In his statement, the actor portraying Castiel on ‘Supernatural’ apologizes for the ‘clumsiness’ of his language and promises to be a ‘better ally’ for LGBTQ+ community.
AceShowbiz –Misha Collins has something to clarify. The Castiel depicter on “Supernatural” has set the record straight on his sexuality after “misspeaking” about him being bisexual during a recent fan convention.
On Monday, April 25, the 47-year-old actor issued an apology via Instagram and Twitter that read, “I want to deeply apologize for misspeaking this weekend.” He continued, “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.”
“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,” Misha went on explaining. He later pointed out, “This was not my intention so I need to correct the record: I am not bisexual.”
Misha continued, “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 “Charmed” actor went on saying that he “[believes] and [fully supports] that we need to sanctify the human right to express our identities honestly and to be free to love whomever we choose openly.”
“I am deeply sorry for the clumsiness of my language,” Misha expressed his remorse. He later noted that he wants “to be a better ally.” He added, “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,” before concluding his message, “Thanks and I’m sorry.”
Rumors of Misha coming out as bisexual emerged after he subtly mentioned the matter during a fan convention in New Jersey on April 22. “How many of you would consider yourself introverts? How many extroverts? And how many bisexuals?” the “Some Things I Still Can’t Tell You: Poems” author asked the crowd. At that last question, the audience started chanting and clapping, before he added, “I’m all three.”
