Nickelodeon tweeted about Spongebob’s sexuality on Saturday to celebrate Pride Month 2020.
This tweet is what all Spongebob’s lovers were waiting for (or maybe not?), but one this is for sure: our beloved sea-sponge is finally “ready” to be who he really is.

This tweet shows pictures of Spongebob, alongside canonically queer characters Schwoz Schwartz from Henry Danger and Korra from Avatar: The Last Airbender spin-off Legends of Korra.
The tv broadcasters wrote: “Celebrating Pride with the LGBTQ+ community and their allies this month and every month.”
Do you remember when the show creator – Stephen Hillenburg – said that Spongebob was asexual?
