YouTube sensation Bretman Rock has just made HISTORY.
Bretman is one of the most popular YouTube stars, yet lives a relatively low key life in Hawaii; however, that doesn’t stop him from making big money moves.
The highly popular social media star is the digital cover star of October’s Playboy Magazine.
He is the first gay male to cover the iconic magazine.
In true Playboy fashion, Bretman sported the legendary silk corset, bunny ears and tail, white cuff links, complete with black see-through tights and heels.
“For Playboy to have a male on the cover is a huge deal for the LGBT community, for my brown people community and it’s all so surreal. A total ‘is this even f—-g happening right now?’ type of vibe. And I’m so pretty.”@bretmanrock for Playboy: https://t.co/6iN9yRUF57 pic.twitter.com/3NJGp4J9wU

Bretman also took this monumental moment to tweeted, “I’m a Playboy bunny DUHHH,” a play on the legendary “Mean Girls” scene where Karen points to her ears and tells Gretchen, “I’m a mouse, Duhh.”

According to NBC News, the social media influencer is the third man to appear solo on the cover of the cult-fave publication following the magazine’s founder, Hugh Hefner, and the musician Bad Bunny, who appeared on Playboy’s digital cover in 2020.
Bretman gracing the cover marks the latest instance of the magazine breaking barriers for the LGBTQ community.
He also acknowledged the fact that many straight men were upset by his beautiful face being on the digital cover.
On Instagram he wrote, “Da Baddest Bunny 🐰 posting to piss off more straight men, if you’re pissed Bc I turn you on then- say that geez.”
The 23-year-old rose to fame in 2015 when he began posting makeup tutorials on YouTube. He was one of a few male beauty gurus at the time to break ground in that arena.

In an interview with NBC in February, Bretman told the publication, “I didn’t really see anyone like me on TV. I literally don’t even remember seeing any, like, gay Filipinos on TV until I started watching ‘Drag Race’ and saw Manila, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God! You look like me.’”
In June, Playboy and Bretman partnered together to sell limited-edition T-shirts for Pride month.
More from Bretman’s cover shoot and Playboy interview will be released later this month.
