Well this is NOT going to be a rad reunion at all!
Even though we were SUPER excited for a go-go Power Rangers reunion, it seems that not only is Blue Ranger David Yost bowing out because of the way the show's execs allegedly treated him for being gay, Black Ranger Walter Jones will also be absent from the party…
In fact, Walter was also reportedly abused on set!
The former Ranger recently shared:
"I'm very sorry to disappoint the fans as I would have loved to be a part of it. David, who I still keep in touch with regularly, is a very great guy and it would have been fun to work together again on something we helped originate."
Awwww, Power Rangers standing in solidarity! We love it!
It's such a shame to learn that David and Walter were mistreated, and not by some evil fictional Lord Zedd, but by real life people.
BUT, on the positive side, it's amazing how quickly things shift — if Power Rangers had been created today, we bet even one of the characters would be gay!
