Billy Eichner is back on the streets with an unexpected but welcome gay agenda.
Celebrating the 15th anniversary of Billy on the Street, which is now streaming on Netflix, Eichner returned this week with a new digital episode featuring special guest Chris Evans. “I still miraculously have a thriving career, even though your straight older brother Justin doesn’t get me,” Eichner says of the milestone.
One of Eichner’s first orders of business? Publicly dragging a disgraced gay actor.
“Sir, for a dollar, would you like to sign this petition to remove Kevin Spacey from homosexuality and add Chris Evans?” he asks one random man, who easily agrees. “We’re removing Kevin Spacey from homosexuality and adding Chris Evans.”
Wait – before the week is over – have you all signed my petition? pic.twitter.com/yjAn1IyZrS

Later, Eichner and the Knives Out star, who has a gay brother, are joined by “Chris’ worst nightmare: a bunch of lesbians that don’t care that he’s hot,” Eichner says. “Let’s go, lesbians! Let’s go!”
In 2017 Anthony Rapp was the first of numerous men to accuse Spacey of sexual misconduct. Spacey, who subsequently came out as gay, was fired from Netflix’s House of Cards. He was also digitally removed from the film All the Money in the World and replaced with Christopher Plummer. So how many signatures do we need to swap him with Captain America?
