'Fred' from Nickelodeon

I'm Gay

Won't Bang Judy After All

breaking news



Lucas Cruikshank -- the viral video star who played the ultra-hyper "Fred" character in a Nickelodeon movie and several shows  -- has revealed he's gay ... and naturally, he posted his coming out video on YouTube.

The 19-year-old actor made the announcement during a short clip with his friend Jennifer Veal -- who starred in the Disney Channel show, "Jessie."

During the video, Lucas says his closest friends and family members have known about his sexuality for years ... but he never felt the need to make an announcement to the world.

At one point, Lucas turns to Jennifer and asks, "How come you didn't have to make a video saying you're straight?"

FYI -- Lucas shot to superstardom by creating several YouTube videos featuring his annoying "Fred" character ... who had a crush on a girl named Judy.  For some reason, they never hooked up.

Sorry Lucas aka Fred, I'm sorry to be the one to tell you that your 15minutes are up, and coming out on youtube is not going to extend that time.

If you're a real actor, get work, and go to work. Your sexual orientation doesn't matter to Hollywood. Be a real actor now.

Seriously, this was the worst kept secret. But in the same breath, who cares what his sexual preference is. He's still a child of God. Save your hatred for those who deserve it....like murderers and child abusers. And yes, I know they are children of God as well, but they have no reservation in heaven, IMO.

You anti gay people spewing hate are pathetic. And no, I'm not gay by any stretch. So save the "you must be gay, too" comments. I hope you haters end up being parents to gay children. Maybe your position will change a bit. Then again, maybe it won't and you will go right on being losers.

I can't wait for the day when people won't have to announce that they are Gay. People should be judged by content of their character and not by their sexual orientation
