Is Stephen Amell's Gay Pride Shirt Tasteless?
Funny Frat Bro Or A Complete Insult?
Ahhh, okay! So, I'm not one to bury an ally of the LGBTQ community, but this mock apparel is truly grinding my gears. On Sunday, Vancouver celebrated its gay pride and it was obviously one of the better hashtags to follow on social media throughout the weekend. The CW's lead actor in Arrow, Stephen Amell, attended Vancouver Pride and even spent some time with Drag Queens as seen in the photograph below.
While that is fine and dandy, Amell decided *this* shirt should be his pride outfit.
Yes, Amell is wearing one of those horribly tacky, confusing shirts that read "I'm not gay, but $20 is $20." Like, okay? I don't doubt that Amell isn't an ally. He even appeared in two episodes of the silver screen gay Bible, Queer As Folk. But the shirt choice is just, stupid. That shirt is basically saying you'll be gay for (low) pay. I can't believe these shirts are still in circulation! Amell is obviously a stud, but I think this shirt is the only thing that definitely doesn't suit him. Perhaps he should've showed up in the Green Arrow costume.
Are you giving an eye roll to Amell's pride outfit?
