We were so proud of Bella Thorne when she came out as bisexual this year. Now, she’s opening up about how it shaped her future. In a chat with Paper, Bella Thorne admitted that being outspoken about her bisexuality had a few drawbacks for her career, despite the many pros coming out had for her.

ICYMI, Bella Thorne came out as bisexual via a Tweet following a Snapchat that appeared to show her kissing another girl. Since then, she’s been open about her identity, even celebrating her first Bi Visibility Day, like, awwww. We’re so here for it.

But according to a recent interview with Paper, Bella Thorne coming out did have some drawbacks. Why? Because some execs were less than pleased with how open she was being.

Thorne explained,

Like, UGH. We’re pissed off for her. Unfortunately biphobia is alive and well, and not everyone has progressed in the way we’d hope. We get why she’s so frustrated by it.

Still, Bella Thorne coming out really inspired so many of her fans.

Thorne told Paper,

We’re so annoyed at the ridiculous hate Thorne faced for coming out, but we’re thrilled to know that so many people shared their support for her, especially the young LGBTQ+ kids who feel safer and more empowered to be who they are.
