Arrow Star Stephen Amell Responds To Negative Comments After Attending Pride Parade


If you watch “Arrow” you are probably familiar with Stephen Amell, as he plays Oliver Queen on the series. If you like Stephen Amell on Facebook, then you’re probably well aware that he’s an active philanthropist and all around good dude.

Stephen accepts people of all backgrounds into the community he’s built, but some fans just couldn’t accept the fact that he attended a pride parade over the weekend in Vancouver. Amell posted a few photos from the event and received a lot of backlash from some negative people. He later took to Facebook to tell all the negative people to keep their hate off of his Facebook page and he posted the following:

“Facebook! What’s happening! So I’m scrolling through my page this morning and I was really taken aback by some of the back and forth commentary after I posted two photos from the Pride Parade / Festivities yesterday in Vancouver. The vast majority were positive, but a laughable amount were negative. I had a fantastic weekend in Vancouver with my wife and friends, met some terrific people and more than anything just tried to soak in all the positive energy from people living their best lives. If I’m in Vancouver next year I won’t just go back, I’ll walk in the parade. So for everyone in their negative pants: Go be on the wrong side of history on somebody else’s Facebook page. xo”

Amell is always trying to keep things positive, but it appears that some people have failed his Facebook page. Hopefully his positive message will continue to spread more positivity throughout the internet.

“Arrow” will return on Thursday, October 12.

After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice.

As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy).

Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his “family”.
