Did Mischa Collins come out? For a moment, that seemed to be the case — and then it wasn’t.
At a Supernatural fan convention over the weekend, the 47-year-old actor who played fan favorite Cas on the show dropped some subtle statements that appeared to reveal that he sa bisexual.
It all began when he asked the crowd:
“How many of you would consider yourself introverts? How many extroverts?
And how many bisexuals?”
At the third and final question, the audience began to chant and clap — and then Mischa declared:
“I’m all three.”
He then moved on and did not bring up his sexuality again throughout the discussion.
On Monday (April 25) however, Mischa clarified his comments, apologizing for his “clumsy” language and making it clear that he is in fact straight.
He took to Twitter to set the record straight about his sexuality:
“I want to deeply apologize for misspeaking this weekend. At a fan convention in New Jersey, when I was talking with the audience I said that I was ‘all three’ things: an introvert, an extrovert and a bisexual. 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.”
He stated that he did not mean to make people think he was coming out:
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 believe and fully support that we need to sanctify the human right to express our identities honestly and to be free to love whomever we choose openly.”
“And he also gave a heartfelt apology at his clumsy actions:
I am deeply sorry for the clumsiness of my language. I want to be a better ally and I feel sick to my stomach that I might have done anything to make things worse. I’m trying to learn, trying to do better and I will keep listening. Thanks and I’m sorry.”
