David Yost, former Blue Power Ranger, comes out, cites homophobic remarks from producers


As you probably don’t know, Power Rangers is entering its 17th season after being bought back from Disney by Saban. However, you all remember Billy, pictured about. Billy, played by David Yost, was the original Blue Power Ranger. In a recent interview with a podcast, not only has David Yost come out, but also cites homophobic remarks as reasons for wanting to leave the show. (I’m so sorry for linking to TMZ).

Some quotes from the interview:

“I was called ‘faggot’ one too many times [by the show’s] creators, producers, writers, directors.”

“I know that my co-stars were called in a couple of times to different producers’ offices and questioned about my sexuality, which is kind of a humiliating experience to find that out.”

Awful.

Power Rangers will premiere this spring again on Nick.
