Misha Collins Clarifies That He Is Not Bisexual, Actually

It was a big weekend for the Supernatural fandom after actor Misha Collins, who played the angel Castiel, appeared to say that he was bisexual at a convention in New Jersey. On April 22nd, 2022, Collins was at the Creation Entertainment Supernatural Convention when he asked the gathered crowd to respond, “by a show of force, how many of you would consider yourselves” to be “introverts,” “extroverts,” and “how many bisexuals.” Then he added, after rounds of cheers and laughter to the third option, “I’m all three.”

Considering the way this was phrased, it’s not surprising that, as a fan’s video of the moment made the rounds on the Internet, people took this as Collins saying that he was bisexual. That’s, uh, what he said. Only now, days later, the actor is walking it back with a declaration that he is straight, apologizing for any confusion, and explaining that he misspoke. He wrote on Twitter, “My clumsy intention was to wave off actually discussing my sexuality, but I badly fumbled that and understand that was seen as me coming out as bisexual […] This was not my intention so I need to correct the record: I am not bisexual. I happen to be straight, but I am also a fierce ally and the last thing I want to do is falsely co-opt the struggles of the LGBTQIA+ community. I am deeply sorry for the clumsiness of my language.” It’s a sincere statement from Collins, but this was all a journey for fans and the Internet at large that continues via many, many Tweets, Tumblr posts, and memes.
