After his recent Instagram post struck controversy over coming out as a gay, James Faulkner has denied this widespread misinterpretation. The Australian Cricketer appeared publicly for the first time with a picture of himself with his Boyfriend and Mother. Later he edited it to Best Friend. Cricket Australia has come up and apologized for the resulting “unintended offense”.

On his 29 birthday, his Instagram post saw him sitting next to his mother Roslyn Carol Faulkner and Rob Jubb. The Caption read on this post “Birthday dinner with the boyfriend @robjubbsta and my mother @roslyn_carol_faulkner #togetherfor5years.” He stated that he and Jubb have been in a relationship for five years.

This was a shout out to these two celebrating five years as housemates. There seems to be a misinterpretation about my post from last night, I am not gay, however, it has been wonderful to see the support from and for the LBGT community. Let’s never forget love is love, however, @robjubbsta is just a great friend. Last night marked five years of being housemates! Good on everyone for being so supportive.” he wrote later.

“Cricket Australia does not weigh the social commentary this morning from James Faulkner to be a joke, nor does James.” Soon after his statement Cricket Australia said. “James’s comment was made as a true reflection of his relationship with his business partner, best friend, and housemate of five years. He was not communicated for clarification before some outlets reported his Instagram post as an expression of a homosexual relationship."
