The Gay Rumors Started After Drew Faked Being Homosexual During A Segment Of The Drew Carey Show
Even though the 65-year-old has dated several women in the past, he once faked being gay during an episode of the show which was titled Man’s Best Same-Sex Companion. In the episode, Carey found out that his dog Speedy’s hip problem is getting worse, costing around $2700 for the operation.
But unfortunately, he doesn’t have the money. So, one of Drew’s colleagues, Nora suggests he use the company’s insurance to pay for it. However, there is a catch. The company only provides same-sex health benefits.
So, to get the money the comedian had to prove he was gay by hiring Oswald to be his lover. Soon after the episode aired fans started making assumptions that he might be gay in real life as well. The discussion has been going on for years and some fans even took it to Twitter with one tweeting he had rewatched an episode where Carey gets kicked out of the scouts for being gay.
Similarly, another user shared a short clip of one of the episodes of the show and called him a gay icon.
