Tyler Posey apologises for ‘coming out’

By Fabio Crispim

Yesterday (July 30) we reported that Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey ‘came out’ in a snapchat video, but turns out it was all a joke.

In the video, the 24-year-old actor focused on a street sign that read ‘Gay’ and he said, “This is me. I am this and this is me. I’ve never felt more alive, I’m gay!”

But Posey took to Twitter yesterday (July 30) to apologise for the joke.

He wrote, “I am a big proponent of love over hate, and standing together during divisive times.”

“Although I’m not gay, I fully support the LGBTQ community. This was a moment intended to reflect that.”

He adds, “And everyone, I am truly sorry to the people I’ve offended or lessened how big coming out is. I just want to spread love in this world.”
