Billy Eichner shows his support for “The Bachelor” star Colton Underwood after he came out as gay.
“The Bachelor” starrevealed his LGBTQ+ status on Wednesday‘s pre-taped episode of “Good Morning America”. Eichner celebrated the occasion by sharing a throwback “Bachelor” clip from 2019 in which he suggested Underwood could be “the first gay Bachelor.”
“I’m gay. I know that’s a shock, Colton. And that I think you should look into,” Eichner told Underwood at the time. “Maybe you’re the first gay Bachelor and we don’t even know.”
“Congrats@coltonunderwood!” Eichner captioned the throwback clip. “If you’re gay, be gay! I’ve been gay forever and I love it!”
Underwood thanked Eichner for the support in the comments section of the post: “Love you. Love this (now) and now I love being gay.”
“I’m happy for you,” Eichner replied. “See you at the club, Colton!”
