If BB's Nick is written as homophobic and if he is not shown to have any legitimate motivations or reasons behind his feelings (like being raped in prison for instance), and if they are simply turning him into another Tad and not just a close family member who needs time to come to acceptance, then I don't think even BB could save the character.
Are you suggesting that it is legitimate for a woman to hate all (straight) men if she is raped? That seems to be what you are implying by saying it is legitimate for Nick to be homophobic if he was raped in prison. I don't see any distinction given what you said. Maybe that's not what you meant to convey.

If Nick was raped in prison, it would be interesting if learning of Will's sexuality brings back repressed memories of the horrors he experienced in prison and it affects him greatly. That still wouldn't make it right for Nick to lash out or hate Will even if it generates more drama.
