The Boys star Erin Moriarty feels dehumanized by hate comments

On Instagram, the Starlight actress shared excerpts of the article #IStandWithStarlight? according to Variety: The betrayal of Erin Moriarty by The Boys ‘fans’. This is about how Erin Moriarty experiences exactly the kind of contempt, hatred and toxic masculinity as her character in the Amazon series.

The actress agrees with the article, writing, among other things:

I feel silenced. I feel dehumanized. I feel paralyzed. I have put blood, sweat and tears into this role (over and over and over again), I have grown up in this character’s shoes (* emphasis on grown up – we change and evolve mentally AND physically).

Her The Boys co-star Antony Starr also picked up on the article, voicing his support for Moriarty on Instagram:

The treatment of Erin Moriarty has really upset me. It’s a reflection of how misogyny is normalized in “fandom culture,” which will only get worse if we neglect it, if we don’t protect her and each other.
