The LGBTQ+ community is more visible than ever before, but it seems that being openly gay isn’t enough of a hint these days.
Billy Eichner is no stranger to the LGBTQ community. Unfortunately, he became the prey of a peculiar gossip when his supposed relationship with Noelle co-actress Anna Kendrick came out in a clickbait article.
Eichner and Kendrick, with actual partners Rebel Wilson and girlfriend Ramona Agruma, were some of the “new celebrity relationships” inspiring someone, somewhere this 2021. Indeed, it was a challenging year; however, Eichner – who appears in the gayest rom-com Bros – couldn’t help but roll an eye.
The actor uploaded a photo of the article with the caption “Um.”
Then Kendrick jumped into the fun, commenting on Instagram with this gem: “Honestly… I was so into this dress and ponytail, I’m just glad this pic is getting some play. Also, love you baby.”
Eichner told Kendrick on Twitter that the cat was “out of the bag.” Kendrick went along and pitched in a plug for Eichner’s film.
“We can finally live our truth, Billy!” the actress said. “You’ve felt so pressured to seem like a gay man that you made #BrosMovie, but you’re free now! Our love can flourish!”
“Wish my father was alive to see me hilariously responding to clickbait!” Eichner posted a tweet. “Happy Father’s Day!!!”
Well, that was an odd issue. An Instagram comment from Sharon Stone made it even odder: “Hahaha. It’s only one gay a day time, Billy.”
Whatever its meaning: Iconic.
