The Boys creator tells toxic fans to 'f*** off to the sun' after star called out behaviour

The Boys creator tells toxic fans to 'f*** off to the sun' after star called out behaviour

Eric Kripke has absolutely savaged toxic fans who have been abusing the show's stars

Eric Kripke, creator of hit Amazon show The Boys, has hit out at toxic fans who have been directing hate towards star Erin Moriarty.

The actor, who plays superhero Starlight on the popular show, recently called out misogynistic fans who had left her feeling 'silenced' and 'dehumanised' due to their abuse.

Posting on Instagram, she shared an article which slammed 'the betrayal of Erin Moriarty by The Boys "fans"' and thanked the author for writing it.

She also said the abuse from certain fans 'does break my heart', but insisted she would 'empathise and forgive' the toxic fans who were spewing misogynistic bile in her direction for the heinous crime of being an actor playing their role.

The article blasted abusive fans for seemingly completely missing one of the main messages of The Boys that toxic masculinity can be used to insidiously control women.

One of Starlight's main obstacles on The Boys is the men trying to control, coerce or abuse her as the character steadfastly remains one of the only genuinely heroic superheroes on the show.

The Boys star Erin Moriarty called out misogynistic fans for abusing her.

The Boys creator Eric Kripke has been a very vocal supporter of Moriarty since she revealed how the abuse had made her feel.

Not one to mince words, Kripke took to Twitter to support the actor and directly address the toxic trolls harassing her.

He wrote: "Hi trolls! One, this is literally the opposite of the show's f***ing message.

"Two, you're causing pain to real people with real feelings. Be Kind. If you can't be kind, then eat a bag of dicks, f**k off to the sun & don't watch The Boys, we don't want you."

Moriarty's fellow The Boys star Antony Starr, who plays psychotic superhero Homelander, agreed with his boss as he replied 'amen to that' to Kripke's tweet and pointed out being kind was 'easy'.

The Boys creator Eric Kripke hit out at toxic trolls targeting Erin Moriarty.

When the creator of the show is telling you to 'f**k off to the sun' and stop watching the show if you can't act like a good person it's pretty clear you're in the wrong, as if that wasn't already clear.

Moriarty has also received an outpouring of support from her fellow stars on The Boys, with wave after wave of her co-stars sending her their love and appreciation.

Sadly, stars of a show having to call out toxic fans is not new, as recently the stars of Obi-Wan Kenobi hit out at toxic fans for the racist bile they spewed in Moses Ingram's direction.
