Gay and bisexual men responded to the tweet in both support and disbelief.
One replied: ‘Because all gay men should share the same interests? Drag Race has a loyal fan group of different genders and sexuality’s (sic). I’m a massive fan of the show, but by no means think every gay man should enjoy the show, of drag isn’t there thing, that doesn’t make them a bad gay person.’
Another responded: ‘This is kind of a low blow statement. Hurts my feelings.’
Then another replied: ‘You know he’s joking right?’
Todrick Hall plays Chicago’s Billy Flynn
The Drag Race choreographer and good friend of Taylor Swift recently spoke to Gay Star News in an exclusive interview.
Todrick Hall recently joined the cast of Chicago at London’s Phoenix Theatre for a limited run, taking over the role of lawyer Billy Flynn.
When asked how he gets into the mindset of playing a ‘famously’ straight character, Hall responded: ‘Well, there’s nothing actually in the script that ever says Billy Flynn is straight.
‘But, that being said, I definitely realize in this interview that the [air] he gives off is a very masculine, him-taking-charge kind of energy.
‘At the end of the day, I love becoming different characters. Whether a man or woman, a drag queen, an animal,’ he said.
Todrick Hall also revealed he’s spending Christmas in London this year.
‘It’s my favorite holiday,’ he revealed.
