Paige Spiranac says Justin Thomas should not be cancelled but is undefendable after his homophobic slur

PAIGE SPIRANAC says disgraced golfer Justin Thomas 'should not be cancelled' after using a homophobic slur.

But the American social media star and ex-golfer has slammed then World No3 for the foul language and says it should 'never be tolerated'.

Thomas used the highly-offensive term 'f****t' when he missed a putt at the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

And his foul language was picked up by microphones on the course on Saturday night.

The world No 3 apologised after his round and admitted he felt 'embarrassed' by his actions.

Spiranac decided to comment on golf fans' tweets on Thomas' regretful actions.

One person tweeted: "You want hot mics this is what you get. Raw emotion. Doesn’t mean he’s a bad guy.

"Don’t watch if you get triggered by everything

Spiranac replied: "“You can give raw emotion without being racist or homophobic. There are certain words that should not be said or tolerated.

"He should not be cancelled and I’m glad he apologised. But no one should ever defend the word he used.”

Another social media user, Alex Rorizzo wrote: "He said a bad word directed at nobody in a heated moment.

"He shouldn’t have said it, but trying to draw conclusions on who he is as a person is nuts.

"If someone is that deeply offended by this, that’s an issue in itself."

Again Spiranac decided to comment, writing: "As a straight man you have no right to say it’s not offensive.

" No one is trying to cancel him but that word is offensive and should NEVER be used. End of discussion.”

The PGA Tour also slammed Thomas' comment as "unacceptable" in a statement.

ESPN reported that Thomas is likely to be fined by the PGA Tour for his conduct.
