It all started on Friday when Posey posted a Snapchat video of himself with a group of friends walking past a street sign that read "Gay St”. In the video Posey is heard saying: “This is me. I am this and this is me. I've never felt more alive.”
He then filmed himself shouting, ”I'm gay!” The video caused some fans on Twitter to believe that the actor had come out as gay, but a source later told E! News, ”Tyler did not 'come out' on Snapchat.”
Taking to Twitter on Saturday, the actor apologised to anyone who was offended by the video. “I am a big proponent of love over hate, and standing together during divisive times,” he tweeted.
“Although I'm not gay, I fully support the LGBTQ community. “This was a moment intended to reflect that. And everyone, I am truly sorry to the people I've offended or lessened how big coming out is. I just want to spread love in this world.”
Posey is best known for playing Scott McCall in MTV series 'Teen Wolf'. He previously dated popstar Miley Cyrus and was engaged to longtime girlfriend Seana Gorlick before they split in 2014.
