Logo's "Prince Charming" Threatens To Sue Haters

Robert Sepulveda, Jr., the inaugural bachelor in Logo's history-making gay dating show Finding Prince Charming, is now in the public eye because of the exposure that comes along with being a reality TV star. Being on such a groundbreaking show comes with perhaps increased scrutiny, and Sepulveda has had enough. 

In a post on Instagram Sunday, the gay bachelor takes a moment to call out online bullies -- and threaten to send his lawyers after them. 

Writes Sepulveda:

Targeted harassment, shaming and bullying is wrong and against the law – it doesn’t matter the age! Listen closely folks, if you come for me, we will come for you and prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law. BULLYING IS WRONG!

It says more about you and your own insecurities then the people you are bullying. Bullying, shaming and targeted harassment has effects on REAL people and REAL lives. And if you support these people or their actions then you are part of the problem.

In the beautiful words of Martin Luther King: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” and on that note….come for me – you’ll be hearing from my attorneys.

What do you think about the reality TV star's message to negative folks online?

I am so tired of gay people putting other gay people down to feel better about themselves. I am sure all these folks critiquing Robert were not mother Theresa when they were younger. Hiding behind the computer and being a vicious bitch makes you no better than any of these socially conservatives that legislate against us and suck d*** in the bathrooms. Love trumps hate! Don't you know that. Shame!

First off, I have to call BS on the "when they were younger" comment.  He was escorting within the last year.  It's not like he did it 20 years ago to pay for school or something.  Secondly, I go back to my original comment.  There are millions of gay men in the country.  They could have picked a doctor, a lawyer, someone who heads up a charity.  Maybe just a "guy next door type".  What did they pick?  A hooker with a Rentboy.com ad.   Don't get me wrong.  He's gorgeous, apparently successful & maybe he's a decent guy.  I'm just saying that with all the eyes that were on this show (both gay & straight) they should have done a better job & not picked someone with such an interesting past.

I understand your desire to normalize gay folks and portray a nice wholesome image.  Haven't we had enough of "normalization" shoved down our throats all of life?  It's LOGO for Christ sake not NBC and it is a reality show, which is so REAL right???  It goes back to the old adage, it doesn't matter how much good you have done or do, you will be remember by the bad.  At the end of the day, it is entertainment, take it for what it is...I understand the disappointment, but he was chosen by the network for whatever reason and why throw stones at him?

If you were born at the time when homosexuality was classified as a mental illness and compulsion, you'd understand that normalizing is not a bad thing. Also, I see this as a double standard. Would we be having the same conversation if this was the Bachelorette and the contestant was a high class call girl?

It's not so much my desire to "normalize" anything or anyone as much as I don't understand the decision to call a prostitute "Prince Charming".   I'm just saying strictly from a business & PR point of view, they could have done much better.

I can see where he would consider this harassment, and shaming, but bullying? How is he a powerless victim?  Mr. Sepulveda put himself in the public eye, he knew his past would catch up with him, and while I do not support cowardly online attacks, that's part of so called reality TV. That's part of the reason I ignore most of reality TV.

You can't win a case against the truth! He was or is an escort and personally, his comments show that he is just money hungry.

I don't care about the show, saw the first ep and called out. All I can think about is Evita when she goes to Rome and she says 'did you hear that, they actually called me a whore' and the response is great. Although your past life is not a life sentence about the future, it is a part is of you, whether you like it or not. The response was 'but in Europe they're wrong, im still call Admiral, yet I left the sea long ago'.

In my eyes 'prince charming' has and always will be a prostitute. I mean how else will anyone fulfill the many unrealistic dreams of the masses better than a prostitute! Scorts unite!

It's really a shame Logo couldn't have found someone else for this show.  Not that there's anything really wrong with being a prostitute, but honestly...out of millions of gay men, this is the one Logo picks to be on TV to be "Prince Charming"?
