Ruby Rose Deletes Her Twitter Account After Trolls Absurdly Criticize Her 'Batwoman' Casting

Recently Ruby Rose was announced to play Batwoman in an Arrowverse crossover episode this December. A stand-alone series is also in talks.


But Rose found herself to be under intense scrutiny after the CW named her as their pick for the role.



The character Batwoman is written as a lesbian woman. Rose has identified as gender fluid and members of the LGBTQ community felt that there were better, lesbian specific actresses for the role.



Before deleting her account, Rose tweeted


"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."



She continued,


"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."



Fans can't believe that the criticism got so out of hand.

























We hope that people will learn where to draw the line and that Ruby Rose will grace us with her Tweets again soon.
