“Modern Family” star lashes back at homophobic Facebook haters
Jesse Tyler Ferguson doesn’t hold anything back in this widely-shared Facebook post.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson is finding that his Facebook family might not be as welcoming as his Modern Family.
The openly gay star on the ABC comedy wrote a scathing note on his Facebook fan page Monday deriding his homophobic haters. Ferguson’s note was in response to the backlash he received for encouraging fans to vote for pro-marriage propositions on some state’s ballots.
Calling his supporters “amazing” and “supportive,” Ferguson called out his other so-called fans for chastising his sexual orientation.
“But I am in shock and ashamed of many of my ‘fans’ who are standing firm in their stance that I am ‘less than’ them because of my sexual orientation,” wrote Ferguson. “To those who feel this way: I gladly show you the door and wish you well on your journey.”
The note clocked in more than 2,100 likes, 60 shares, and hundreds of positive comments backing Ferguson and encouraging him to “stand strong.”
“Jesse, I have, and always will, stand with you and Justin. And I have taught my daughter to do the same! Basic human rights, emotions, dignity… all belong to ALL humanity,” wrote one of Ferguson’s Facebook fans, L.J. Stevens. “It is not easy to be a crusader, to be strong, to be true to what you know deep down is right. My family will now and forever stand with you.”
