Billy Eichner clarifies comment about LGBTQ+ films following backlash

In an interview for Variety to promote his new movie Bros, the first gay romantic comedy from a major studio featuring an almost entirely LGBTQ+ cast the comedian claimed the release of the feature in cinemas later this month will be "a historic moment". Billy also noted that Bros is not an indie movie or "some streaming thing which feels disposable," and later, fans accused him of shading gay romcom Fire Island - which was released on Hulu in June. In response, the Billy on the Street star took to Twitter on Wednesday to explain what he meant.
