Earlier this week, Modern Family star Reid Ewing—he’s Haley’s kinda dimwitted on-again-off-again boyfriend—made news after opening up about his battles with body dysmorphia and addiction to cosmetic surgery.
But then he made headlines in an even better way when he Tweeted about seeing Eugene Bata, another man with body dysmorphia issues being profiled on Good Morning America, and calling him, ahem, ‘hot as f**k.’
When a fellow Twitterer asked if he had just outed himself, Ewing replied:
‘I was never in.’
Well, never in or newly out, bravo Reid. Your story about body dysmorphia will help so many, and your casual attitude about being gay will do the same.
So, even though you didn’t come out — because you didn’t have to — please accept as our gift The Obligatory Coming Out Toaster Oven and a copy of The Gay Agenda.
Welcome, um, out, Reid, welcome out.
