The actor who plays a gay character on Showtime’s medical dramedy finally comes clean about his sexuality in a Facebook video.
Haaz Sleiman has just come clean about his sexuality. After previously saying that he’s straight, the 41-year-old actor who played a gay character on Showtime’s medical drama comedy series “Nurse Jackie” now comes out as gay in a new Facebook video. “I am a gay, Muslim, Arab-American man,” so he opened up.
“And I’m going to take it even further – Not only am I gay, but I’m also a bottom. Not only am I a bottom, but I’m also a total bottom which means I like it up you know where,” he boldly continued. “And I say this to all the homophobes living in the United States of America and across the globe… Why not? If you ever come to me, to kill me just because I’m gay, I will destroy you. I might be gay and I might be a nice guy, but don’t get it twisted because I will f**k you up.”
In another post, Sleiman explained the 2009 interview where he said he was straight. “The Advocate wanted to interview me,” he said. “I told Showtime only on one condition, no personal questions. The Advocate agreed. At the end of the half hour interview over the phone the idiot interviewer, whom I think was gay, asked me if was gay or straight (no personal questions)… I was so shocked. I froze. My body started shaking. And then I lied and said I was straight. Shame on gay people who are not kind to other gay people. He did that on purpose.”
A couple of day before his bold confession, Sleiman teased his online followers, “So… Do you guys think I’m straight, gay, bi, pan, trans, or just simply a narcissistic actor who takes way too many selfies?”
