Is Chris Jericho Gay?
It’s not uncommon for fans to speculate about whether or not a celebrity is straight, gay, or bi. Jericho has been married to Jessica Lockhart for 17 years, so you can conclude that he is not gay. However, he did have a run-in with the LGBT community when he made some insulting remarks about Muslims and gays on stage. He apologized, however, but the GLAAD described this as a hollow apology.
