“I am deeply sorry for the clumsiness of my language”.

Supernatural fans rejoiced this weekend when it appeared that fan-favorite Misha Collins, who played the fallen angel Castiel, came out as bisexual. The one-minute-thirteen-second video captured Collins who casually suggested to the crowd that he was bi. Now he’s setting the record straight. The 47-year-old actor took to social media today to clarify his intentions, and to issue an apology to anyone he confused.

“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,” wrote Collins. “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”.

The star continued saying that this was not his intention. “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”. Collins went on to apologize for the miscommunication, reiterating his dedication to being a better ally.

What Happened in The Video?

The video in question captures Collins at the podium posing an unusual question. “By show of force, how many of you would consider yourself introverts?” asks Collins. Hands raise silently around him before he continues, “How many extroverts?” More hands raise around him. “And how many bisexuals?” This captures the crowd off guard, and they burst into laughter. One attendee can be heard saying, “where did that come from?” Before the crowd calmed down, Collins motions to himself saying, “I’m all three.”

Reactions to this apology have been mixed, with some people saying that it was a simple mistake. Others feel conflicted about it, despite their deep love and appreciation for the actor. Collins also posted the full apology on Instagram.
