Fans accuse Almasi of Machachari of being gay after sharing photo with unidentified man

Former Machahri actor, Ian Munene popularly known as Almasi has always been on the receiving end of harsh criticism due to his gender-fluid fashion.

And when he posted a photo of himself with an unidentified man, fans were quick to jump into conclusion and assume that the guy in the picture was his boyfriend.

Eternal Friends to Eat Together, Pray Together, Slay Together 🙈☺️❤️ #Rafikiiiiii” Read his caption.

Netizens were not happy with him posting the picture as fans went overhead and started questioning his sexuality again.

One of the fans identified as Santi 108, went ahead to ask him whether they were together but Almasi replied stating that the man in the picture was his brother.

No judging folks

The actor addressed the rumors saying that he had realised that people who loved judging others had the biggest issues in themselves. He called out his haters saying they had an option of unfollowing him since he doesn't love rude people.

"I’m at a space in my life where I’m not going to allow people’s thoughts, opinions or facts influence the person that I am. I realize that the ones who judge others are the ones who have the biggest issues in themselves and I pray that they can sort em out instead of being disrespectful towards other souls. So im finna love myself some more now and I want you to love yourself too. So no judging folks, if you’re gonna judge me or judge my people for what and who they are then please the unfollow button is nice and blue and you can flick it with sas. I love being with people who are kind and not mean asses. " Read one of his posts.

This is not the first time the actor has been accused of being gay. Over the years, Almasi has been bullied and trolled over his lifestyle choices. People who are uncomfortable with his lifestyle have even been dishing out homophobic comments on his Instagram page.

Here are some of the comments.
