Was Noah Galvin offensive in his Vulture interview — or did he tell it like it is?

Where do we start with Noah Galvin's bridge-burning Vulture interview? The 22-year-old actor identifies as gay and plays a closeted-but-emerging gay teen on The Real O’Neals. He gave a blistering take on how gayness is handled in Hollywood and the media. 

Some people are applauding the young star's take-no-prisoners attitude and unscripted candor. But others are calling him a spoiled kid with little perspective and less empathy. Was Noah Galvin offensive in his Vulture interview — or did he tell it like it is?

He had quite a few eyebrow-raising moments. Galvin claimed Eric Stonestreet's beloved gay Modern Family character lacked "authenticity" — saying Stonestreet plays the role like "a caricature of a caricature of a stereotype of stereotype." 

Galvin took the issue of troubled gay kids reaching out to him for help seriously—but then he concluded with "I'm still figuring out my own bullshit. I've got struggles of my own. I don't have time to be your f*cking soothsayer." 

Galvin continued his criticisms by also bashing Arrow actor Colton Haynes’ method of coming out. Haynes alluded to being gay, but didn't quite say it. "That's not coming out. That's f*cking p*ssy bullshit." He also had some choice words for gay Hollywood: "In New York there is a healthy gay community, and that doesn't exist in L.A."

Galvin's supporters are applauding his honesty and candor. It's not often that any young actor speaks out so strongly about gayness and media culture. But when does candid and brash cross the line into callous and cruel? Many of the actor's critics think he's just too young and inexperienced to be so opinionated, and to pass judgment on others so harshly.
