Colton Haynes had social media buzzing on Saturday, January 2, when he responded to a fan’s speculation about his sexuality.
On Saturday, a user wrote on Tumblr, “When I found out Colton Haynes had a secret gay past, I got so excited even though I know it makes absolutely no difference in my life.”
Twitter immediately exploded with comments from fans, wondering if the actor had just outed himself.
“If Colton Haynes is gay, then I am really happy that he was able to do this,” one person wrote on Twitter.
“I love how Twitter is exploding with positive news of Colton Haynes,” another tweeted.
“If only this would happen for everyone’s coming out experience.”
“Why is everyone so shocked about Colton Haynes coming out, he’s been out since he left the womb,” another person mused.
Last month, Haynes opened up about being hospitalized for anxiety, and his struggles with it since childhood.
“For those of you who are suffering with intense anxiety ur not alone,” he wrote on Twitter.
