SpongeBob SquarePants' sexuality has entered the chat -- and lo and behold, the fruity pineapple under the sea is, as many suspected for years, GAY.
Nickelodeon officially made the reveal Saturday in a tweet shouting out Pride month and attaching photos of three of their canon characters as a clear indicator that they're all part of the LGBTQ+ community, but without actually saying it outright.
The studio writes, "Celebrating #Pride with the LGBTQ+ community and their allies this month and every month 🌈."
If you can remember, Nickelodeon and the series creator Stephen Hillenburg came out strong in the early 2000s and explicitly said Spongebob was NOT gay ... but asexual!
