Bachelor Colton Underwood slams 'inappropriate' troll who asked how many men he's hooked up with after coming out as gay
BACHELOR star Colton Underwood has hit out in fury after being asked how many men he has "done stuff with" since coming out as gay.
Colton, 29, was asked the "inappropriate" question by a fan on Instagram and told his followers that he would not be answering it.
Taking aim at the person, Colton wrote: "Let me vent for a second.
"Questions like this are inappropriate. I understand you might know me from the bachelor where I shared a lot about my personal life.
"I have set boundaries and I'm respecting myself in a way that will lead me to a healthier life."
The former NLF hopeful continued: "I never asked to be labeled as the virgin bachelor and have people feel the security to ask me questions about my sex life.
"It just happened and during that time I thought I had no other choice but to just go with it and or the network would be mad. I know differently now.
"I'll share what I want and this won't be one of those things."
Colton, who starred in the 2019 series of The Bachelor, came out as gay in a candid interview on Good Morning America last month.
He began: "This year has been a lot for a lot of people. It's probably made a lot of people look in the mirror and confront what they were running from.
"For me, I've run from myself for a long time, and I've hated myself for a long time. I'm gay. And I came to terms with that earlier this year.
"The next step in all of this was letting people know. I'm still nervous, it's been a journey for sure."
He told Robin that he's now the "happiest and healthiest" he's ever been in his life after overcoming a bout of depression.
At one point, he claimed he would've rather die than admit that he was gay.
Since his GMA interview, Colton revealed that he made the personal announcement after someone “threatened” to release X-rated pictures taken without his consent.
“I’ll just say it. I, at one point, during my rock bottom and spiral, was getting blackmailed. Nobody knows I was blackmailed," he confessed to Variety.
Colton went on to explain that he secretly visited a male spa in Los Angeles – which is "known for its gay clientele" last year.
He said in the interview that he went to the spa “just to look” and admitted he “should never have been there".
Meanwhile, Colton's ex Cassie Randolph reportedly learned of his sexuality while watching his interview on television.
A source told People: "Cassie found out Colton is gay the same time that everyone else did. She's still processing it."
Following their rocky relationship, Cassie filed a restraining order, accusing Colton of placing a tracking device on her car, harassing and stalking her, and showing up at her parents' property.
She would later drop the restraining order.
The insider went on how Colton's interview brought Cassie to their difficult relationship sharing: "It was a very traumatic time for Cassie. It's tough to be in the headlines and revisit painful memories."
