Noah Galvin Apologizes to Colton Haynes, Bryan Singer

Noah Galvin

Noah Galvin is sorry.

The Real O'Neals star tweeted a statement expressing regrets for a no-holds-barred interview published Thursday in Vulture.

In the piece, the out actor eviscerated what he perceived as casting discrimination in Hollywood and at times used vulgar language to criticize other actors for not coming out.

The 22-year-old actor also singled out Colton Haynes, an Arrow actor who recently came out after years of speculation,  as "the worst" for his approach to the process.

Just hours after the interview's release, Galvin issued an apology.

"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," Galvin stated in the social media message.

He apologized specifically to Colton Haynes and Eric Stonestreet, a straight actor who portrays a flamboyant gay character on Modern Family. Galvin was critical of Stonestreet's role in the interview.

"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," he wrote.

Galvin also posted another tweet with an apology to Bryan Singer. Galvin had referenced pool parties thrown by the out director of the X-Men franchise, implying he preyed on younger men at these events. The comments have since been removed from the Vulture piece.

"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."

 

Shortly before this statement, Galvin had retweeted a message from Twitter user Ryan Houlihan, who said, "Didn't agree with everything, didn't have to. Thank you for being a breath of fresh air, do not stop listening and speaking."

Galvin's response: "Thank you."
