John Barrowman was bombarded with homophobic messages on Twitter after he married his longtime partner, Scott Gill, on July 2, the Mirror reports.

"I don't get it," John says. "Some of the comments were outrageously vile. Quoting lines from the Bible." But the Torchwood and Arrow star didn’t let Twitter trolls darken his newlywed spirit.

"I won't tolerate it. People like that are banned on my Twitter account. I tell them to f*** off,” he continues. "People have a right to their beliefs but it doesn't mean they have to be nasty and deny other people their human rights. The world is not going to change and fall apart because a gay couple got married. It's a way for us to celebrate our love. That's it."
