The site, which has been accused of homophobia a number of times this year following their coverage on the legal battle for PrEP and Chris Mears and Jack Laugher's Olympic celebrations, quickly edited out bizarre reference to the Judge's sexuality. But unfortunately for the Daily Mail, screen grabs live forever.

Gay judges? Whatever next!
Is the Daily Mail attacking one of the judges because he's openly gay, an ex olympic fencer, or both? https://t.co/SEWdWNQDlD— Chris Godfrey (@ChrisPJGodfrey) November 3, 2016
