Lukas Gage has been a go-to actor in Hollywood for playing gay roles. The 27-year-old actor's biggest role to date was the partying assistant to hotel director Armond (Murray Bartlett) on HBO's "The White Lotus." When Armond goes on a bender after finding a bag of party drugs, Gage joins in, leading to one of the most talked-about scenes this past year in which Bartlett was caught rimming Gage.

"The Angelyne' actor has never spoken publicly about his sexuality, but he has played several LGBTQIA+ characters over the years, including Derek on 'Love, Victor' and Logan on 'Into the Dark.' In 'The White Lotus,' his character Dillon's sexuality wasn't overtly established, but Dillon eventually got intimate with Armond his boss at the resort," writes US Weekly.

"Gage later said that Dillon's graphic sex scene was partially his idea. 'In the script, it was sex,'" the 
"Supergirl" star recalled during a January appearance on 'Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.' "We've seen sex on TV. Let's have some ass eating."

But on Thursday, Gage came under fire on social media when Twitter user @JamesWuske tweeted: "If Hollywood can stop hiring non LGBTQIA+ actors like @lukasgage to play LGBTQIA+ characters, that would be great. He has played 4 so far. 1 was enough."

Gage responded with: "You don't know my alphabet."

To which Camden JW responded: "Then please, enlighten the whole world."

Gage responded with a simple: "No," followed by a heart emoji.

Others on Twitter came to Gage's defense:
