Jesse Tyler Ferguson Shows Anti-Gay Fans The Door On Facebook

As an actor I have learned that I have to develop a thick skin but as a HUMAN I am having a harder time. The amount of vitriol I have received in the past few days over my stance on marriage equality could kill an adult horse! The majority of my fans have been amazing & supportive. 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. To those who feel this way: I gladly show you the door and wish you well on your journey.”

— Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson takes “fans” that oppose marriage equality to task on Facebook.

    That’s very wise words, and unexpected coming from a ginger, as they have no souls! Haha, I am just kidding. Mr. Ferguson, you are a splendid actor, and a brilliant partner (from the many many many many photos and videos that you guys share with the world), but more importantly, a brave, and caring man – one that summoned the courage to come out, and stand for the rights of those of us that do not have your reach. Well done, keep up the good work!

    One of the few republicans I like and one of the very few who doesn’t vote blindly for a republican president just because he’s a republican, right or wrong. Jesse is a republican who gets what equality and discrimination are all about. He puts the GOProuders to shame.

    @alexoloughlin: 2-year-olds put the GOProud to shame. good for JTF. better to have real friends who support your rights than fake fans who like you just for entertainment and nothing else

    You seem to be the only person on the Internet who believes that JTF is a Republican.

    Apart from posing as a GOP congressional candidate in a comedic skit, there’s nothing that indicates JTF is a Republican. (In real life at least.)
