Lindsey Graham on Friday quashed rumors of being gay after Chelsea Handler wrote a tweet mocking the single Republican as being closeted, which many critics deemed homophobic.

Graham's support of Brett Kavanaugh - has been that she's stooped to using homophobia to attack him. To the extend that this matters, I'm not gay.

While Graham has previously denied he is gay, some sites have reported his sexual orientation is an "open secret" in D.C. circles. "And these comments, I don't think they reflect well on her and I don't know how [her comments] makes us a better country, but that's up to her not me", Graham added. "And that's a good thing". The comedian, an advocate for women's and LGBT rights, let the tweet stand and never followed up with further explanation. She has yet to delete it. In January, she blasted Graham with a homophobic slur for working with President Donald Trump.
