The Australian actress, who stars in this weekend’s new film release The Meg, deactivated her account and pulled off public comments from her Instagram account on Saturday, following a strong social media backlash against her being cast as Batwoman in The CW‘s Arrowverse.
Trolls commented quite a bit about her not being the right fit for Batwoman, with many focusing on the fact that she wasn’t “gay enough” to play the part — and it appears that is what sent Rose out over the edge and off of Twitter.
Before deleting her account, Ruby said this to the trolls in a series of tweets (below):
“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 then signed off by saying (below):
“[Taking a] break from Twitter to focus all my energy on my next 2 projects. If you need me, I’ll be on my Bat Phone.”
And just like that, her account disappeared, as well as the ability to comment on her IG page.
What do U think, Perezcious readers?! Did she make a good decision??
Social media can be a brutal place for celebrities…
