As you’ll recall, Robert Sepulveda Jr. has been fumbling his way through the news, first as the contestant on Logo’s Bachelor clone; then for having worked as an escort; then for having been kind of sex-negative about the whole thing; and also for having run a rainbow-crosswalk nonprofit that may or may not still exist.
His latest misadventure: making noise about suing online bullies, or something.
It’s clear that he doesn’t have the strongest grasp on how the law works. But that didn’t stop him from posting a legal threat to Instagram:
“If you come fro me, we will come for you and prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law,” he wrote. (It’s worth noting that the grammar-checker underlined “prosecute” just now, suggesting that it be changed to “persecute.”)
Who exactly does he intend to “prosecute”? Who knows. As a lawyer pointed out to The Wrap, he’d have to prove that people are spreading lies about him, and that he’s not a public figure. Good luck.
Maybe Robert’s miffed that people are still bringing up his sex worker past. And yes, there is certainly an unfortunate stigma attached to that kind of work, and if he wants to move on — fine, he should be able to do so. But that doesn’t mean he can stop people from talking about it.
‘Gay Bachelor’ Robert Sepulveda Jr. Threatens Legal Action Despite Having A Case
Maybe “…despite NOT having a case”?
Wow. He’s only put a target on his head for more gossip and negative press, and a pacifier in his mouth for coming across like such a hypocritical baby. I suspect it will only get worse…
Threatening messages are indeed illegal and pathetic to see, but that’s not what he’s getting. He getting lots of name calling, vicious name calling, I’m sure, but it’s a risk he put himself in by trying to be “famous” with a sordid past. But negative press/negative social media… sorry, dude. Ignore it, get out of it, or learn to live with it. You put yourself there.
Like all prostitutes, he seems seriously mentally ill/unstable.
What a pathetic stupid useless twat.
So does anyone know if he’s still with any of the guys he met on the show? Would it be wild if he ended up with Brodney, one of the other contestants from Atlanta, who seemed a bit emotionally damaged and couldn’t look Sepúlveda in the eyes? They’d make a cute couple.
Since when did gay men become such sex shamers? You do realize that judgmental finger pointing can just easily get pointed back at your life as well.
My only issue is that he didn’t just own it and stupidly thought he could easily sweep it under the carpet. You’d have the usual judgmental twats but they’d eventually get drowned out by his defenders and we’d be many. This could’ve actually helped him.
@ChrisK: There is a difference between sex shaming and shaming someone for drinking seminal fluids from a clients condom and shoving a bottle up his *** on video. He was ignorant to expect those things wouldn’t come up.
I must agree, ,,, ,Prince Charming and sucking cum out of at least a day old used rubber, fed exd at that, will never EVER FLY. If I were him I’d be running for the hills and stop bringing Shame to the gay community. The guy is a true skid mark on gay culture.
Curious that not even a sleazy past has made this guy interesting on screen. Maybe his success as a sex worker is that he is so blank that clients could project whatever fantasy they wanted on to him.
He’s the gift that keeps on giving.
@ChrisK: My only issue is not actually with him or his past but rather with the production company for thinking he was an appropriate candidate to represent the gay community on this TV show. He can do what he wants with his life and there will be a voyeuristic who want to watch but the production company should have taken more responsibility in picking a bachelor if they are going to take it upon themselves to represent us on national television. You don’t see the straight bachelor shows choosing ex hookers ar porn performers or even strippers for their shows. Why was it deemed good enough for the gay version.
@Jack Meoff: voyeuristic audience
@scottybro: I seriously doubt he was dumb enough to drink out of used condom. It is a movie appealing to someone’s fantasy, there could have been anything that condom. Ditto with the box of different things that he supposedly got in the mail. They don’t call it SHOW business for nothing. It APPEARS to show what the viewer wants to see.
Edit – I meant a “real” used condom.
@Jack Meoff: Why do people think that because he is gay and on TV he has a responsibility of representing the entire gay community? Like it or not, he does represent a segment. I don’t think shows should be produced in an effort to gain acceptance from the straight community. I would very much like to see REAL LIFE and not some imaginary fairy tale. There is too much pressure for everyone on the show to be “an upstanding member of the community” and because of this the show is not real to me.
