Hudson Yang is the lead character for the hit show “Fresh off the Boat” on ABC, which is based on Chef Eddie Huang’s memoir of the same name.
The show, which has been extremely successful on ABC, recently featured a gay character. After watching the episode, a Twitter user identifying himself as a “conservative Christian” sent the following tweet:
Watched #ABC #TheMiddle and #FreshOffTheBoat this evening. Both shows now have the gay kid that wants a date. As a conservative Christian it bothers me. Popular culture over represents the gays in our society. I’m not watching these shows any longer! #TCOT #CCOT pic.twitter.com/8slVFVVmyn
