In February, just a couple of weeks after the release of his first single in two years, “Light Switch,” Charlie Puth posted a rare TikTok of himself wearing clothes. “Alright, this filter is supposed to tell me if I’m headed for the top or if I’m going to hit rock bottom,” he says to the camera. The filter over his head scrolls past an emoji that says TOP and another with a B for “BOTTOM,” alternating between both, before landing on “TOP.” “Aaaand I’m going to go to the top,” he says with a smirk.
He then posted it to his Instagram story and his Twitter feed so as not to miss out on any opportunities to reach all the self-professed tops, bottoms, or vers people in the queer community—the people that the joke filter was actually designed for. Replies and quote tweets of the video were not so favorable.
“Please get a job,” read one. “I know queerbaiting when I see it,” read another. But one particular quote tweet summarized this particular kind of straight boy gag more succinctly than any of the others: “Charlie Puth has been baiting and terrorizing the gay community for MONTHS.”
