The post sparked more transphobic and homophobic comments before being condemned.
The post was reported to Merseyside Police and a spokesperson from the force said “enquiries are ongoing”.
After being reached out for comment, Till posted a video on Instagram, he said:
“As everyone knows I’m always posting very controversial things right, I’m never going to change ever, ever, ever.So the other day I posted this transgender meme, I thought it was funny and I knew it was going to get a backlash.I’ve actually got transgender friends, they thought it was hilarious.You can’t cancel someone who doesn’t give a s*** and I don’t give a s***. But at the same time as well it’s obviously the offended brigade”.