Fuck that prostitute. He has nothing to contribute to gay life.
I’m not sure who would pay to have sex with this guy. His plastic surgery makes him look like one of the Kardashian klan. Not so sexy.
@Erma Ferkingerd: He represents a very small segment of gay culture. I would rather see someone on a show like this who represents a larger portion of the gay community. It’s not about acceptance by the straight community.
First of all liar, the problem about your escorting life is not the issue. The issue is you lied about it as if you were ashamed of it. Why. E ashamed if you did for many many years to get through school as you say. The other issue is you continue to lie and say it’s the past but it seems you may have just stopped before the show tape this summer. It seems this profession brought you a great life of material possession so why be ashamed. we all have past but we do not go on a show trying to make people believe you really looking for love. You don’t have to be on tv to do that. Stop with the nonsense with these non profits and entrepreneur saying. It’s so lame.
Sepulveda couldn’t care less. This is all about generating controversy that generates discussion and viewers and greater advertising dollars. The better the show does the better everyone involved does. The Kardashians do this every other second because they know the more popular the show the more money in their pockets.
@ChrisK: Hey man. I’m sure you know just as well as anyone here that people aren’t sex shaming him at all. The main issue is he was a prostitute and an an extremely raunchy one. That’s fine. It’s his business… But Logo decided to make him into a Prince Charming, which couldn’t be farther from the truth. Whether he likes it or not, he is representing the a Prince Of Gay Men for America at this moment, so for many people, especially younger ones are looking for role models in a gay man/bachelor, as well as for gay male relationships. So, it’s hypercritical bullsh*t and only adds fuel to the fire of those who believe gay men are all over sexed, raunchy prostitutes.
Further, LOGO did not tell the contestants of this man’s past. It is unknown if Logo did any background checking on this man, which, again, is extremely disappointing because either they did not perform due diligence or they knew and did not care, or the worst scenario of all, they knew and hoped it would be a breaking story to up rating.
How can you not see that?
@mastik8: True, true. Unfortunately, here, unlike the K Klan, has backfired, because the ratings are low and the LGBT community is grossed out, tuned out. Besides, once this show is over, so is his celebrity status. Worse, this has effected him in nothing but harmful ways. His career, reputation, and personal life have taken a major hit. But since he’s an ego maniac, no loss for the LGBT community. He needs to get off the public stage
@Jaroslaw: You’re thinking that the video was made for public consumption (i.e. show business). It wasn’t. It was to be private. Prostitute to John. Major difference.
Yep. It’s Robert’s shadiness that’s the problem, not the past actions themselves. He has a big capital L on his forehead for LIAR.
@jdboston617: The reason people watch is they want to see some hot guys and drama. They’re not looking for some proper role model show. That’s why shows like the Kardashians and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo are so popular.
At any rate, the fantasy of him being a Prince Charming is out the window now. Nothing else to see.
I’m sure anything these guys are doing is for media attention. The show is trying super hard to be the gay Bachelor. Story lines are even similar to past Bachelor seasons. I think this type of thing works better for the hetero dynamic. A bunch of grown men acting like a bunch of silly love struck girls desperate for the same man is way more pathetic than the real Bachelor, which I didn’t even think was possible.
@ChrisK: That is not entirely true. It is a first of it’s kind. It sets a tone and standard. Of course it’s TV… but unlike our straight counterparts, we do not have much, if any, variety. So they should be more responsible. Also, young or inexperienced gay men who look for a sense of “normalcy” in gay male relationships will look to this. And that is a valid concern.
Besides, my comment to you was disputing your comment that people were sex shaming. 🙂 They’re not.
@Masc Pride: BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You’re funny. Agreed!!!
As as Community we should support each other, not bully, shame and be mean!!!
@orcanyc: Yes, but being queer doesn’t give you a free pass in life from the community. I support my community, but I don’t support liars or charlatans queer or not. No one should.
There are countless great looking and successful gay guys and they had to pick this escort with plastic surgery written all over his face? Seriously, Logo?
Stop giving press to this DOUCHE bag and he will crawl back under his rock.
