Months After Colton Haynes Came Out, Another Teen Wolf Star Says He’s Gay

By  | 

Teen Wolf fans’ minds have been solely focused on the fact that the MTV hit is ending after this season, but thanks to Tyler Posey, their attention shifted.

On Friday night, the 24-year-old actor posted a Snapchat in which he showed a street sign called ‘Gay Street’ and said, “I am this and this is me. I’ve never felt more alive; I’m gay!”

Fans immediately flocked to support the star, just like they did with co-star Colton Haynes at the beginning of May, praising him for his quirky way of coming out and expressing their love for him all over social media. But love quickly turned to confusion when Tyler followed up the ‘I’m gay!’ Snap with another video, this time mimicking his first upload but with a lamp as the subject.

Much to people’s disappointment and disgust, Ty was never really coming out. Although he obviously thought the joke would be funny, he received tons of criticism saying that he was minimizing the significance of people who actually do decide to come out, and was forced to explain his actions and apologize.

But despite his apology, a big majority of the LGBTQ+ community still feel incredibly angry at his stunt and aren’t going to let him off the hook that easily.

Do you think Tyler crossed the line with his joke?
