"This is my favorite IG account," someone wrote in response to a recent post. Thank you. I want you to know I saw that. I see the positive comments and DMs (a lot of them anyway). Affectionate. Supportive. Appreciated (by me). Obviously there are comments and DMs I appreciate less. Who are these people? On my page? What backwards-ass, Stone Age values country did they crawl out of? The U.S.? I won't be disappearing (too many cool things to repost). The ability to comment likely will. I'm not concerned for myself. I can't be "bullied" in this space. I have too much power. "Delete. Block. Deactivate." Etc. But I take seriously the possibility of queer kids visiting here, recently out of the closet or exploring the idea… I don't want them exposed to bullshit. On a related note… I'm out. Of PB. Officially. Not bec of static on social media (although that has centered the issue). I just don't want to play straight characters. Their stories have been told (and told). So. No more Michael. If you were a fan of the show, hoping for additional seasons… I understand this is disappointing. I'm sorry. If you're hot and bothered bec you fell in love with a fictional straight man played by a real gay one… That's your work. – W.M. 🏳️🌈

Then it returned with the new season in 2017. In 2005 when this Prison Break was created under the direction of Paul Scheuring, it got excellent reviews from the audiences. As featured by Wentworth Miller in the series, Michael’s character comes along with Dominic Purcell as his brother, who was needed to get out of Prison.
Both the characters reprised their role in the first five seasons, but the actor denied playing straight characters when it comes to the sixth season. His recent Instagram post depicted as there is no more Michael in the continuous story. He also felt sorry for his fans who beloved him as an actor.

Now it is crystal clear that but Micheal is not going to play Straight roles. As being a gay man, he wanted to act more in gay characters. However, he apologized to his fan but also asked them to feel him thoroughly.
