Clerks director Kevin Smith comes out as ‘bi-curious but not brave enough’ after Twitter account is hacked
Screenwriter and director Kevin Smith, best known for the films Clerks, Dogma and Red State, had his Twitter account hacked earlier today, with a hacker posting a fake coming-out tweet on his behalf.
‘I have never told anyone this not even my family or close friends,’ the hacker tweeted using his account, ‘Before this comes out I want to state that I am a gay proud man. #fear.’
However Smith later regained control of the account and confirmed it had been hacked.
‘Not me. Been hacked,’ Smith tweeted about an hour-and-a-half later, ‘Proud to be bi-curious, not brave enough to commit.’
Smith has been open about having a number of close gay friends and an openly gay brother, and has had numerous online and in person confrontations with members of the Westboro Baptist Church, who were the inspiration for his film Red State, over their anti-gay views.
He has been happily married to his wife Jennifer Schwalbach Smith for 15 years with whom he has a teenage daughter, though he has often joked that he is an honorary heterosexual member of the bear community.
