Joshua Rush Shuts Down Twitter Troll Who Said Disney Channel Set a 'Poor Example' Having a Gay Character on 'Andi Mack'

Joshua Rush very politely shut down a Twitter user, causing them to delete their tweet.

The 17-year-old Andi Mack star retweeted and responded to a tweet that said Disney set a poor example by making his character on the show, Cyrus, gay.

“I am very disappointed in the way this show has been directed there are some very good messages through this show for it’s young audience, but introducing gays is a very poor example to the young adults watching this show. Poor Choice Disney,” the tweet read.

Joshua responded politely, supporting the choice and the LGBTQ+ fans that could be watching.

“I’m sorry you feel that way. Here’s the thing though: gay kids are gonna exist no matter whether you like it or not,” he wrote. “And we need to support and love all kids in every way we can. So when someone realizes they are gay, I want them to identify with something so they’re not alone.”

After he shared the tweet and his response, the user deleted their tweet. But thanks to the internet, it’s still around.

“the internet is forever, you can’t delete a tweet and expect it to be gone lol,” Joshua added with a screenshot of the original tweet.
