Blue Power Ranger

REFUSES REUNION SHOW

I Won't Forgive 'Abusive' Producers

Go Go ... SCREW YOURSELVES -- that's the message the Blue Power Ranger sent to producers who asked him to participate in a reunion episode, claiming he's still pissed about the homophobic "abuse" he endured back in the day.

David Yost -- an openly gay actor who was on the show from 1993 to 1996 -- says he was contacted to appear on an episode of "Power Rangers Megaforce" ... along with other members of the original cast.

But Yost kicked the offer to the curb like it was a member of the Putty Patrol -- explaining on Twitter that he's "Done with abusive relationships."

As TMZ previously reported, Yost had major beef with "Rangers" brass back in the day, claiming he quit the show after years of negative abuse. Specifically he says producers called him the F-word.

The company behind "Rangers" never officially responded to Yost's allegations -- but one producer told us Yost had always been a "pain in the ass" on the set.

Yet, when I saw him at WONDERCON in Anaheim, CA in March, he was signing pictures of himself as the Blue Ranger. Even his NOH8 pic has a Blue Power Ranger action figure in it.

The producer that said "Yost had always been a pain in the ass on the set, has made it crystal clear that they cannot even demonstrate the maturity and professionalism necessary to result in a positive image for the brand, and by choosing to use inappropriate language in a public statement, the argument by David Yost is proven``.

I think that they will manage to put the show on without him; all they have to do is get another guy to put the mask on. LMAO
