'Batwoman' faces major heat after Ruby Rose's exit, fans say she left because series was 'terrible'
Ruby Rose's exit from 'Batwoman' has furious fans asking for the show to be scrapped. The hit CW show faced some major heat from fans on Twitter soon after the news of Rose quitting the show broke. More than the actor, it was surprising, or rather not so surprising that it was the show that garnered flak.
"So Batwoman is leaving the Batwoman series? Make it make sense," a fan said. "S**t should be canceled anyway," another fan seconded. "I don’t blame her, the fans are unbearable," a fan opined. "Who will protect Gotham now?" a fan said in jest while uploading a GIF of Batman swooping in. "She realized that the show was bad and so she jumped ship before this show did any actual damage to her career," a fan theorized.
"With a 3.5/10 IMDb rating (and superhero fans tend to be generous), this *should* be the piece of news that just deep-sixes this series into outer space," a fan tweeted. There was one fan who was hopeful this would mark a new chance for the show. "So you’re saying that Batwoman has a chance of being good next season, I’m game!" she said. "There was a batwoman show?" a fan mocked. "It’s a shame the show was such a disaster," wrote one of the fans. "Good thing I didn’t invest my time in this show," another remarked. "Just cancel the show. It’s terrible anyway" and "that show is boring. I’m sorry, but it is," were some of the most common tweets. "How about just cancel the whole thing and give DC (and their characters) the respect it deserves? These CW shows are embarrassing in the first place. DC deserves way better," read one of the tweets.
In a joint statement, the network, Warner Bros TV and Berlanti Productions said, "Warner Bros Television, The CW and Berlanti Productions thank Ruby for her contributions to the success of our first season and wish her all the best. The studio and network are firmly committed to Batwoman’s second season and long-term future, and we — along with the show’s talented creative team — look forward to sharing its new direction, including the casting of a new lead actress and member of the LGBTQ community, in the coming months."
