In an eight-second TikTok posted Thursday, the 18-year-old star seemingly came out as gA..y to his followers. Lip-syncing to a viral TikTok sound while lying in bed, he called his coming out “never that serious.”
“When I finally told my friends and family I was gA..y after being scared in the closet for 18 years and all they said was ‘we know,'” he wrote in his TikTok.
The actor’s coming-out video comes months after he clarified for “Stranger Things” fans that his character has feelings for his friend Mike Wheeler (played by Finn Wolfhard).
He added that Will’s feelings were “always kind of there.”
Schnapp says the commonalities between him and his character aren’t lost on him.
In the comments section, followers are voicing their support for the “Hubie Halloween” actor.
