Ruby Rose is set to join the “Arrowverse” in this year’s crossover and she’ll be playing Kate Kane/Batwoman.
The casting was recently announced, and Rose has made it clear that she’s thrilled to take on the role.
However, it seems that there are some people who aren’t so happy about the casting, and Ruby Rose has responded to the backlash.
Rose has quit Twitter, but prior to her exit she posted the following:
“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.
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.
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.”
One way or another fans will be able to see Ruby Rose in action during this year’s “Arrowverse” crossover, and it’s also possible that she’ll be getting her own show as the CW is developing a Batwoman standalone series.
