JAKE ZYRUS Breaks Silence Amid Criticism Over Shirtless Photo
Ever since his controversial transformation last year, Jake Zyrus has received criticism from a lot of people for his decision to come out as a trans man.
Just last week, controversy surrounded him once more after a photo of the former Glee guest star working out at the gym without a shirt on went viral and drew flak from netizens.
Amid the backlash and criticism, the "DNM" singer took to Twitter to finally break his silence and extend his gratitude to his supporters who have stood by him all these years.
I used to be scared reading comments on social media, but I tried today and I am actually lucky to have people defend me. I don’t know who they are. But I am so happy there are people who have balls to stand up for their kababayan and educate people. Love you— Jake (@jakezyrus) October 18, 2018
Jake dropped his new song "Diamond" last month which marks his first English song since coming out.
He also released his first tell-all book "I Am Jake" which is out now!
