The Blue Power Ranger Was Gay!

David Yost, who played the Blue Ranger from 1993-1996 on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers says that he left the show because he was harassed over his sexuality. Yost has revealed that he is gay, and says that when he worked on the show, "I was called 'f*ggot' one too many times [by the show's] creators, producers, writers, directors." Yost also claims the following, "I know that my co-stars were called in a couple of times to different producers' offices and questioned about my sexuality, which is kind of a humiliating experience to find that out."

Saban Entertainment who produced Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, have not commented on the claims.


  1. Wow. Can't believe Billy was gay. Hmm. That's BS tho seriously

  2. Producer Scott Page-Pagter explains, "[Yost] and two of the other actors were all getting a bonus on top of their salary. When the other two left the show, production wanted to stop giving him the bonus, and that’s ultimately what led to his departure from the show.”

    As for the allegations of homophobia, Page-Pagter told us, “I don’t know why he’s saying this, but he was the only one no one got along with ... he was a pain in the ass.”
