The Flash TV first aired on October 7, 2014, on CW, based on DC Comics. It is part of Arrowverse, and one of the longest DC shows that ran on TV. DC Shows like Arrow, DC Legends of Tomorrow, and The Flash have been a huge success. However, Arrow ended this year while Flash, Supergirl, DC Legends of Tomorrow are still airing. The Flash Season 6 ended with a cliffhanger, Iris is still stuck in the mirror dimension. Fans are really excited about Season 7 because we are finally going to see Godspeed in action. Due to pandemic, Flash Season 7 was delayed and now it’s going to release next year.
Murder of George Floyd led to a movement #BlackLivesMatter, which then turned into a protest and riot. Racism has taken lot of lives in many countries. Recently Flash star Hartley Sawyer was fired from Flash TV because of his past tweets. He played Ralph Dibney, aka Elongated Man in CW’s Flash. He won’t be returning for the seventh season of the show.
In regards to Mr. Sawyer’s posts on social media, we do not tolerate derogatory remarks that target any race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, or sexual orientation. Such remarks are antithetical to our values and policies, which strive and evolve to promote a safe, inclusive, and productive environment for our workforce.Eric Wallace
CW Stars following the Black Image trend on Instagram.
The Tweets were old but they were really offensive that led producers to make this decision. After hearing about this decision, Hartley posted this on his Instagram:
Regardless of the intention, my words matter and they carry profound consequences. And mine can and have caused pain and embarrassment, along with feelings I can only imagine, to supporters and fans, my castmates, the crew, my colleagues and friends. I owe them all an apology. And I owe each of you an apology. Thank you for holding me accountable.
Why Fans Want Danielle Panabaker To Be Fired From CW Flash?
After Hartley Sawyer, Fans are now tweeting, asking to fire Danielle Panabaker from Flash. According to fans, Danielle Panabaker is also a racist, and back in 2014, she has shown racism towards Candice. However, she just shipped Snowbarry back in 2014. A user on Twitter came up with old Tweets.
First, we’re going to start off with the way Danielle has tried to undermine Candice. This first example will be her baiting Snowbarry, a crackship made out of racial discrimination against Candice. Here is the proof. pic.twitter.com/o3WjM3sdgL— Jen 🍒 (@softxiris) June 3, 2020
Second instance. Not only did she bait the ship, she always romanticized sexual assault. Imagine how her fans that were sexual assault survivors must’ve felt. Her fans still use that scene in romantic edits. Candice was also sitting right there. pic.twitter.com/kBho6TiRoP— Jen 🍒 (@softxiris) June 3, 2020
For the next examples, we’re going to move onto her trying to ignore and erase Candice’s part in Shethority. First example, in which she gives full credit to Caity Lotz and Katie Cassidy for Shethority when in fact, Katie hadn’t joined till much later and it was Caity and Candice pic.twitter.com/ABDUZJY53P— Jen 🍒 (@softxiris) June 3, 2020
Now, Caity also proceeded to delete more comments regarding Danielle being racist towards Candice but she decided to leave these ones for everyone to see. I think it speaks for itself. pic.twitter.com/NrvJkbliX7— Jen 🍒 (@softxiris) June 3, 2020
You can open the tweets to know more about this. In my opinion, this doesn’t prove she is racist. While some are suggesting that she should be removed from Flash, some are still supporting her. She is an amazing actor and an amazing person. She does not deserve this much hate for shipping Barry and Catlin.
