Colton Haynes has hit back at The Real O'Neals star, Noah Galvin who earlier referred to Haynes' coming out as "F*ing P—* Bulls@".
Galvin would later retract his statement and apologize for the comments, but that did not stop Haynes from giving him his two cents on the matter.
“It’s extremely ironic that only a month ago I was tweeting this kid & saying that he should win an Emmy for his work,” Haynes posted on his Instagram account last Thursday. "Let me just clarify, I’ve never met this kid, so for him to judge me without even meeting & having no idea the struggles I’ve been through or where I come from is absolutely uncalled for and quite frankly embarrassing on his part."
He ended the message with some advice, “You’re young kid… hopefully you’ll eventually learn a thing or two. Good luck. I’m sure I’ll seeya around.” Haynes wrote.
An as an additional jab at Galvin, Haynes used the other actor's words against him by signing his name Colton P-* Haynes.
Galvin dropped the controversial comments in an interview with Vulture, when he was asked about how Haynes came out without specifically saying that he was gay.
In full, Galvin stated: "That's (Haynes coming out ) not coming out. That's fu-* pu-* bulls@. That's like, enough people assume that I sleep with men, so I'm just going to slightly confirm the fact that I've sucked a dick or two. That's not doing anything for the little gays but giving them more masturbation material."
On Thursday he issued a statement apologizing for what he said:
“The entire interview I gave to Vulture has hurt the LGBTQ community and the industry I feel truly fortunate to be a part of,” the statement reads, “My only intention was to try and empower and promote honesty, but I fully understand that comments I made were brazen and hurtful. 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."
