“Moana” Star Auli’i Cravalho Just Came Out as Bisexual

On TikTok, no less!

Auli’i Cravalho is bi in the house and in the house bi.

The Moana breakout star recently used TikTok to come out as bisexual. Lip-syncing to an Eminem song, the 19-year-old appeared to make a statement about her sexual orientation:

Seriously though, jokes aside
How you doin’? You straight? She said, “No, I’m bi.”
She said, “Are you drunk?” I said, “No, I’m high.”
“I’m checkin’ out the chick.” She said, “So am I.”

In a world where controversial prompts like “the #MugshotChallenge” are trending on TikTok, we give Cravalho props for a positive, innovative use of the platform. Welcome to the family, Auli’i!

The actress and singer is best known for voicing Moana in the 2016 Disney movie of the same name. She also graced television screens nationwide as the star of The Little Mermaid Live!, a live-action version of the classic Disney musical broadcast on ABC last year.

Cravalho isn’t the only young celebrity to come out in quarantine. In a recent guest appearance on the podcast Dating Straight, viral YouTube star Rebecca Black came out as queer, opening up for the first time about dating another woman.
