The term "Cuomosexual" emerged in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, when many observers, including celebrities, praised New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's COVID-19 response. A year after, however, it turns out that this is another thing that did not age well.
As the news of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's resignation over the sexual harassment scandal remains a hot topic, many people online had some flashbacks about how Cuomo, who now faces intense backlash, was once an object of adoration and desire. 
The latter is no exaggeration, as back in 2020 when the coronavirus pandemic had only begun to ravage the world and the US in particular, some people literally branded themselves "Cuomosexuals" in a way to show their respect for the NY governor's handling of the pandemic in its early stages.
Now Cuomo, who is accused of sexually harassing his female employees, does not enjoy the same affection, and neither do those who formerly identified as "Cuomosexuals", among them celebrities like Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, Ellen DeGeneres and Randy Rainbow. The latter released a music video for the "Cuomosexual" song back at the time.
​Many netizens could not help but grin at how the entire "sex symbol" thing aged.
​Some people have jokingly came up with another "sexual orientation" for themselves.
​Among those who could call their "coming out" off is Trevor Noah, the host of "The Daily Show", who earlier joked about how he put "Cuomosexual" on his Tinder profile.
Reacting to the waves of critical comments online after the resurfacing of Noah's old statements about Cuomo, "The Daily Show" took to Twitter to take a look at some other archives as well, revealing how the comedian mocked himself for praising the NY governor after the sexual harassment allegations emerged.
​Cuomo announced that he will resign from his position within 14 days. The embattled politician, however, continues to reject claims that he sexually harassed multiple women, asserting that the accusations are "politically motivated".
