Actor Tom Holland, known for his role as Spider-Man, has faced backlash from some fans after it was revealed that he will be portraying a gay character in an upcoming TV show, Your Content has learned.

Holland’s participation in the Apple TV series titled “The Crowded Room” drew controversy when a scene featuring intimate moments between him and another man surfaced online.

Social media platforms became a breeding ground for outrage, with some users expressing their disapproval of Holland’s new role. One tweet, using the hashtag #NotMySpiderMan, read, “Tom Gone Wrong.” Another comment humorously stated, “LMAOOOOOOO dis is really somebody’s favorite Spider-Man.”

The backlash appears to stem from a combination of unabashed homophobia and the belief that only a gay actor should portray a gay character. However, many passionate supporters of Holland came to his defense, pointing out that previous actors who portrayed Spider-Man, such as Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, had also taken on LGBTQ roles.

One fan countered the criticism, stating, “For the people commenting on Tom Holland’s scene in his new show ‘The Crowded Room,’ take a look at the other Spider-Man actors… It’s called acting.”
