Wayne Lineker stood up to haters who mean "absolutely nothing" to him after a video was released in which he selected the "dream doll" for a date at his club in Ibiza and tossed her in the pool by the chest.
The 58-year-old club owner sparked outrage on social media when the video of him, which was shared on Instagram late last month, reappeared on Twitter. Many branded him "creepy" and called his social media posts "absolutely gross".
However, Gary Lineker's brother has since spoken on Instagram and shared how his date stunt was received with 75% love.
He wrote, "I'm still here and not going anywhere." I was number 1 in the UK on Twitter yesterday with 75 percent love and 25 percent hate. But it was hate that started the trend … It's the 75 that I care about … The rest of you mean absolutely nothing to me and will never hate the way you want. & # 39;

Wayne went on to say that it's the 75 that matter to him – before adding, "The rest of you mean absolutely nothing to me and will never hate anything you want" (pictured)
"Please remember that I have kids that I love and care about, and your crazy basement loser comments can hurt them, and that's not cool.
“You're all 25 and you're asking me for a picture that says we're friends. What is it about. & # 39;
In the outrageous clip, Wayne looks at the camera and says, "It's time to choose the dream doll to take out on a date," before rubbing his palms with hand sanitizer.
One by one, he looks at the young women in orange swimsuits and pushes them into the pool by pressing his hand on the chest of his club O Beach in Ibiza, where famous faces and reality stars can often be seen.

The Commonwealth Champion said, "When Wayne Lineker saw this video in which he chose which" dream doll "to take on a date, what makes you think or feel?

"I think I'm glad I am advocating gender equality because we can all do better." Your thoughts? & # 39;
Stacey went on to say that Wayne Lineker's Facebook page was "absolutely gross".
Another Twitter user replied to Stacey, "I hate the thought of people seeing this and considering it ambitious."
In response to the video, others said it made their skin crawl, and some made comparisons between Wayne and Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner.
One wrote: “Imagine if Hugh Hefner were cloned with leftover meat from a cheap butcher's shop in a covered market. Imagine growing up in a tanning machine, living solely on Wetherspoon's breakfast and creatine. Congratulations, you introduced yourself to Wayne Lineker. «

Another said, “Some people would say Wayne Lineker is living the dream. I think it looks slimy. YUK! & # 39;
The women in the video are part of the Dreamdolls group that dances and performs in front of an audience on the white island of Ibiza.
Wayne Lineker and Katie Salmon are business partners in the group of six, whose talents include ballet dancing, twerking, pneumatic tires and contortions.
Katie quickly jumped to Wayne's defense and said, “You all need to relax. Wayne is my business partner, we only have joke videos made! We are all independent nice women. Half of my girls are taken. Wayne is kidding. Don't look too deeply on social media, you fool. "
People have used social media to express their outrage at the video and branded Wayne Lineker a "horror".

Commenting on Wayne's original Instagram post, Scotty T, the Geordie Shore star, said, "Then rest for me …"
Earlier this year, the owner of O Beach was sued for £ 8.5million after former Premier League footballer Jonathan & # 39; Joey & # 39; Hutchinson was paralyzed after diving into the club's pool.
The former Birmingham City defender was spotted by another guest floating in the pool at the resort, which was called Ocean Beach Club at the time of the incident in June 2016.
The 37-year-old, who was born in Middlesbrough, is now tetraplegic – he suffers from "limited ability to move shoulders, elbows, wrists and otherwise total paralysis of his body".
He claimed the incident could have been avoided if there had been highly visible signs that diving was prohibited.
