“I don’t think he should be ‘cancelled,’ I just think he should address all the things that have been said about him,” another user commented.

Read all the accusations against Matthew in this thread on Pinterest.

The thread essentially details claims that Matthew has offended members of the LGBTQ community with his words.

Most notably, in an interview (which can be viewed in the thread and on Pinterest), Matthew describes his ideal woman as follows: “I am wary of actors, convicts, and lesbians but don’t rule them out totally.”

Some have speculated that his attitude against the LGBTQ population is revealed by his grouping “lesbians” with “felons.”

The thread attacks him for cultural appropriation and his choice of language in interviews. It even includes photos of him modelling an Indian headdress.
