A victim of harassment because of his role of Batwoman, a super-heroine openly lesbian, the actress In troubled waters leaving the social network.
A few days ago, the string CW announced its desire to diversify its catalogue of super-heroes. In particular, bringing to the screen the first super-heroine openly lesbian. Introduced through a crossover annual : The Flash, Supergirl and Arrow in December before you have its own television series. To embody, an actress had been chosen : Ruby Rose, appeared in, among others, John Wick 2, Orange is the New Black , or in the next In troubled waters.
An actress of choice all the more that she is a fervent activist for the LGBT cause and to fully assume his homosexuality.
Ruby Rose, who still wonder : why this hatred ?
The latter had responded a few days later on his account Instagram, thanking the production of the have chosen, saying it was both ” delighted and honored “ to embody the heroine :
“This is a child’s dream. I would have killed to see such a thing on tv when I was a young member of LGBT people who had never felt represented on the screen and felt alone and different. “
The Bat is out of the bag and I am beyond thrilled and honored. I’m also an emotional wreck.. because this is a childhood dream. This is something I would have died to have seen on TV when I was a young member of the LGBT community who never felt represented on tv and felt alone and different. Thank you everyone. Thank you god.
Except that for some users, it doesn’t fit, or not at all. A few people have started to express their non-approvals on the choice of the actress, and, as a tackle never comes alone, began to sting to the quick the actress. In addition to the comments were more moderate as : ” How Batwoman is a lesbian ? “ it is especially the fact that Ruby Rose is not ” quite gay enough “ to be able to represent the best Katy Kane, aka Batwoman, who has upset the “fans”. ” Ruby is not a lesbian, then she can’t be Batwoman ” could I read it on the networks.
In the Face of this rise of hatred, the actress has decided to close his Twitter account and disable comments on his page Instagram, having posted a final message to anyone who will listen :
“But where does this “Ruby Rose is not a lesbian so she can’t embody the Batwoman” – which is the thing both the funniest and the most ridiculous that I could hear. I made my coming out at the age of 12 years. And for the past 5 years, I have to deal with : “it’s too gay “, what is your problem ? I have not changed.
Ready to knock out the idiots that bored
When women and minorities join forces, we are invincible… When entredéchire, it is even more painful when it comes from any other group. But hey, I like the challenge and I wish that women and the LGBT community is more supportive and that we are kinder and more supportive to others.
I send you all my love and gratitude. […] I am now going to try to sleep more than four hours per night and leave Twitter in order to focus my energy on my next two projects. If you seek me, I will be reachable on my BatPhone. “
