Sam Heughan Spit At The Bullies Who Have Harassed Him For Years And Accuse Him Of Being A Closeted Gay Schemer
Closeted Gay Schemer IS the name of my one-gay quarantine band (featuring my dog on background vocals).
Sam Heughan, star of Starz’s Outlander, the love child of a romance novel cover and Quantum Leap, is spending the coronavirus lockdown in Hawaii, and that fact made some fans slap at him for treating this quarantine like a holiday and running off to paradise with a lady “porn star/escort.” Sam already slapped back, saying that he booked the trip to Hawaii when he learned that the television festival PaleyFest LA was postponed (he was scheduled to do the Outlander panel on March 19. The announcement of the postponement was made on March 11. The European travel ban went into effect on March 16, and California was ordered to stay their asses at home on March 19.) But like Florence Pugh before him, Sam has the time, so he let out a long smackdown on Twitter and Instagram, accusing crazies of harassing and stalking him ever since the show began. Sam also claims he and anyone he’s associated with has gotten death threats. Sam goes on to explain why he’s staying in Hawaii. Sam says he can’t get too much into the harassment, because he’s got your number, hussies, and his lawyers are involved.
There’s a batshit sector of the Outlander fandom, and they have looked at the Twihards like, “Skedaddle along, amateurs, we’ll show you how to really bring the insanity.” They are obsessed and spread their obsession on Tumblr and beyond. They have put a magnifying glass over every crevice of his life, and claim that he’s in Hawaii with “porn star” (she’s a model) Gia Marie. Gia Marie allegedly called out the hate in several Instagram Stories and posted screenshots of DMs she’s gotten from the crazies, where they call her a cunt repeatedly and tell her to do the world a favor and die of coronavirus or gonorrhea. Basically, Gia Marie’s trolls are the reincarnations of Shakespeare and are filling her DMs with beautiful sonnets.
There’s also been rumors and blind items claiming that Sam was out about his love for beautiful peen before Outlander, and after Outlander came out, he became the star of Inlander (sorry for that one) by going back into the closet and getting a monthly beard-leasing subscription from Beards ‘R Us.
In his message, Sam doesn’t mention Gia Marie, but does say his friends, family, and costars have been hit with abuse and that he knows who is responsible for accusing him of being a homo on the hush and for trying to get money out of fans. Sam also explains that he went to Hawaii before things got really bad and it wouldn’t be responsible for him to fly back to his home in the UK right now. If you don’t want to use your finger strength on clicking on the boxes of Sam’s tweet below, here’s his whole statement:
After the past six years of constant bullying, harassment, stalking and false narrative I am at a loss, upset, hurt and have to speak out. It’s affecting my life, mental state and is a daily concern. My costars, friends, family, myself, in fact anyone I’m associated with, has been subjected to personal slurs, shaming, abuse, death threats, stalking, sharing of private information and vile, false narrative. I’ve never spoken about it because I believe in humanity and have always hoped these bullies would just go away. I can’t elaborate for ongoing legal reasons but they are professionals: teachers, psychologists, adults who should know better.
Recently, these false claims vary from me manipulating fans, being a closet-homosexual, trying to mislead or exhort fans for money and disregarding Covid advice. I’ve done none of the above. I’m a normal guy and nothing like the characters I play. Most recently, some of you may know I’m currently self isolating in Hawaii. I came here before the travel ban. None of us knew how bad things would get as the situation worsened, upon the advice of everyone I trust, I decided to remain in a safe environment. It was a good decision. I’m safe, isolated, putting no one at risk and am not a burden to the locals. Several telling me they are desperate to sell their produce (as hotels and restaurants are now closed). We have not been asked to leave.
I’m nervous to take 3-5 flights back to the UK, around 20 hours on several planes, exposing myself to more danger, to be stuck in a city. This will only increase the risk to others and myself. Recently I was ill for 3 months and am being doubly careful. These bullies have created a false narrative, shared private information and abused my loved ones and I, consistently for the last six years on blogs and SM. I will not entertain it anymore and am blocking anyone that writes anything defamatory or abusive. Sending items or stalking my private accommodation, they have harassed my work colleagues and constantly tried to hack our email and personal accounts. I’m so hurt by this.
As an actor in these times, we feel impotent. We can’t do much but I have tried to use what leverage I have to provide a voice to charities that need it and hopefully a little entertainment or light relief. For those still unhappy I suggest you unfollow. To every fan that has supported me and the work I do, THANK YOU. I’m grateful, from the bottom of my heart. Stay safe and please be kind to yourself and each other. There’s so much more to concern ourselves with right now. See you around. xx
And here’s Sam’s tweet, which led to #WeStandWithSam trending on Twitter:

I mean, it seems like Sam just wanted to pull a Kristin Cavallari and spend this lockdown in ~paradise~, because many of us knew this shit was going to be bad in mid-March. But besides that, I understand why Sam said what he said. Although, he would’ve really gotten his point across if he said those words in a video… while topless… and covered in sweat from a workout… while standing in a well-lit room so we can see everything. But then again, if he did that, the crazies would analyze that video and say, “I spy a new freckle near Sam’s right nipple. But that’s not a freckle, it’s the start of a gonorrhea rash from being exposed to that SLUTTUBUS Gia Marie!”
