It's always something like this. He gives out a fuckton of short interviews from magazines and websites from all over the world and he has to be positive and supportive throughout it all.
Some fuckwit reporter goes "how would you feel about Spider-man being gay?" - of course he's gonna go something like "sure, I'd have no problem with that, that'd be great", for what the hell else is he gonna say?
And then the click-bait sites latch on to that one answer and makes it seem like he's on a crusade to turn Spider-man gay, because that means they get some hits from the first "story" and then more hits when they get to write about all the evil people who're against a gay Spider-man and thus against all gay people.
