UPDATE: Looks like Cher’s a fan of Nickelodeon. After publicly coming out earlier today, Lucas Cruikshank tweeted a screenshot of what appears to be a congratulatory message from the entertainment diva. And he couldn't be more excited.
It’s not everyday that a fellow comes out as gay while in bed with a woman, but that’s how Nickelodeon star Lucas Cruikshank chose to share the news.
Earlier today Lucas, aka Fred Figglehorn of various Nickelodeon shows and a movie, shared the important announcement with his fans. In keeping with his success as a viral video star, Lucas shared the news via a YouTube video starring his close friend and Nickelodeon co-star Jennifer Veal.
The video, titled “ARE YOU GAY?!,” shows Lucas and Jennifer in bed answering questions from Twitter. After almost 90 seconds of beating around the bush, Lucas addresses tweets asking about his sexuality with a simple “I’m gay” followed by a shrug and some giggles.
“My friends and family have known for like three years,” he explains. “I just haven’t felt the need to announce it on the internet.” Not so anymore, with Jennifer teasing Lucas that she knew from the moment they met that he played for the home team. Guess that puts the rumors of them dating to rest.
“How come you don’t have to make a video saying that you’re straight?” Lucas later adds with Jennifer replying that she just might. Now there’s a video we’d like to see!
