Stephen Amell Praises Grant Gustin's Response to 'Flash' Co-star's Offensive Tweets

Stephen Amell is speaking out with praise for The Flash star Grant Gustin after the actor spoke out against the offensive tweets of co-star Hartley Sawyer.

In case you missed the news, Hartley was fired from the hit CW series after several racist, sexist, and homophobic tweets of his resurfaced.

The show’s executive producer and showrunner Eric Wallace wrote a lengthy statement in which he said the tweets made him “mad as hell.” Grant reshared that statement on his Instagram account and added, “I don’t have much to add because Eric’s thoughts are stated so eloquently and powerfully. I will say I was shocked, saddened and angry when I saw the tweets. Words matter.”

Stephen tweeted out a screencap of the post and said, “Grant is one of the most thoughtful guys I know. He listens… and he wears his heart on his sleeve. Proud to have worked with him.” He later added, “Also… I’m aware that the showrunner wrote this. I’m supporting my friend. That’s it.”

Just last week, Stephen faced some accusations and he responded on Twitter.
