Ruby Rose Deletes Her Twitter After Outrage Over Batwoman Casting

Ruby Rose was recently cast as Batwoman for The CW, becoming the first openly lesbian superhero character to lead a series. Most seemed pretty positive about the casting, but as is the usual case, Twitter found something to complain about. The hate over her casting came from from people saying that the actress “wasn’t gay enough” as well as a few other complaints – and it ultimately ended up with the actress deleting her account entirely.

She posted this message before leaving:

“Where on earth did ‘Ruby is not a lesbian therefore she can’t be Batwoman’ come from — has to be the funniest most ridiculous thing I’ve ever read. I came out at 12? And have for the past 5 years had to deal with ‘she’s too gay’ how do y’all flip it like that? I didn’t change. I wish we would all support each other and our journeys.”

She added:

“When women and when minorities join forces we are unstoppable… when we tear each other down it’s much more hurtful than from any group. But hey/ love a challenge I just wish women and the LGBT community supported each other more, My wish was we were all a little kinder and more supportive of each other…Sending everyone my love and gratitude, it’s been a rollercoaster of a year, this month especially.”

Before concluding:

“I am looking forward to getting more than 4 hours of sleep and to break from Twitter to focus all my energy on my next 2 projects. If you need me, I’ll be on my Bat Phone.”

Here are some of the tweets that caused her to leave:

Just last month, Millie Bobby Brown left Twitter over bullying like this, and it’s even led to some killing themselves.
