Candice Patton Shuts Down Arrow Fan for Racism and Fans Celebrate


– The Flash star Candice Patton has often been the target of harassment on Twitter, and today is no different. This time people were flooding her mentions with the 9999th debate over whether or not Iris West is a well developed lead or product of tokenism and virtue signalling (back in 2014 when the show started it was just called sjw pandering... we've come so far), but then things got even more personal.
– Fans of Westallen, Barry and Iris respectively, often fight back against these criticisms. In response to a critic saying "idiots* feel empowered" by Iris, one fan @misbehavinNJgirl posted a picture of her and her boyfriend captioned "Since black women with white men trigger you... hi 👋🏾".
– Another The Flash critic, infamous Olicity stan @OlicityStan, jumped in and tweeted in response to the picture, "I have nothing against white man having jungle fever. Most of them are loser that can't get with attractive white women." Said stan also used the word "savages" in another ugly tweet and bragged about getting Black Twitter "triggered AF!".
– Candice quote tweeted @OlicityStan and said "Since you continue with racist comments in my mentions... you must want attention. Here you go...😌"
– Another fan tweeted in response to Candice and both the "loser" comments, "So what does that make me as a white woman that fell in love with a black woman, a double loser? Since she was my best friend, soulmate, my heart, I'll gladly be a double loser".
– Candice quote tweeted her, "get in losers ! 🚗" and shared photos of other fans tweeting at her in interracial relationships and/or with interracial families. @OlicityStan has since been suspended for their comments. We poppin' bottles.



















ONTD, does anyone give you shit for your relationships and/or family?
