Tyler Posey is withdrawing his coming out -- 24 hours after a big bold video announcement that he's gay, but wants everyone to understand that he really does support the gay community.
The star of "Teen Wolf" posted a Snapchat on Friday that was VERY clear. He walked up to a street sign that read "Gay St." ... and yelled, "I'M GAY!!"
Turns out, Posey says ... he was only doing that to show, "I fully support the LGBTQ community. This was a moment intended to reflect that."
The 24-year-old actor clearly understands that what he did will piss off a lot of people. He added, "I am truly sorry to the people I've off offended or lessened how big coming out is. I just want to spread love in this world."
