Following how Erin Moriarty complained about being treated poorly by the “misogynistic trolling” fans, The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke responds.
Kripke took to Twitter to tell them to f’k off.
“Hi trolls! One, this is literally the opposite of the show’s fucking message. Two, you’re causing pain to real people with real feelings. Be kind. If you can’t be kind, then eat a bag of d-cks, f-ck off to the sun & don’t watch #TheBoys, we don’t want you,” tweeted Kripke.
Anthony Starr who plays Homelander also chimed in.
“Amen to that, sir. Be kind people. It’s easy ;),” he responded.
Erin Moriarty feels “dehumanized” and “paralyzed, by the fans of The Boys
Regarding the trolls, earlier saw Erin Moriarty respond to a fan-penned article about how the fans treat her which compared them to the idealization of internet persona Andrew Tate.
“I do feel silenced. I do feel dehumanized. I do feel paralyzed. I’ve put blood, sweat, and tears into this role (over & over & over again), I’ve grown UP in this character’s shoes (*emphasis on grown up – we change & evolve mentally AND physically),” she wrote on Tuesday.
Moriarty continued and thanked the Instagram account for the article.
“So with that I say: a) thank you to @butcherscanary b) this does break my heart – I’ve opened up a vein for this role and this kind of trolling is exactly what this role (Annie) would speak out against and c) everyone’s going through their own battle(s); let’s not add to that. I will never intentionally (and ESPECIALLY) publicly add to yours,” Moriarty said.
She continued, “This has only strengthened my empathy muscle and to anyone who comes at me: I see you, I don’t hate you, I only empathize and forgive.”
Erin Moriarty’s latest Instagram post features herself with Jack Quaid who plays Hughie flipping the bird.
“Back to my regularly scheduled programming of work bliss with my favorite hooooman(s). (If there were no [bird]’s involved, would it be @theboystv?),” she said.
