Erin Moriartystarlight in the acclaimed series The boys took a stand against the show’s toxic fandom and fierce criticism from its members.

The actress lately has been the target of an avalanche of comments and misogynistic slurs and the sexists who followed back criticism of her character in the show’s final season. Now Moriarty has hit out at his so-called “fans” by sharing a heartfelt post on his Instagram profile titled “#IStandWithStarlight?: Erin Moriarty’s betrayal by Boys ‘fans’‘.

The article, produced by the page dedicated to the series @butcherscanary, underlines in particular how much the hatred of which the character has become the object on social networks flows without brake in the most disparate personal offenses towards him who lends his features. All the elements that the actress had to undergo on her skin and that led her to position which you can read below:

I feel silenced. I feel dehumanized. I feel paralyzed. I shed blood, sweat and tears in this role (again and again and again), I grew as a character (I emphasize growth – we change and evolve mentally and physically) . So with that I say: A) thank you to @butcherscanary B) it broke my heart – I really put in a lot of effort for this role and this kind of trolling is exactly what my character is about would take and C) everyone is fighting their own battles; let’s not add that too. I will never intentionally (and ESPECIALLY) publicly add to yours. It only strengthened my empathy for anyone who comes to me: I see you, I don’t hate you, I just sympathize and forgive you.“.
