‘Gay Bachelor’ Robert Sepulveda Jr. Threatens Legal Action Despite Having No Case

by matt baume September 21, 2016


As you’ll recall, Robert Sepulveda Jr. has been fumbling his way through the news, first as the contestant on Logo’s Bachelor clone; then for having worked as an escort; then for having been kind of sex-negative about the whole thing; and also for having run a rainbow-crosswalk nonprofit that may or may not still exist.

His latest misadventure: making noise about suing online bullies, or something.

It’s clear that he doesn’t have the strongest grasp on how the law works. But that didn’t stop him from posting a legal threat to Instagram:

“If you come fro me, we will come for you and prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law,” he wrote. (It’s worth noting that the grammar-checker underlined “prosecute” just now, suggesting that it be changed to “persecute.”)

Who exactly does he intend to “prosecute”? Who knows. As a lawyer pointed out to The Wrap, he’d have to prove that people are spreading lies about him, and that he’s not a public figure. Good luck.

Maybe Robert’s miffed that people are still bringing up his sex worker past. And yes, there is certainly an unfortunate stigma attached to that kind of work, and if he wants to move on — fine, he should be able to do so. But that doesn’t mean he can stop people from talking about it.
