Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey confuses fans with Snapchat saying ‘I’m gay!’ (VIDEO)

Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey has fans confused as he appeared to come out as gay on Snapchat.

In a video posted on Friday the actor films a street sign for Gay Street, and proclaims “I am this, and this is me. I’ve never felt more alive!… I’m gay!”

But representatives for the actor who rose to fame after playing J Lo’s on-screen son in Maid in Manhattan, have denied that he came out as gay.

An MTV communications department staff member told Fusion that they believed Posey meant gay “in the context of ‘I’m happy,’ not as a coming out.”

The actor’s PR firm is yet to comment.

Fans naturally took to social media to speculate on the meaning behind the video.

Some have been quick to call him out for “mocking” the LGBT community with the tone of the video. Others just want him to clarify what he meant in the video.

One Twitter user wrote: “If Tyler Posey was lying about being gay, the way he was doing it felt kind of like he was mocking us? And I’m not down for that.”

In a second video, Posey filmed a lamp saying: “look at that thing… Ah man, am I happy! I’ve never felt more like me than I do now! I’m lamp!”

Posey is not the first Teen Wolf star to come out as gay ambiguously.

Colton Haynes wrote a post on Tumblr in January which left fans with a lot of questions and appeared to confirm that he was gay.

He later confirmed that he is gay in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

Their co-star Charlie Carver previously came out as gay.
