Noah Galvin Apologizes to Colton Haynes: ‘I Have No Right to Dictate How Anybody Comes Out’

Emma Mead

Soon after his controversial interview with Vulture was published, The Real O’Neals star issued a public apology to the LGBT community.

Yesterday, Vulture published an entertaining (and rather abrasive) interview with The Real O'Neals actor Noah Galvin. The 22-year-old spewed some fiery comments about Colton Haynes, Bryan Singer, and Eric Stonestreet. He questioned Haynes' coming out, implied Singer held gay pool parties to seduce younger men, and threw shade at Stonestreet's flamboyant character on Modern Family.

After receiving backlash from readers, Galvin apologized:

"The entire interview I gave to Vulture has hurt the LGBTQ community and the industry I feel truly fortunate to be a part of. My only intention was to try and empower and promote honesty, but I fully understand that comments I made were brazen and hurtful."

He continued:

"To Colton Haynes and to the LGBTQ youth, especially those who have embraced our show, I have no right to dictate how or when anybody comes out of the closet; I know how difficult and scary the process of coming out can be, and the last thing I would ever want to do is make it scarier."

Then to Stonestreet:

"Eric Stonestreet is a wonderful actor."

And to Singer:

"My comments were false and unwarranted. It was irresponsible and stupid of me to make these allegations against Bryan, and I deeply regret doing so."
