Freshly cast in Batwoman, Ruby Rose, is quitting Twitter amidst increasing fan backlash

Mere days after her casting as CW’s Kate Kane, Ruby Rose has announced (in a post that is no longer available) that she is quitting Twitter, due to increased backlash from fans. The 32-year old, Orange is the New Black star was ecstatic at being accepted into the television DCU (Dc universe). Congratulatory Tweets from Stephen Amell, Laverne Cox, Janelle Monae, and Mariah Carey came rushing in as quickly as the tweets of distain.

Sadly, fans griped of the CW not casting “an openly gay actress.” Others shared their displeasure with the lack of Jewish representation, or that the part was not being given to an unknown. All the tweets were hashtagged under the banner of #recastbatwoman. 

Rose, who is currently promoting her new movie The Meg, has adjusted her Instagram settings to discourage additional backlash, with regards to Batwoman.

Batwoman, a stand-alone show, is slated to launch after a December Arrowverse crossover event. 

Fans are eager for another CW crossover event, which usually include the following shows: SupergirlFlash, and  Arrow. The last crossover, Crisis on Earth-X, let Nazis into Barry Allen’s wedding. 

Rose is still set to portray Batwoman on the CW. Written by Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries) and produced by Greg Berlanti.
