YouTuber Austin Rhodes, who you may recognize from a YouTube video in which he and his twin brother, Aaron, came out to their father, has shared a new video in which he calls out skeptics who are criticizing him for dating a man nearly twice his age.
The 21-year-old vlogger has been in a relationship with hair stylist Justin Anderson for the past three years.
“Let’s just have a discussion about it because I feel like this is always something that comes up on all of our comments,” he says in the video.
“I understand where people come from when it’s not like ‘typical’ and whatever, but everyone’s relationship is so different.
“What works for me and my boyfriend is going to be totally different from what works for somebody else.
“For anyone to judge from the outside when they don’t know how the two people are with each other. Plus, most people commenting don’t even know that we’ve been together for three years.”
