    This is pretty routine for John. He does the same thing at ComicCon in San Diego, and last year kissed a guy in the audience during the panel. There’s lots of humor involved, and (as far as I could tell) no one in the audience was offended.

    These kind of overt and unwanted Homosexual advances could get him into big trouble with the Police.

  • Connie

    Anyone who knows John’s panels knows he does this kind of thing often. It’s part of the draw… The didn’t seem to mind… It’s all good. :)

  • Trish

    It doesn’t matter if the audience isn’t offended, it’s wrong (and kinda illegal), all it takes is one person to file a complaint and he could be in big trouble and it won’t be so fun anymore

    He can grab my ass anytime. I’ll grab his crotch.


    @Derek117: If this faggo came to America to try that, America would find it and kill it. That would be a guarantee.

    Use guys all need to chill, i was at the Perth Supanova 2014 and i was 2 seats behind the rows and i saw he did that. That fan knew what he was in for, it was going to be inappropriate but that’s John Barrowman for you, if you don’t like him then don’t bother reading this. He was so nice and a lovely person.

    That fan ask if he could sing with john, do a phantom of the opera song and they did and the fan was singing and john grab his crotch and the fan didn’t mind he was John Barrowman fan club.

    Everyone knows John does this sort of thing – if you don’t like it don’t go to see him!!! He’s a really good man – does an amazing amount for charity. This is all just part of his love for life!! I’ve met him several times – he has a way of summing people up and never goes further than that person wants. A truly lovely man. For the record I’m not a besotted fan defending him – I’m in my 70s and know the difference between fun and sleaze when I see it.

    @AMERICAN SHORES: You’re a special kind of stupid, aren’t you. The poster you replied to just told you that he did something like that at the San Diego Comic Con. Last I checked, San Diego is part of America.

  • Pat

    @Tim: John grew up in America from about age 9 and has a home there. His parents and siblings live there – ‘American Shores’ is talking nonsense – John will know what he can do
