Did Nickelodeon Just Confirm SpongeBob SquarePants is Gay?!

Nickelodeon may have just confirmed to fans that the character SpongeBob SquarePants is gay. That’s at least how fans are interpreting the network’s latest tweet.

The @Nickelodeon Twitter account posted a Pride month message that seemingly confirmed the lovable character’s sexuality.

“Celebrating #Pride with the LGBTQ+ community and their allies this month and every month 🌈,” the network captioned the tweet, which included photos of SpongeBob, Henry Danger‘s Schwoz Schwartz, and Legend of Korra‘s Korra.

Korra is known to be gay or bisexual and Schwoz is played by transgender actor Michael D. Cohen. So, is SpongeBob part of the LGBTQ+ community as well?

SpongeBob’s sexuality has been in question for years and the show’s creator Stephen Hillenburg actually has said that the character is asexual, not gay.
