Fellow Gay Actor Shames Colton Haynes for “Bulls*it” Way of Coming Out
After years of speculation, Colton Haynes finally confirmed that he is “in fact gay” in a heartfelt Entertainment Weekly article at the beginning of May. But while the Teen Wolf and Arrow star was clearly ecstatic to get that major secret off his chest, another young actor was not impressed.
The Real O’Neals’ Noah Galvin is in some serious hot water after he did a revealing interview with Vulture where he criticized the 27-year-old’s method of coming out, despite being gay himself.
“That’s not coming out,” he said. “That’s f*cking p*ussy bulls*it. That’s like, enough people assume that I sleep with men, so I’m just going to slightly confirm the fact that I’ve sucked a d*ck or two. That’s not doing anything for the little gays but giving them more masturbation material.”
Ummmm…what? And even though the 22-year-old has since apologized for his “brazen and hurtful” comments made toward the former MTV star, Colton is not going to just sit back and bite his tongue. Instead, CS decided to pen his own “open letter” that completely shut his fellow actor the eff down.
“It’s extremely ironic that only a month ago I was tweeting this kid & saying that he should win an Emmy for his work,” he wrote on Instagram. “Then today he returns the favor by calling me a p*ssy & the worst to the entire world. Let me just clarify, I’ve never met this kid, so for him to judge me without even meeting & having no idea the struggles I’ve been through or where I come from is absolutely uncalled for and quite frankly embarrassing on his part. Since when is a three pg article in Entertainment Weekly not an appropriate way to come out? And since when did he become the judge of what’s appropriate. Shouldn’t we all be supporting each other? Enjoy all of your success. You’re young kid… hopefully you’ll eventually learn a thing or two. Good luck. I’m sure I’ll seeya around.” -Colton P*ssy Haynes
Colton is one of at least 10 male celebrities who came out in the past year. See here:
Colton (sort of) addressed speculations concerning his sexuality when he responded to a Tumblr follower's remarks after her discovering Colton's "secret" gay past.
Colton's quick and cryptic response, "Was it a secret?" has lead fans to believe that perhaps he does not identify as entirely straight, if at all.
