Hollywood actress Ali Larter is being crucified on the Internet after her ‘Heroes’ co-star Leonard Roberts called her out for being responsible for his exit from the show after the very first season. Roberts played DL Hawkins on the hit NBC drama.

In a detailed account given to the publication Variety, the 48-year-old actor spilled the beans on how Larter, creator and showrunner Tim Kring and other actors from the cast of ‘Heroes’ singled him out as a Black actor on different occasions. “The script suggested D.L. and [Larter’s character] Niki had a volatile relationship — and it wasn’t long before art was imitating life,” Roberts wrote hinting at what followed of his ordeal. 

Larter addressed the unflattering accusations from her 'Heroes'  co-star and told TVLine:  “I am deeply saddened to hear about Leonard Roberts’ experience on Heroes and I am heartbroken reading his perception of our relationship, which absolutely doesn’t match my memory nor experience on the show."

The 44-year-old actress made her film debut in ‘Varsity Blues’ in 1999 followed by horror films ‘House on Haunted Hill’, ‘Final Destination’ and ‘Final Destination 2’. The American actress is also known for her supporting roles in the comedy ‘Legally Blonde’ and the thriller ‘Obsessed’ which also starred pop legend Beyonce. Though she could not get into the A-list category in Hollywood, Larter still continues her work on both the silver and the small screen. If we talk about one of the recent projects, Larter starred in ‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’ in 2016 and prior to that she was also seen in 2015’s supernatural thriller ‘The Diabolical.’
