Aww! Colton Haynes came out as gay in a new interview on May 5, and Twitter is overflowing with love and support from his wonderful fans! The 27-year-old finally revealed the truth after years of speculation, and we’re sure he’s so relieved to see so many positive messages. See the tweets, here.
Colton Haynes, 27, seriously has the best fans in the world, and they’re filled with pride on May 5 after Colton came out as gay in a new interview. As soon as they saw it, they flocked to Twitter to share their support for the Arrow actor, and their messages are seriously so sweet. Check them out!
Colton has been typecast as the tough-guy bully in Arrow and Teen Wolf, but that’s not who he really is at all. On May 5, he explained in a new EW interview that pretending to be something he’s not took a serious toll on his health, sending him to rehab to deal with his anxiety after developing an ulcer and fainting spells.
To stop the facade, he admitted once and for all that he is in fact gay. He was already out to his family and friends, but worried about how his fans would react since professionals in Hollywood told him to keep it a secret. Luckily, his fans are beautiful people who have nothing but love for him, and took to Twitter to show it.
Many of his fans wanted to say how proud they were of him for making the tough choice to come out. Hundreds of gay men expressed glee at having him on their team (and finally having a shot), while hundreds of women died a little inside knowing they would never stand a chance now. The responses are cute, funny, and heartfelt. See them for yourself, below:
