People are in denial about gay McCarthyism being here.
What are they gonna do? Force him to play the part?
Off with his head, I guess.
No, just blacklist him and ruin his career and life.
Good for him.
Hollywood cannot be more sick.
You don’t have a right to not be gay?
Apparently, if a heterosexual actor doesn’t want to simulate gay sex with another man, they will be blacklisted.
Well, on the upside, a truly moral actor/actress could just go the “I don’t do sex scenes” route and probably avoid the trap entirely.
How does the complaining actor know that the quitter quit “because he didn’t want to play a gay part”?
The burden of proof is on the accuser, isn’t it? Or is sentence first, verdict afterwards on these sorts of issues now?
he will never find work again
Since liberals can not distinguish between reality and fiction, they will trash him for “homophobia.”
Maybe the actor doesn’t want to be forced into compromising situations with a man? I used to act in plays and could not bring myself to let anyone touch me in personal places simply to further the play. I wouldn’t have made it in Hollyweird. Kudos to this man for his strength in the face of Leftist bullying.
He’ll never work in Hollywood again.
What does a “gay” vampire suck?
Apparently, he doesn’t want to know.
Also there were a lot of rumors about a gay casting couch for that show.
It’s like making a women do a nude scene.
Why did these people think it was just OK to spring this on someone?
No, there was one married man actor who refuses to do sex scenes and I remember them bashing him good a few years ago.
