After this was posted, his fans left comments such as, “There are some people who don’t just lack gender equality education, but even also basic respect, they don’t understand.

  1. We dont have the right to judge one’s personality, all of us wants our own private life to be a private, so give it to aaron yan his own private life, so wether he is a gay or not its his own life, as long as he give good happiness to the people through his acting ang singing…

  2. No matter if he is or not..we will always support n stay with him forever.. Please don’t interfere his private life..

  3. I mean they shouldn’t have even asked him that in the first place but like Aaron actually responded and even if it was “blasting” them I mean I’d be fine with that because again he responded which also means he noticed their existence and most people won’t ever get that.

  4. Seriously ppl why cant you leave aarons private life alone its not our business what he does he is amazing in everything but for his private life that is for him to decided Aaron yan thank you for all you do and for your music and acting have made my days brighter. #1fan in usa

  5. What is important is that Mr.Aaron is a excellent actor and a singer .that’s is his private life .if he is gay or not is notnobody’s business. And for his parent i wish i have a son with that talent..and if he is gay be proud if him.
