Stephen Amell has responded after he was called a racist by author Tee Franklin.
The 39-year-old Arrow actor was supposed to have The Flash‘s Grant Gustin on his podcast on Monday (June 1), but Grant decided to cancel out of respect for the Black Lives Matter movement.
Someone tweeted a clip from the podcast and wrote, “Not Grant Gustin telling Stephen Amell I’m not going to be a part of your podcast while you gain ad revenue during the #BlackLivesMatter movement…”
Tee responded to the tweet and said, “F–k @StephenAmell he’s been showing us his racist ass ways for quite awhile now. AND his wife. Also Grant Gustin ain’t absolved, cuz he DEFINITELY didn’t support & speak out for Candace [Patton]. 🤷🏾♀️.”
For those who aren’t familiar with Tee, she is a comic book writer for Image Comics and she was the first Black woman to be hired by the company. She also created the hashtag #BlackComicsMonth.
Stephen replied to Tee and said, “You totally nailed me. Hope that makes you feel better. I just followed you… so if you need something or you want to help me better understand, hit me up and we can chat!”
