‘Gotham’ Actor Robin Lord Taylor Slams ‘Homophobic’ Reactions to Gay Character: WATCH
Openly gay actor and the man behind Oswald Cobblepot on Fox’s TV drama Gotham hit back at viewers’ criticism surrounding his character’s romantic interest in another male character, Edward Nygma, calling the reactions “homophobic.”
At a March press conference, Robin Lord Taylor told film website Collider that his frustrations stem from comments he’s received characterizing the romantic interest as invalid because it does not exist in the canon DC comics universe.
“But, you know, when we introduce a queer storyline: ‘Eh, we love you and we love the show, but this really bothers me because you’re really messing with the character’s origins.’ And I’m like, ‘You’re homophobic, that’s homophobic,” Taylor said at the event.
