The way I see it, A) "sound guy wasn’t referencing HL but just lgbt+ culture" is null ‘cause there was bday tweets only on HL’s bdays and not liam’s, he liked a larry ok tweet, he had 2 bears v obviously celebrating harrys bday together etc, B) "HL knew abt the bears but not the Larry references" is null ‘cause the twitter/phone was full of Larry messages, they must have seen it at some point, literally everyone was losing their fucking mind thinking it was them and they not once checked to 1/2
2/2 see what was going on with the sound guy and his ‘little project’ yeah right C) “they knew and let it go on” is null ‘cause they hate gay rumours and the past is hard for them to think abt ‘cause we ruined their friendship, so then D) “they knew and agreed/helped/had smth to do with the bears” is LITERALLY THE ONLY OPTION even if it was the sound guy physically operating the bears at times, or fucking queen elizabeth herself. They did that.
THEY DID THAT INDEED, MY FRIEND. :)
