Aaron and Austin Rhodes are twin brothers from Los Angeles who run a Youtube channel. In their latest video, the twins decided to come out as gay to their fans, but before then, they also have to let their father know. The dad is in Ohio and so they tell him over the phone while the camera roll. The video has since gone viral with over 5 million views in 2 days!
Before Aaron could tell their dad the big news, they first break down in emotional tears of dread, but his answer got them crying again. You have to see it. Watch below....
For those who can't see the video, Aaron says;
“There’s some stuff coming out on YouTube soon and we just wanted to call and talk to you about it before. I don’t really know how else to put it but I’m gay, and um, Austin is too, and we just wanted to call and tell you.”
And their dad's response?
“It’s the way things are, you know. You grew up in a lot different generation to me. I just don’t really know what to say. You know I love you both, that’ll never change. You gotta live your lives.”
The description of the video goes thus - a message from the twins to all who see it.
With 2015 now here, we think it is time to finally just be ourselves. We hope by our actions today you can finish watching this video feeling encouraged and inspired. Thank you for all the support. We love you.
