One of the first Britain’s Got Talent casualties would appear to be Max Oliver, whose performance as an impersonation of Lady Gaga was widely panned by the internet community.

Just 21, Oliver read in horror as Youtube users left comments such as “You f***ing slag, you should die? and “Hope he dies within a year?.

Speaking to The Sun after his outing on the video site gained him 200,000 viewers, Oliver explained, “It was very hurtful. People hate me because I’m gay and dress up as a woman. I don’t see a big deal in that but some small-minded people do. Some even said my mum should have killed me at birth.?

Although some of the worst messages have been removed by Youtube, the young performer maintains, “it was hard to take.”
