And, Malcolm has responded to some of the comments. Read on below for Malcolm’s reaction and more information about his relationship with Taranoza.


Timothy Malcolm Has Responded to Rumors About His Sexuality

On the show, Malcolm says he is not gay and that he is very much interested in girlfriend Taranoza. But, fans of the show on Reddit have been speculating that Malcolm either is a woman or is transgender. One user named NotAsBrightlyLit wrote, “EXACTLY what I was thinking… Timothy is trans. I don’t have a problem with that, but if he IS trans, I think it’s really shitty of him to develop a relationship without telling Jennifer first.”

On Malcolm’s Instagram account, many commenters have written rumors about Malcolm’s sexuality as well. A user named alishia76buhr commented, “I’ve thought since day 1 you were transgendered, or gay. I haven’t seen anything that states otherwise.”

In addition, according to Distractify, a Twitter user who goes by @eric98233 stated that they were “so glad that 90 Day Fiance cast their first FTM cast member.” According to Cyber Definitions, FTM means “female to male”.

But, Malcolm addressed the statement, tweeting, “What is FTM? Do I even want to know?” He also said during an Instagram Q&A session that he expected negative comments on social media, but didn’t expect all of the questions about his sexuality. According to The Inquistr, Malcolm said, “Yes, I knew I would have haters. The transgender comments were not expected.”
