger right back at him. One upset follower wrote: ‘right back at your remoaning face.’
But it turns out Gino wasn’t actually revealing his thoughts on whether the UK should stay in or leave the EU, he was just expressing how fed up he is of the whole conversation.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk the 42-year-old said: ‘Many people thought I was saying f*ck Brexit. Many people thought I was saying I don’t give a f*ck about Brexit.
‘But what I really meant is I can’t be bothered to listen to all this.’
The restaurant owner went on to explain that he never said he was against or for Brexit: ‘My gesture meant I’ve had enough of listening to this Brexit conversation.’
We feel you, Gino.
He wasn’t too bothered by the negative response though, and called his followers reactions ‘amusing’ to read.
Gino isn’t the only celeb to throw out his thoughts on Brexit recently. At a gig in Verona, Rocketman superstar Elton John told the audience he was ‘sick to death of Brexit’.
‘I am sick to death of politicians, especially British politicians,’ he said, before adding: ‘I am a European. I am not a stupid, colonial, imperialist English idiot.’
It’s safe to say if you voted for Britain to leave the EU, Elton John is not a fan.
