YA author Emily Duncan gets called out on her racism, antisemitism and bullying of other authors



Emily Duncan, author of another one of those mediocre ~slavic~ fantasy series (feat. Reylo), has been getting rightfully dragged on twitter bc of her antisemitc books and her behind the scenes bullying of poc authors. Author Hafsah Faizal has confirmed that she was the one Emily Duncan was talking trash about, as mentioned by fellow author Rin Chupeco.



Emily Duncan's "Something Dark and Holy" series also contains it's fair share of antisemitic tropes (read the full twitter thread for more details). She has posted a non-apology on her twitter basically admitting that she knew what she was doing with the antisemitic tropes and that she "tried to handle this in a sensitive way" but "fell short".


While Emily Duncan's trying to convince us that she's learned the error of her ways, right after the accusations against her came to light she was on her burner account tweeting stuff like this:


Meanwhile author friends of Duncan's are also posting their own empty apologies for being bystanders and trying to distance themselves from this mess.
