    The guy who played the Blue Ranger on the "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" series has just revealed that he's gay -- and dropped a huge bombshell ... that he quit the show because he was harassed over his sexuality.



    Actor David Yost -- who played the B.R. from 1993 to 1996 -- just gave an interview to "No Pink Spandex" -- and explained, "I was called 'f*ggot' one too many times [by the show's] creators, producers, writers, directors."

    Yost added, "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."

    Yost claims it got so bad on the show that he became "worried that I might take my own life."

    Instead, Yost took a break from Hollywood ... and only recently decided to start acting again.

    Calls to Saban Entertainment -- which produced Power Rangers -- have not been returned.

    Kinda funny that the sparkles just enhance the hilarity of this...I'm surprised, but to be honest, i think he wants attention, gay or not.

    Heh, just watched Power Rangers the other day too. The Green Dragon miniseries.

    That's bullshit though. Where do people get the balls to talk to others that way, especially in a work environment where lawsuits can be filed? Unbelievable.

    I must now state the joke that just formed in my mind.

    Is that the reason he was cast as the ranger with the rhino zord?

    (Not meaning to be hateful, MMPR is fuckawesome and the best of the entire series IMO)

    No, he isn't. It's not in his credits, I've seen an interview where he denies it and says he filed a lawsuit against a website that made the claim in the first place, and I saw a link to a profile on Facebook of a guy who looks like him and is allegedly the guy who did the gay porn. I highly doubt it's anything more than a rumor.

    It's not true but there was a good rumour going around that he was.

    One of the original articles.

    He should sue them for something that occurred 15-20 years ago.

    I'll admit, even though I was 7 years old, I had some suspicions about the blue ranger...I mean, cmon, he never even tried to get grabby with the pink or yellow ranger....

    The black one was black, the yellow one was Asian, the red one was Native American and the pink one was a girl. They also stole all the fight scenes from the Japanese version where iirc the blue one was a girl.

    You do realize it has been almost 20 years since Power Rangers right? He was already in his mid 20s when he did Power Rangers.

    Actually the difference was that the yellow ranger was a guy.

    That's why the yellow ranger in our version has no "skirt" like the pink ranger.

    Also, this reminds me a lot of the blue power ranger William from Parody Rangers.
