AceShowbiz - Oliver Stark has released a strong statement in response to trolls who criticized his character's bisexual storyline on the ABC drama "9-1-1."

On Saturday, April 6, Stark took to Instagram to address the backlash surrounding Buck's realization of his feelings for his friend Tommy. "If you are one of the smaller group of people commenting on my posts about how this has ruined the show, I would like you to know that I truly don't care," he wrote.

Stark emphasized that "9-1-1" is a show about love and inclusion, showcasing queer relationships from its inception, including a "beautiful Black lesbian marriage."

He expressed his disappointment in those who objected to Buck's bisexuality, stating, "If one other character finding a new facet to his sexuality and [realizing] his bisexuality is your deal breaker - I fear you've missed the entire point of the show."

Despite the negative reactions, Stark has also received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback, which he described as "humbling."
