Rachel Zegler Posts New YouTube Video, Shares Message About Kindness Amid Twitter Break

Rachel Zegler, the star of the upcoming movie musical West Side Story, has shared a new cover song on her YouTube and she added a message to fans amid her break from Twitter.

The 19-year-old actress is taking time off from the social media app after she was attacked by Ansel Elgort fans who called her a “homewrecker” for saying that she loved her co-star.

Rachel did a cover of Lana Del Rey‘s song “hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have – but i have it” and wrote the following message.

“just… be kind. there’s not much more i can say but just be nice to each other. be there for your friends. be a friend. be family. be kind. spread love. don’t assume, always approach the world with an open heart and open mind. my love for you all is undying. love each other. love you. xo,” Rachel said.

Rachel Zegler Takes Twitter Break After Ansel Elgort Fans Call Her a 'Homewrecker'

Rachel Zegler, the young actress who is playing Maria in the West Side Story movie, announced she’s taking a break from Twitter after she was treated poorly by trolls on the social media app.

The 18-year-old actress previously tweeted about “falling in love” with Ansel on-screen on the day the film wrapped last week.

“There really aren’t enough words to describe the pride I have in Ansel‘s growth and beauty and literal magic he possesses on screen and off. Falling in love with him was easy. Happy wrap mi amor; catch ya on a fire escape sometime soon,” Rachel tweeted on September 27. The tweet has since been deleted.

Since that tweet, Ansel publicly commented on how he wants to find love with people other than his girlfriend, though he’s not looking for anything sexual with anyone else. Fans have been calling Rachel a “homewrecker” and sending her inappropriate DMs, which caused her to speak out.

“the fact that i have to say something is absolutely absurd. but the DMs and the name-calling and throwing around the word homewrecker over me expressing genuine love i have for my coworker is heartbreaking and i don’t want any part of it. so peace for now, i guess. be nice,” Rachel tweeted on Thursday night (October 3). The message was deleted soon after.

One message of Rachel‘s that is still up reads, “the internet has made me upset so goodbye for a bit be nice to each other.”

Bullying of any form is unacceptable and we want to remind our readers that celebrities are people too. Be kind to everyone!
