Arrow’s Stephen Amell Branded A Racist By Fans And Comic Book Writer Tee Franklin

Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen in Arrow

Arrow star Stephen Amell is being branded as a racist by many fans of the show and also comic book writer Tee Franklin after recent comments he made.

It really seems as though Hartley Sawyer’s recent firing from The CW show The Flash has opened up the floodgates.

People are now putting the actors of these CW shows under the microscope and the results haven’t been too good for them.

For instance, a fan took to Twitter recently and write a thread about The Flash star Danielle Panabaker’s actions and it really does not look too good for her.

It seems as though people have now turned their attention to Arrow star, Stephen Amell.

Amell’s now being branded a racist after some comments he made on a recent episode of his podcast.

He’s now been outed by many fans of the TV show and comic book writer Tee Franklin.

She took to Twitter recently to call out the actor.

You can have a look at what she had to say about Amell in her tweet below.

There have been a whole bunch of tweets from fans of the show following Tee’s tweet agreeing with her.

Interestingly enough, Amell responded to Tee’s tweet and he seems to want to open up a discussion with her on the matter.

Here’s what Amell had to say:

You totally nailed me. Hope that makes you feel better. I just followed you… so if you need something or you want to help me better understand, hit me up and we can chat!

Tee then replied to Amell, saying:

I’m not the only Black woman that’s called you out, so I know you’ve had these conversations. Silence is complicity, while playing ignorant is ludicrous. You’re a father & someone in their 30’s you’re not new to racism & if you believe Toronto isn’t racist that’s your privilege.
