Stranger Things star has silenced homophobic Twitter comments

Stranger Things favourite Brett Gelman has silenced homophobic Twitter comments while supporting fans’ ‘Byler’ theory.

Will Byers (portrayed by Noah Schnapp) and Mike Wheeler (Finn Wolfhard) are best mates in the Netflix hit, which just returned for a split-in-half fourth season. Fans have also speculated about the possibility of a romantic connection developing between the pair over the years.

For now, only a portion of this can be true, given Will’s recently-confirmed sexuality, yet Gelman, who plays Murray Bauman, is definitely on board the Byler ship.

“I am for Byler if Byler is for Byler. If it’s a match then it should be so. I’m not for Byler if Mike isn’t for it because then Will gets hurt,” he tweeted at the beginning of an impassioned thread.

“And I also don’t want El to have a broken heart. But if Byler is what is meant to be then I ship Byler BIG TIME!!!”

Gelman later added: “It’s pretty pathetic that all you little homophobes think calling me gay is an insult. It’s a compliment. So thank you.

“I ship love in whatever form it takes baby. And y’all who don’t. Maybe you’re scared to look at something,” before Gelman reiterated in a separate post: “I Stan the LGBTQ+ community”.

The Fleabag actor also pointed out that Mike and Eleven’s (Millie Bobby Brown) potential love for each other could lead to an equally compelling storyline, saying: “Let me be clear that I also ship Eleven and Mike. If that’s what’s meant to be.

“Regardless I hope Will finds love as well as love for himself and who he really is. No-one should feel ashamed for who they are and who they love,” he added.

Let’s see what unfolds in Stranger Things season 5…

Stranger Things seasons 1-4 are now streaming worldwide on Netflix.
