While we’re all stuck in our homes, social distancing and looking at social media, some people are using this time to open up. That’s certainly the case for Auli’i Cravalho.
On Thursday, the Moana star tweeted at a fan who asked her on Twitter “Do u like girls.” The star replied, simply redirecting them to another social media app, saying, “If I may escort you to my TikTok…” and adding her username.
It was on TikTok where Cravalho officially came out as bisexual on Thursday, when she posted a video of herself captioned “5:53a thirst trap,” lip-syncing to a section of Eminem‘s “Those Kinda Nights” and sending a pretty clear message to fans. “‘Seriously though, jokes aside, how you doin’? You straight?’/ She said, ‘No, I’m bi,'” the star mouthed along. “She said, ‘Are you drunk?,’ I said, ‘No, I’m high’/ ‘I’m checkin’ out the chick,’ she said, ‘So am I.'”
Cravalho isn’t the only star to come out during self-isolation: On Wednesday, viral pop singer Rebecca Black came out as queer, telling the hosts of the Dating Straight podcast that “To me, the word ‘queer’ feels really nice. I have dated a lot of different types of people, and I just don’t really know what the future holds.”
