“In a perfect world,” going out “of same-sex celebrity relationships should be a redundant concept in 2022,” Hornery wrote. “Love is love, isn’t it?”
“A big mistake,” Hornery said in a deleted column, adding that Wilson “chosen to guzzle the story” by first revealing her relationship on Instagram.
This column has received online criticism from Wilson’s fans, other journalists, and members of the LGBTQ community. They state that the decisions that come out and when they do so are personal. Wilson had previously shared his photos online with Agruma, but she didn’t publicly share what they were dating.

Wilson’s representative declined to comment on Monday, and Agruma did not immediately respond to the request for comment.Focusing on online criticism, Wilson Tweet on Sunday “It was a very difficult situation,” she said, “I was trying to handle it gracefully.”
Homosexual Hornery wrote in a celebrity column on Saturday’s “Private Sydney” that Wilson’s “modest, genuine, honest questions were overwhelming in our view.” ..

In a new column Honary, published Monday, said the newspaper “wrongly handled the steps in our approach,” and said the original column had been removed from the Morning Herald website. The new column was headed “I made a mistake in Rebel Wilson, so I’ll learn from it.”
“I really regret that the rebels found this difficult,” Hornery wrote. “That wasn’t my intention. But I see her treating it all with extraordinary elegance. As a gay man, I know how serious discrimination is. The last thing I’ve ever wanted to do is to give that pain to someone else. “
When asked to comment, Honary said he had nothing to add other than what he wrote in his column on Monday. Efforts to reach the Sydney Morning Herald on Monday have failed.
In the statement, Kathy Lena, National LGBTQ Task Force“It’s an individual that doesn’t come out in their own words, even when it’s a positive, festive, inspirational act, as Wilson’s coming-out post was on so many people. You can challenge yourself and professionally. “
“We’ve seen generations of young people, and most people, cheer and live their lives when celebrities come out, but anti-counterfeiting that can have a number of implications for our lives. We know that there are still LGBTQ emotions and reactions, “she said. ..

In a new column, Honary contacted Wilson’s management by email Thursday morning, asking if he would like to comment on the relationship, and said the deadline was 1:00 pm on Friday. He said there were several sources confirming the relationship, but he was seeking comments “for transparency and impartiality.”
The next morning, Wilson shared her Instagram post.
“I didn’t get a reply, it was entirely a rebel’s right,” Hornery wrote. He said that in the future, this paper will pay more attention to stories that include people’s sexuality. “It’s not Herald’s job to’purge’people, and it’s not what we’re trying to do. But I understand why my email is considered a threat. The framing of it was wrong. “
But Shields wrote, “It’s wrong to say that Herald” kicked Wilson out. “
He said the columnist “simply asked questions and included a deadline for answers as standard practice.”
“I hadn’t decided whether or what to publish,” Shields wrote, which would have taken her reaction into account. “Wilson has decided to publicly disclose her new partner, which has been a feature of her social media accounts for months.”
