In the video, they talked about their first meeting. Likewise, Daniel also stated that they had four tequila sunrises that evening and were super drunk. Their photo went viral, and soon, everyone labeled them a potential gay couple.
But this is not the first instance where the veteran YouTuber faced gay allegations, throughout the past he has been rumored to be a gay individual. His way of presenting himself to the world has led fans to believe that he is homosexual.
They are taking his dressing and speaking style as a hint to call him out for his sexuality. But, just because someone likes to speak and dress up a certain way doesn’t make them gay.
He Addressed The Rumors In One Of His Vlogs Back In 2017
As most celebrities prefer to stay away from sexual preference rumors, Anthony doesn’t seem to do so. In March 2017, he released a YouTube video titled Am I Gay? In the video, he addressed the rumors and stated that he has been facing the question since he was a seven-year-old.
The star said one day when he took a purple Mickey Mouse printed lunch box to school, a classmate said why did he bring it. But, since Padilla liked the lunch box he said because it’s cool. However his friend said, that’s not cool because purple is gay.
In the video, he also talked about some of his girlfriends calling him gay because he cared about his hair, cleaned his room, and the way he dressed,
I’ve even had girlfriends who asked me if I was gay because they’ve never seen a straight guy care about his hair or the way he dressed. Or wanna keep his room really clean. Or, you know, I walked a certain way or I danced a certain way.
Further in the clip the Smosh: The Movie actor stated that he was tired of behaving the way people wanted him to behave.
I just want to be me. I just, I wanna embrace that. I know it’s easier said than done. F*ck it. Just be yourselves. We can’t be anything better than ourselves.
