Billy Eichner has called out Hollywood’s hypocritical and homophobic nature in a new interview. Over the last few years, LGBTQ+ representation in the entertainment sphere has slowly risen with projects like Heartstopper, RuPaul’s Drag Race, and Fire Island.

However, while there are more pieces of media for LGBTQ+ people to consume, queer stars like Eichner say the industry still has a long way to go.

While attending the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards, the Bobs Burgers star opened up to Page Six about the anti-gay side of the entertainment industry.  “Hollywood has often been very accepting on the surface but very homophobic underneath the surface and very hypocritical,” he revealed. “And a lot of decisions have been made based on fear – fears that I think are often irrational – and yet, people were scared.  “You know, a lot of it was based around what they think the mainstream audience would or would not accept.

And that’s pretty infuriating when you think about it.”  Eichner’s recent comments come a few months before his highly anticipated LGBTQ+ film Bros hits theatres.
