The CW Is Not Tolerating Racism
The CW has some of my favorite show, Black Lightning, The Flash, Star Girl, The 100 and so many good show. But they are also taking a stand against racism and discrimination.
Hartley Sawyer who plays Ralph Dibny also known as Elongated Man, will not making a season 7 return. He’s been fired for posting racist, homophobic and misogynistic tweets between 2012 and 2014.
Sawyer said he is incredibly sorry, ashamed, and disappointed in himself for his ignorance back then.” However, Sawyer said, friends and experiences had helped him to “open my eyes” in the years since
Producers of the show said, “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”
