Colton Underwood has no time for “inappropriate” questions about his sex life after coming out as gay last month.
The 29-year-old former Bachelor was left incensed when, during an Instagram Q&A session, a fan asked how many men he’s “done things with”.
These kinds of personal questions, he fumed, are ones he will not be entertaining.
“Let me vent for a second,” he said on a lengthy Instagram Story, according to Us Weekly.
“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.”
He reflected on how being the “virgin Bachelor” often emboldened people to ask him invasive questions.
“I never asked to be labelled as the virgin Bachelor and have people feel the security to ask me questions about my sex life,” he said.
“It just happened and during that time I thought I had no other choice but to just go with it the network would be mad. I know differently now.
“I’ll share what I want and this won’t be one of those things.”
“I know differently now,” he added. “I’ll share what I want and this won’t be one of those things.”
Colton Underwood came out in a sprawling interview with Good Morning America in April.
Weeks later, he shared a candid chat with Variety and said that he did “hook up” with men before being tapped for The Bachelorette.
“I’ll say this,” he said. “I was ‘the Virgin Bachelor’ but I did experiment with men prior to being on The Bachelorette.
“When I say hookups, not sex. I want to make that very clear that I did not have sex with a man, prior to that.”
