—Colton Haynes, in an Instagram post responding to Noah Galvin insulting his coming out process.
In an interview with Vulture, Galvin called Haynes’ delayed coming out process “fucking pussy bullshit.”
“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,'” Galvin said. “That’s not doing anything for the little gays but giving them more masturbation material.”
Haynes’ sexuality was the subject of rampant speculation before he came out earlier this year in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. He revealed that the constant discussion surrounding his sexuality had forced him into rehab, but he just wasn’t ready to tell the world that he was gay.
“It was a complete shock. I wasn’t ready to be back in the headlines,” he told EW. “I should have made a comment or a statement, but I just wasn’t ready. I didn’t feel like I owed anyone anything…. But I felt like I was letting people down by not coming forward with the rest of what I should have said.”
In his Instagram psot, he calls out Galvin for insulting him after Haynes tweeted favorably about the actor’s performance in The Real O’Neals.
“It’s extremely ironic that only a month ago I was tweeting this kid [and] saying that he should win an Emmy for his work,” Haynes wrote.
He then calls Galvin out for insulting his coming out process.
“Since when is a three [page] article in Entertainment Weekly not an appropriate way to come out?” he said. “And since when did [Galvin] become the judge of what’s appropriate. Shouldn’t we all be supporting each other?”
Haynes ultimately takes the high road.
“Enjoy all of your success. You’re young kid…hopefully you’ll eventually learn a thing or two.”
