Misha Collins Clarifies He’s Not Bisexual
The statements given by Collins at the event created a lot of controversy on social media. Therefore, the actor had to clarify that he was not bisexual but heterosexual and apologized for the damage and discomfort he caused. He declared,
My clumsy intention was to wave off actually discussing my sexuality, but I badly fumbled that and understand that was seen as me coming out as bisexual.
Collins also stated,
This was not my intention so I need to correct the record: I am not bisexual. I happen to be straight, but I am also a fierce ally and the last thing I want to do is falsely co-opt the struggles of the LGBTQIA+ community.
The actor also added,
I believe and fully support that we need to sanctify the human right to express our identities honestly and to be free to love whomever we choose openly.
Misha ended his remarks with,
I want to be a better ally and I feel sick to my stomach that I might have done anything to make things worse. I’m trying to learn, trying to do better and I will keep listening.
I want to deeply apologize for misspeaking this weekend. At a fan convention in New Jersey, when I was talking with the audience I said that I was “all three” things: an introvert, an extrovert and a bisexual. 1/5 🧵
