Tyler Posey on Snapchat ‘This is Me, I’m Gay’

Tyler Posey Kissed Dylan Sprayberry

On Friday, Tyler Posey supposedly “came out” on Snapchat. But not really. While standing in front of a sign for ‘Gay St.’ Tyler declared: “This is me, I am this and this is me. I’ve never felt more alive! I’m Gay!”


This sent Twitter and the rest of the internet into a craze. But not long after, Tyler gave a hint at the fact he was joking in another Snapchat video where he strangely announced “I’m Lamp” in a clip of himself and a bedroom lamp.

This morning he came clean on Twitter, admitting he’s not gay, and shared his reason behind the gay announcement.

Although we’re pretty sure his initial joke had nothing to do with sharing his support for the LGBTQ community. It was more likely a silly comment that came out the wrong way.

We don’t think Tyler Posey intentionally meant to offend anyone. But it became pretty clear after his less-than-genuine coming-out prank that is wasn’t well received. He’s a 24 year old kid who made a stupid joke, nothing to get bent out of shape about.

It’s clear from his previous actions as an LGBT ally and from his apology that he regrets what happened. So we’ll leave it at that.

On a side note, when we first heard about the story, even though we knew it was unlikely, we couldn’t help but think how awesome it would have been if Tyler was actually gay. Two actors from Teen Wolf have already come out (Colton Haynes and Charlie Carver). If Tyler Posey had joined the team, Teen Wolf would have the largest gay audience ever. But who are we kidding, it already does!
