Eoghan McDermott and his production team have been accused of promoting a gay agenda on his drivetime 2FM show.
A listener believes the RTÉ presenter is conspiring to “only” have homosexual people feature on his show.
Taking to social media, Eoghan shared the message along with his production team’s reaction.
The listener texted into probe, “Do you have a problem with heterosexual people?”
They then continued their accusations stating, “I note that you only ever have homosexual people on your show.”
The message finished by saying that Eoghan’s alleged imbalance of gay and straight guests was, “Definite inequality.”
Today a listener accused the radio show of featuring gay people too prominently because we talked about Nanette on Netflix AND two of the show team are gay. We have changed our group WhatsApp group to reflect the grand gay conspiracy they have uncovered. pic.twitter.com/PV9Sd5WS17

This isn’t the first time in the presenter has had to defend the content of his show.
James Kavanagh joined him on air recently to discuss safe sex, which he was promoting on behalf of HIV Ireland.
The segment, which urged people to practice safe sex and get regular STI tests, led a listener to complain.
Eoghan defended the segment by calling it “public service broadcasting.”
