Ryan Sampson, who plays Grumio on the British ITV2 series Plebs, came out of the closet on Wednesday after receiving a DM on Instagram he deemed as homophobic. So as a response Sampson decided to introduce his boyfriend.
Tweeted Sampson: “Hi y’all. So. I was on Instagram and I looked at my direct messages and it turned out someone was trying to rope me in to some (pretty creaky) homophobic banter. Huh! So, for clarity, here’s a pic of me and the boyf. Just to, y’know… straighten that one out. As it were. ✌🏼”
Plebs is a modern take on ancient Rome. The show is in its fourth season. Here’s an old trailer.
