Brett Gelman Gets Trolled for Declaring His Love for Byler

Date:  July 18, 2022

Brett Gelman who plays Murray Bauman in Stranger Things is being trolled for shipping Byler.

Since actor Noah Schnapp confirmed that Will Byers is gay and loves Mike, Byler has been making the social media circuit. On July 17, Gelman posted an official stance on his Twitter, declaring his advocacy for both the LGBTQ+ community and Byler. For those who are unfamiliar with Byler, a lot of fans are shipping the two characters Will Byers and best friend Mike Wheeler — hence, Byler.

In the initial tweet, Gelman wrote, "I am for Byler if Byler is for Byler. If it’s a match then it should be so. I’m not for Byler if Mike isn’t for it because then Will gets hurt. And I also don’t want El to have a broken heart. But if Byler is what is meant to be then I ship Byler BIG TIME!!!"

Needless to say that the actor received homophobic responses for his opinion. He replied to the trolls in a new tweet.

"It’s pretty pathetic that all you little homophobes think calling me gay is an insult. It’s a compliment. So thank you. I ship love in whatever form it takes baby. And y’all who don’t. Maybe you’re scared to look at something." 

The actor also clarified his stance on Mileven as he wrote, "Let me be clear that I also ship Eleven and Mike. If that’s what’s meant to be. Regardless I hope Will finds love as well as love for himself and who he really is. No one should feel ashamed for who they are and who they love."
