"You don't know my alphabet."

On Thursday, one person called out actor Lukas Gage — who has not publicly stated his sexuality — for playing queer characters.

"If Hollywood can stop hiring non LGBTQIA+ actors like Lukas Gage to play LGBTQIA+ characters, that would be great. He has played four so far. One was enough," the tweet read.

The actor has, in fact, played multiple queer characters on TV shows including Love, Victor and The White Lotus.

Well, Lukas must've seen the tweet because he responded directly, saying, "You don't know my alphabet."

The person then responded, saying, "Then please, enlighten the whole world."

Lukas promptly responded, "No ❤️."

Two things: One, No one should be forced to reveal their sexuality, and two, queer people deserve to play queer roles.
