Although the true reason is unclear, a video of Bad Bunny affectionately interacting with another man has gone viral this week. In the clip, the Puerto Rican artist is seen hugging his companion and even kissing him on the cheek.

This gesture, which may not seem newsworthy at first glance, has generated millions of comments, fake news (with claims that the artist was in a «gay bar» without actually knowing where he was), and, of course, many reactions that have reignited the debate on homophobia in reggaeton.

Following the «controversy» (where the most controversial aspect is the reaction rather than Benito’s behavior), the ‘Mónaco’ singer has not made a public statement. In fact, the man accompanying Bad Bunny was his brother Bysael, with whom he has a close relationship. In fact, the star has a tattoo dedicated to him and his other brother, Bernie.

However, Bad Bunny has previously addressed the topic of bisexuality and was very clear about it.

Is Bad Bunny Bisexual?

In the reggaeton and hip hop world, where hypermasculinity predominates, Bad Bunny has never shied away from experimenting with gender expression. He has even been accused of queerbaiting, a marketing technique that involves promoting LGBTQ+ inclusivity for commercial gain.

The latest viral video has revived the debate about the artist’s sexual orientation. Recently, he was seen at the Met Gala with Kendall Jenner, with whom he supposedly spent the night. But that doesn’t mean Benito couldn’t be attracted to other men, of course.

In fact, the ‘ADIVINO’ singer already addressed the question of his bisexuality in 2020. According to an interview with Los Angeles Times, Benito wasn’t interested in defining his sexuality, although he did in a way.

«It does not define me. At the end of the day, I don’t know if in 20 years I will like a man. One never knows in life. But at the moment I am heterosexual and I like women,» he revealed at the time.

Despite being so clear, time passes, and he considered sex as something fluid. So today, perhaps his statements would be different. But only Bad Bunny himself can tell us that!
