Canadian born actor Steven Amell who plays the lead character Oliver Queen (Green Arrow) on the TV superhero series Arrow has come under fire from that ever increasing, humorless, thin skinned, stick up their asses section of the LGBT community we call Social Justice Warriors all because of a tee shirt he wore to Toronto Pride.
His shirt stated “I’m not gay but $20 is $20”, a comedic reference to being gay for pay, or straight guys being willing to engage in same-sex acts for money. (although many do for free.) But this has some in our community reaching for their smelling and going the faux outrage route.
Said Mickey Keating in Instinct: The shirt choice is just, stupid. That shirt is basically saying you’ll be gay for (low) pay. I can’t believe these shirts are still in circulation

Oh the drama! Oh the outrage! Oh the scandal! How triggering!
So what do you think? Did this hunky LGBT ally make a major fashion faux pas? Or are you standing up and waving a $20.00 bill?
