After Todrick Hall Called Out The LGBTQ+ Community For Hating His Reality Show He Received Even More Backlash On Twitter
Todrick Hall is a malcontent mess that nobody likes, yet for whatever reason, he still finds a way to flash those evil green eyes on our TV screens. Last year he amassed a new crop of enemies after his middle-school bully behavior on Celebrity Big Brother, but even after that, you’d think he’d take a pause to re-evaluate his life. But Todrick is back again with yet another attempt at reality TV, Real Friends of WeHo. And after its announcement, Todrick admitted he was stunned by the amount of hatred he received from the LGBTQ+ community. However, after he spoke out about his disappointment in them, they retaliated by reminding him of their continuous disappointment in him.
According to The Pink News, when it comes to people wanting to watch another series about vapid rich tricks throwing shade and drinks at one another, Todrick’s show is at the bottom of a dung-filled barrel protected by barbed wire. And Todrick was actually flabbergasted at the idea his thinning popularity isn’t the idea behind nobody wanting to support him, so instead, he blamed the pushback on self-hating members of the community who don’t want to see one of their own become successful.
As the first episode of The Real Friends of WeHo aired over the weekend, Hall himself responded to the negative reviews – and 1/10 IMDb rating – with a damning message aimed squarely at the queer community.
In a lengthy handwritten letter uploaded to Instagram, Hall addressed the “insane influx of hate” he’d received and expressed frustration that pushback to the show was coming from the LGBTQ+ community.
“When our LGBTQ+ show was announced, you’d think any pushback would’ve come from the church or conservatives upset with three hours of queer programming…But a closer look would show you that the call was coming from inside the house.”
Todrick went on to say he couldn’t believe that people within the community could condemn MTV’s first three-hour block of LGBTQ+ programming, and in the words of 98 Degrees, “It’s all because of YOU!” And Twitter has no problems expressing its disinterest in Real Friends featuring Todrick, Brad Goreski, Curtis Hamilton, Jaymes Vaughan, and Joey Zauzig.
Todrick Hall trying to spin the disdain for “Real Friends of WeHo” as “hate within our community” is the most tone-deaf thing.
We don’t want this show because it’s about typical WeHo gays. Show us someone interesting… and NOT self-absorbed.

Lmao @ Todrick Hall thinking the gays don’t like him out of self-hatred rather than the fact that he’s just a vile person.

And, of course, because attention fuels his battery like the little Energizer bunny he is, Todrick announced his frustrations with a skit dedicated to the movie that serves as the Bible for his life; Mean Girls.

I can appreciate a good Mean Girls reference as much as anyone else, but this wasn’t the one he should have gone with. Instead, it should have been one of his Real Friends cast-mates giving him a shady side-eye and saying, “The limit does not exist” Because when it comes to Todrick, there’s no amount of limits he will go to remain relevant even after we’ve informed him he can never sit with us.
