He may be competing for love with Andi Dorfman on The Bachelorette Season 10, but that hasn’t kept Tasos Hernandez from being the subject of some tabloid talk. In Touch published an insert photo spread in a recent issue claiming that the 30-year-old Denver guy is gay.

"Andi’s Guy Caught in Gay Scandal!" the segment claimed, with quotes from an anonymous source alleging the wedding photographer/DJ/Spanish teacher is “out” in his group of friends.

Fellow castmate JJ O’Brien posted a pic of the magazine’s spread on Twitter, writing "wow @TasosHernandez - I can't believe you cheated on me like this." The funny man brought lots of light to the situation, and Tasos was quick to reply in kind, albeit with just the right amount of shade.

"@mrjjobrien sorry. Didn't mean to offend. Really love In Touch's accurate & verifiable information. Quality magazine I tell ya. #sarcasm,” he tweeted back to his pal. Hmm, sounds like he’s not taking it seriously, but isn’t super cool with the tabloids writing stories about him.

It’s funny timing, considering Andi had just addressed the question of whether any of her guys were gay in an interview with E!. The question came up because Jason Biggs, tweeter of plenty of less-than-rosy comments, wrote after the premiere that eight of Andi’s fellas are “in the closet.” Andi laughed off the question when Kristin Dos Santos posed it, though we’re pretty sure that no one took it seriously.

What do you think: Did Tasos handle the situation how he should’ve? Would you be mad if this happened to you? Hit the comments!
