"Spud" star Troye Sivan recently interviewed with LGBTQI+ New Zealand publication Express and dragged the reporter on Twitter for asking an inappropriate question.
In the two-page spread interview, Matt Fistonich asked a range of questions from what he thought of the Kiwi accent, talking about his celebrity crush - which is Shawn Mendes, how he met his boyfriend, working on "Boy Erased" and his recent Bloom tour.
However, in the quick-fire question portion, Fistonich decided to ask whether he's a top or a bottom, to which the "Bite" singer politely passed on answering.
After a Twitter user posted the interview with the caption "who’s this interviewer the bar is on the floor" on Wednesday, the South African-Australia singer replied to them and said: "I thought about asking the interviewer about his absolute fave sex position after that last question, but then I remembered how wildly invasive, strange and inappropriate that would be.
Didn’t stop him though!"

The "Bloom" singer's fans also commented on the inappropriate nature of the question.

It's so disgusting how people think that it's okay to ask these sexual questions to a gay person because they only see homosexuality sex and nothing more. I'm so sorry that this happened Troye.— 𝒄𝒂𝒕 ˚₊· (@jikookandsprite) August 28, 2019
