Nick Jonas plays a closeted MMA fighter in Kingdom.

Fans of TV show Kingdom have expressed outrage at the show’s first gay sex scene to feature Nick Jonas’ character Nate Kulina.



The character – who continues to struggle with his sexuality – was drugged and violated in the show’s latest episode.

The episode – titled ‘No Fault’ – saw Nate getting drugged at a party, before ending up in a bedroom with a man and a woman whom he went on to have a threesome with.

The next day, the character is to shown to feel violated by the encounter – upset and angry that he’s been a victim of a sexual assault.

After months of wondering whether or not the character would ever get the chance to live out his same-sex desires, fans were disappointed when the big moment finally arrived in such a horrific way.

“When we said we hoped Nate got a storyline this season this isn’t what we meant, but it’s a start,” wrote one Twitter user.

“Nick’s character has been known to the audience to be gay for three years now, and this is what they’re doing to his character?” wrote another.

“His first on-screen action with a guy was an assault and it still involved him mostly [with] the girl?”

Earlier this year, Jonas insisted that he’s not trying to “gay-bait” fans by making ambiguous comments about his sexuality.

The former Disney star found fame with his family band the Jonas Brothers – but has enjoyed a renaissance both as an actor and a solo musician.

Throughout solo later career he has found many ways to voice his appreciation for his large gay fanbase; playing gay characters in both ‘Kingdom’ and ‘Scream Queens’, performing at many gay venues and Pride events, appearing on the cover of Attitude magazine, and stripping off repeatedly.

However, Jonas argued that he “open and comfortable about loving my fan base, gay or straight, because to me there is no difference, it is my fan base.”
