Actor Alex Diaz admitted being bisexual on a lengthy Instagram post which he uploaded earlier this afternoon.
Alex’s coming out post instantly received massive support from his celebrity friends, followers and fans reminding him that he’s loved for who he is.
Aside from coming out, he also addressed the controversy he was recently caught up with.
Screenshots of Alex’s ‘indecent’ conversation with a fitness coach made rounds online last October 18. And in the photos, it showed a verified IG account of Alex asking the said coach if he’s open for “indecent proposals”. Alex then was accused of propositioning.
In the same conversation, Alex apologized after realizing what he has done, saying “sorry man basag ako pasensya na, hinahangaan ko lang fitness mo, pasensya na.”
After the issue blew up, Alex apologized as well on his IG post to his management, the brands he’s modelling for, to his supporters and family. And thanked everyone for being understanding and accepting him as a part of the “bisexual community.”
His full caption read: “Thank you for the thousands of messages of love and support all over twitter and my message requests here on instagram. I am going to release a full statement when the time is right but for now I would just like to say sorry and thank you.
“I ask forgiveness from my management, the brands, supporters, friends, my family and everyone else I let down by what I did and/or who I am. Im sorry, I was wrong in my actions and failed to uphold the values I so strongly try to convey online. It was not my intention to hurt anyone or elude the truth of who I am for all these years but rather a showbiz decisions based on the state of our nation in regards to acceptance and representation of who I am.
“But I sincerely thank everyone for not failing to remind me that I am human and that I too am loved. —Never again will I be shackled by the fear of what might be said about who I am for fear of losing my career and instead, I will seek help, heal and champion change, acceptance and representation for the bisexual community and/or anyone who is met with prejudice in our society.
“I see now that my actions are not caused by but rather the effect of the healthy suppression of all of who I am as a human being. Im in a better place now.”
Alex then hoped to continue his journey in the showbiz industry and promised that he will come back stronger because he learned his lesson.
“My passion is performing, making people happy & making people smile. My only hope is that I can continue to use this platform to do such in whatever new path this universe-given experience has opened up for me. For now, I will rest, reevaluate and come back stronger and better than ever. I love you all, I have learned and I am growing. thank you. 🌱🏳️🌈⚤.”
He was showered with messages of support on the comment section for bravely admitting his mistakes and finally embracing who he really is.
