Earlier today, Nickelodeon tweeted a post honouring the LGBTQIA community and celebrating pride month. All of the characters mentioned in this tweet were featured in rainbow hues.
Spongebob is gay 🙌🏻🌈— Roly West (@RolyUnGashaa) June 13, 2020
Yup, you heard that right, a lot of fan theories suggest that SpongeBob might be gay and the cartoon channel might have just unofficially announced his coming out.
However, Nickelodeon disabled comments on their tweet after their mic drop moment. But we could not be happier!
Netizen's reaction to SpongeBob's unofficial coming out tweet is everything:

I watched Spongebob when I was a kid.— James Tulp (@jamestulp) June 14, 2020
Never once did I consider him gay or straight.
Never once did I consider there was anything sexual about him at all.
Because I was a child, watching a children's show, AND HE'S A SPONGE.
I don’t care if Spongebob is gay, straight, bi, or poly he taught me that “I’m ugly and I’m proud” for that I owe him my life— Michael Tannenbaum (@iamTannenbaum) June 13, 2020

Well, here's to hoping that SpongeBob is celebrating pride month and hosting various pride parades in Bikini Bottom.
