Teen Wolf's Tyler Posey has taken to Twitter to clarify comments and apologise to anyone offended by that 'coming out' video he posted on Snapchat this weekend.

As you probably read about here, the whole internet was pretty confused when Tyler posted a video that seemed to suggest he was revealing details about his sexuality to fans.

In the short snap, he is seen by a road sign labeled 'Gay Street' and says:  "This is me. I am this and this is me. I've never felt more alive.

He then turned to the camera and said: "I'm gay!"

However, it later turned out this wasn't an earnest message for fans but all meant in the 'I'm happy' sense of the phrase, which he illustrated posting exactly the same video but with a bedside light, finally proclaiming: "I am lamp!"

Many were uncomfortable with the video as while he may have meant it in a jokey sense, coming out is not always an easy experience and is something many LGBT people out there have and are struggling with.

Realising this after posting the initial snaps, Tyler has now apologised and took to Twitter to say: "I am a big proponent of love over hate, and standing together during divisive times.

"Although I'm not gay, I fully support the LGBTQ community. This was a moment intended to reflect that.

"And everyone, I am truly sorry to the people I've offended or lessened how big coming out is," he adds. "I just want to spread love in this world."
