Matthew Davis Twitter
On 18th April, Matthew tweeted about boycotting China, and how they lied to us. Because of his tweet, he was declared racist and xenophobic. Fans started to attack him on twitter replies.
He’s such a racist piece of shit I can’t wait until the rest of the cast block him pic.twitter.com/hvwFzuDFJD— Monica paused breathing (@kayleebrqant) April 17, 2020
Matthew quickly deleted the tweet after being attacked by fans. However, fans claim that he was not exactly blaming the Chinese government but was showing hatred towards China. He also threatened a fan of the show on Twitter. Those tweets are now deleted but some Twitter pages managed to take screenshots.
Matt também já ameaçou PUBLICAMENTE um fã da série. “Se me ameaçar e vir à minha casa, vou lhe ensinar tudo sobre a segunda emenda. Vai ser uma lição rápida. Sei que você se sente super resistente atrás do teclado agora, mas não cometa esse erro.” pic.twitter.com/k05gJuXjYk— Legacies Brasil (@CWLegaciesBRA) April 18, 2020
On seeing this, other cast members of Legacies TV show such as Jenny Boyd(Lizzie), Kaylee Bryant(Josie), Lulu Antariksa (Penelope) unfollowed Matthew Davis on Twitter. There is also a video of Matthew during a comic-con being inappropriate towards Danielle.
Petition To Recast Alaric Saltzman with Jensen Ackles
Because of these tweets, fans started a petition on change.org to replace Matthew Davis as Alaric Saltzman and Cast Jensen Ackles, famous as dean in Supernatural TV Show.
However, we don’t think they are going to remove Matthew Davis because of this since he is one of the main actors in The Vampire Diaries universe.
