Retired pro wrestler Matt Cage describes himself on social media as “very gay” and “unapologetic.” Turns out, his pops is, too!
The 30-year-old recently took to Twitter to share a photo of himself and his father… and their boyfriends. He captioned the photo: “My dad and his boyfriend came to Chicago to visit me and my boyfriend.”

Totally cute, right?
The post received nearly 11K likes, 3K retweets, and over 300 comments. But not everyone seemed happy about it. Many had trouble wrapping their heads around how both Cage and his dad could both be gay.
I’m pleasantly lost. If you don’t mind me asking if he your birth father?

Luckily, Cage didn’t let the haters get the best of him.
In response, he tweeted: “I love that some people are so ignorant or stupid, that they can’t wrap their mind around the fact that a gay man (or woman) can still have a child. As if the reproductive system doesn’t exist.”

Cage came out publicly in 2015. In a moving Facebook post, he wrote: “I’m gay… Sorry, ladies. I’m officially pulling myself off of the market. Don’t hate me too bad.”
