Harry Potter fans have been digging into the story’s homosexual subtext for years — since, y’know, J.K. Rowling didn’t reveal any openly gay characters until after the final book’s publication.
But out YouTuber Jon Cozart (a.k.a. Paint) really got people huffing and puffing over his recent claim about Hufflepuff legend Cedric Diggory’s sexuality.

Some commenters agreed with Cozart’s assertion.
I mean…. 😬 I would have cried for that same reason. But slytherin’s got enough to go around

Most Harry Potter jokes I roll my eyes at these days but this is 100% valid.

By the way, you can find plenty of gay Cedric fan fiction on the web, if you want more of that top energy.
