Billy Eichner would like to make it absolutely clear that he does not support the timing of Kevin Spacey’s decision to come out as a gay man. The actor, who also identifies his gay, tweeted Monday that Kevin Spacey had invented “a bad time to come out.”
That Kevin Spacey statement. Nope. Absolutely not. Nope.— billy eichner (@billyeichner) October 30, 2017
Kevin Spacey has just invented something that has never existed before: a bad time to come out.— billy eichner (@billyeichner) October 30, 2017
Imagine the Astros walking off the field only to find out Kevin Spacey is gay. The shock of it all.— billy eichner (@billyeichner) October 30, 2017
But honestly I hesitate to make jokes because the Spacey statement is truly disgusting, irresponsible and dangerous. Ok goodnight!— billy eichner (@billyeichner) October 30, 2017
The tweets are referring to Kevin Spacey’s response to accusations that he had attempted to molest a 14-year-old child actor in the early 90s. Spacey apologized to the actor, Anthony Rapp, even while denying any memory of the assault. He then went on to state that he was choosing to live “as a gay man,” confirming rumors that have swirled around his sexuality for decades.
