‘P-Valley’s J. Alphonse & John Clarence Stewart  Clapback at Homophobic Feedback Following Lil Murda & Big Teak’s Gay Sex Scene

Posted June 29, 2022

‘P-Valley’ viewers were left gagging after the latest episode which aired this past Sunday, following a surprise steamy sex scene between two male characters.

Fans of the show know that Actor J.Alphonse‘s character, Lil Murda has been coming to terms with his sexuality since season 1 of the hit series. While he’s had previous sex scenes on the show, it was Sunday’s episode that took things to a whole new level.

The episode saw Lil Murda and his longtime friend, Big Teak (John Clarence Stewart) have a steamy sexual encounter that left viewers on the edge of their seats. Big Teak is a new character this season but has already stirred things up.

Fans of the show took to social media in the hours and days following the episode to express their thoughts on the sex scene. While many viewers loved it, as expected there was a lot of displeasure from some with the scene. Viewers expressed their disdain for the gay sex scene with some even claiming they would no longer watch the show while spewing anti-DL and homophobic rhetoric.

J. Alphonse has now taken to social media to clap back.

The love is real the hate is real. As an actor the ultimate goal is to be as believable as possible. Relax, precise, fierce. Although@PValleySTARZ is a fictional story I’m grateful for the real conversations that are being had. Job well done.

His co-star John Clarence Stewart who he shared the scene with also took to his respective social media to respond to the ongoing conversation around the scene.

I’m grateful to be a part of this @pvalleystarz framily. Such a gifted group of collaborators and storytellers.

That quotation up there: that’s what they were doing at the #pynk season 1, and that’s what I’ve been fortunate to take part in this season 2.

Episode 4 is live now, for those who don’t know. And the way the episode has resonated is humbling, for real.

This lets me know that we’ve been ‘reflecting the times’. When we do so, people see themselves. There is freedom in that, there is healing in that, there is dissonance in that, there is friction, there is joy and pain and an array of the emotions that makes us all human.

For every message sent saying you’ve felt seen, know this. This story is crafted with you in mind and heart and soul.

Much love to the Framily, to those who are new and those who’ve been riding for a long time.

Much love. 🙏🏾

Kudos to both actors for taking a stance! We look forward to seeing how their love story plays out for the rest of the season.
