Twitter users and fans everywhere are wondering if Naya Rivera is coming out as bisexual after a comment she made on the “The View” Wednesday. The “Glee” actress is a guest host on the ABC morning talk show this week, and right after igniting a Twitter firestorm Tuesday with a statement about “white people” showering more, she got the Twitterverse abuzz again.
Rosie O’Donnell read a study conducted by the Stonewall U.K. Women’s Health Survey, according to After Ellen. Their research apparently found bisexual women suffer from higher rates of depression, self-harm, depression and eating disorders than lesbians.
“New research found that women who are bisexual are more likely to suffer from mental health problems than lesbians,” stated O’Donnell, a lesbian. “Rosie, no wonder I’m crazy,” Rivera said. “This just solves it all.”
Either Rivera attempted a lame joke or she just revealed that she’s bisexual. Twitter users flocked to the social media site and wanted to know if the news was true. Some asked for her to send a rainbow, others said they would be supportive of her sexuality.

Rivera didn’t respond on Twitter as of Wednesday evening. Instead, she shared pictures of her “glam” from the episode and said it was “SUCH a fun show today!!!”
She did, however, apologize for her comment about how much white people shower. "Yesterday we were talking about a study that says you're supposed to shower once or twice every three days," Rivera said on “The View” Wednesday, according to the New York Daily News. "I had an opinion on it that was supposed to be a joke. Apparently it didn't go over so well."
