A representative for the actor was quick to state that Bassett did not identify as queer. But Bassett himself wanted to comment on the matter. He did it on his social networks, with a message in which he complains about speculation about his sexuality and in which he sends his fans a message of tolerance, respect and tells them that it is okay to take time to find out who he is.

I want to say thanks to those who have supported love and acceptance. Toxicity , hatred and negativity say less about the subject, but they say much more about those who let go. It is 2021. We are the generation of love and growth, it is time to start acting as such. It does not matter if you love me or hate me , or condemn me to hell, I love you all equally. Love whom you love without shame. It is good that you continue to discover who you are. Life is too short to let ignorance and hatred win. I choose the masterr “.
