“The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Maya Avant is a man, baby — and the revelation has thrown social media into quite the tizzy.
Wednesday’s cliffhanger episode on the CBS soap sent jaws dropping across the Twitterverse, after it was revealed that Maya (played by Karla Mosley) is actually named Myron.
As reported by We Love Soaps, the big reveal came when Maya had a faceoff with her sister Nicole (portrayed by Reign Edwards).
“You’re not my sister, Maya. You’re not Maya at all,” Nicole informed her sibling. “You’re Myron, my brother.”
The gender switcheroo sent fans rushing to their Twitter accounts with swift and strong reactions, pushing “Maya” onto the list of U.S. Twitter trends.
“…Myra was Myron? Really? Really really? Wow. What? Wow. #BoldandBeautiful,” wrote one fan.
“Holy F! Today’s #BoldandBeautiful I’ve never been so shocked,” another marveled.
A third “B&B” devotee wrote, “Am I reading this right? Maya was born with an……extra part?”
Mosley herself acknowledged the outpouring on her Twitter account, promising, “more to come.”
Totally not supposed to be tweeting, but thanks for all the LOVE. So much more to come. #BoldandBeautiful

Seriously it takes guts for a major Soap Opera and a MAJOR Network (CBS) to go forth with this #BoldandBeautiful has no fear apparently.
