In today's edition of "Celeb Interviews That Backfired," The Real O'Neals star Noah Galvin did a blunt AF interview with Vulture.
The 22-year-old actor slammed Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet for his poor portrayal of gay people on TV, director Bryan Singer for allegedly molesting young boys, and Colton Haynes for his method of coming out. Hours after the article hit the internet, Galvin released a statement via Vulture, as well as on Twitter, apologizing to Singer for his "false and unwarranted" comments, to Haynes and Stonestreet for his harsh words, and to the LGBTQ community.
Naturally, Galvin, who is gay himself, received tons of backlash, especially in regards to Haynes. When Haynes came out via a Tumblr response and an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the internet supported him. Unfortunately, Galvin didn't see that as coming out. Instead, he said it was "fucking pussy bullshit." He continued by saying, "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 dick or two. That's not doing anything for the little gays but giving them more masturbation material."
Haynes responded to Galvin's comments by posting a lengthy message on Instagram, explaining how the whole thing was "quite frankly embarrassing." He also begs the question of who gets to have the final say on what is and is not an appropriate way to come out. (The answer should be no one, FYI.)
