English actor Ryan Sampson isn't letting online hate stop him from living his life. 

After he received a homophobic direct message on Twitter, Sampson decided to clear things up, Tweeting out a (super cute!!) picture of him and his boyfriend.

"I was on Instagram and I looked at my direct messages and it turned out someone was trying to rope me in to some (pretty creaky) homophobic banter," the actor, who is best known for playing Grumio on the ITV series Plebs, said in his tweet. "Huh! So, for clarity, here’s a pic of me and the boyf. Just to, y’know...straighten that one out. As it were."

Congrats, Ryan! And weclome to the family!
