Falahee began to surface his disagreement on the company’s decision to delete the scene in Italian airing in his Twitter account. “Do you really believe that audiences in Italy aren’t ‘ready’ for real life? Even Vatican has begun to open its eyes,” he wrote.

The situation was RaiDue initially decided to edit a particular scene wherein Connor Walsh (Jack Falahee), an openly gay law student, seduced his eventual boyfriend Oliver (Conrad Ricamora) to obtain information for the defense, People reported.

When Pete Nowalk knew about RaiDue’s move on editing the episode, he posted a video of the edited scene in his Twitter account. He later called the attention of the audiences to inform him if the episode has been edited in their country.

After series of appeals from How to Get Away With Murder Season 3 cast and crew as well as the fans around the world, RaiDue finally aired the episode without any edits made. The company issued an apology to the audiences afterwards.

With regards to Jack Falahee’s questionable sexuality after playing the role of an openly gay law student in the show, he denied telling the public about it.

“People have been asking me about my sexuality ever since that OUT interview. I’m very confident in my sexuality, and I really don’t like talking about my romantic life in the press,” he said during an interview.

“But I find it interesting, the fascination with picking apart our outing actors who play homosexual characters on TV or in films. We don’t have that same fascination with actors who are portraying heterosexual characters,” Falahee added.

For him, being a gay on screen is merely portraying his role in How to Get Away with Murder Season 3. If the audience questioned his sexuality because of it, his acting skills are amazingly effective.
