Aaron Sidwell is famous for playing hunky Bi-sexual Steven Beale in EastEnders and the actor has spoken out over the unacceptable comments and views of Christopher Biggins on Celebrity Big Brother.
Aaron was recently faced with a backlash after Steven came back to Albert Square dating Lauren Branning after seemingly coming out as gay when he was on the Square several years before.
EastEnders also faced a backlash after confused viewers demanded an explanation regarding Steven’s sexuality, something the soap so far have refused to comment on.
While fans were venting on social media about Sidwell’s character “changing” his sexuality the 27-year-old made a valid point on Twitter, saying: “Why does someone have to be gay or straight?! Why can’t they fall in love with who they fall in love with?! #FoodForThought #LoveisLove” (sic)
And now the father of two has spoken out once again over the stigma that often surrounds Bi-sexual people, this time commenting on the views of Christopher Biggins who was kicked off Celebrity Big Brother this weekend due to his views and comments about Bi-sexuals and Concentration Camps.
Once again taking to Twitter, Aaron Sidwell spoke out to say since he started playing a Bi-sexual character he has found that unfortunately these are the views of lots of people: “Playing a Bi sexual character I have found this to be the belief of a lot of people. So unaccepting” (sic)
