There are a number of The Flash fans now taking to social media to suggest that Danielle Panabaker should be fired for some racist comments she’s made in the past.
When I first heard that this was happening online, I was pretty shocked.
I’ve never heard any reports that Danielle Panabaker had made supposedly racist comments in the past.
This was all started when Hartley Sawyer was fired from the show for some very racist and misogynistic tweets he made between 2012 and 2014
It was claimed that these tweets were ‘jokes’, but if they were, they weren’t funny ones.
Well, fans of The Flash have now taken to social media and claimed that Panabaker’s comments should also be looked into.
You can have a look at the Twitter thread below for supposed evidence of these racist remarks
Should The Flash’s Danielle Panabaker be fired from the show?
A lot of this thread has to do with Danielle constantly promoting the shipping of her character, Caitlin Snow, and Barry Allen.
This shipping has been referred to as ‘Snowbarry’, and it does seem to be a case of her trying to undermine her co-star, Candice Patton.
Patton plays Iris West on the show, and she is married to Barry.
Further down the thread, it starts to discuss Danielle’s relationship with James Woods, who’s shown his true colours of late.
Then there’s her reaction – or lack thereof – to the murder of George Floyd.
I’m going to be honest here, all this does not look good for Danielle.
Yet, there’s nothing really as concrete as there was with Sawyer.
I don’t think a lot of this is grounds for firing. However, she will have to clean up her act moving forward.
