'Because if you’re that stupid and uneducated to just behave like that in any way, shape or form then you’re an idiot, they’re muppets, they’re uneducated, they’re losers and they’re scum. Laugh it off and get on with your day.'
A source told the publication that Callum did the right thing by leaving the scene and not confronting the thugs who hurled abuse at him.
They said he was shaken, but added: 'This is the first time Callum has ever experienced such an attack, he just can’t believe that in this day and age such people exist.'

Callum was previously mugged at knife point while on a night out with friends in Ibiza last year.
The reality star was making his way back to his hotel when he was attacked, according to The Sun.
A source told the publication that the thugs had stolen his passport and the theft has left Callum stranded in Ibiza.
The insider said at the time: 'They've taken his passport. He's stranded in Ibiza and is dealing with the embassy. He's pretty shaken but holding up well.'
An agent for Callum also told the tabloid: 'We are aware of an incident in Ibiza and currently assisting our client however cannot comment any further.'
Speaking out: Callum said: 'As hurtful as it might be, as angry as you might get, as much as you might want to fight people and get upset, all you have to do is to laugh at them'
It comes after Callum was recently said to have sparked a romance with former Love Island star Georgia Steel.
A source said: 'It all happened very quickly but they are really suited and are very in love. Callum and Georgia wanted to keep their romance private and didn't even tell their friends and family.
'It's been something of a whirlwind but they are both very happy and are finding it difficult to hide how they feel about each other.'
Georgia and Callum are said to be 'smitten' after meeting a month ago and have reportedly kept their romance a secret from even their friends and family.
