Real O’Neals star apologises for humiliating Colton Haynes after his coming out

THE REAL O'NEALS - "The Real F Word" - It's Kenny's first day back at school since coming out, and he uses a certain "F word" to describe himself, which then backfires. Meanwhile, Eileen helps Pat choose a couch for his new living space in the basement but she ultimately struggles with accepting this new phase in their relationship, on "The Real O'Neals," TUESDAY, MARCH 15 (8:30-9:00 p.m. EDT) on the ABC Television Network.

Noah Galvin – the star of Savage’s gay-themed sitcom – mocked Colton in an interview with Vulture: “That’s not coming out. That’s f**king pussy bullsh*t. That’s like, enough people assume that I sleep with men, so I’m just going to slightly confirm the fact that I’ve s*cked a d*ck or two. That’s not doing anything for the little gays but giving them more masturbation material.”

Haynes could not leave these words without an answer: “It’s extremely ironic [ed: not irony] that only a month ago I was tweeting this kid & saying that he should win an Emmy for his week. Then today he returns the favour by calling me a pussy and the worst to the entire world. For him to judge me without even meeting me and having no idea the struggles I’ve been through is absolutely uncalled for and quite frankly embarrassing on his party. Since when is a three-page article in EW not an appropriate way to come out? And since when did he become the judge of what’s appropriate?”

And Noah decided to apologise: “The entire interview I gave to Vulture has hurt the LGBTQ community and the industry I feel truly fortunate to be a part of. My only intention was to try and empower and promote honesty, but I fully understand that comments I made were brazen and hurtful. To Colton Haynes and to the LGBTQ youth, especially those who have embraced our show, I have no right to dictate how or when anybody comes out of the closet; I know how difficult and scary the process of coming out can be, and the last thing I would ever want to do is make it scarier. For anyone.”
