The culture of cancellation continues to affect many prominent figures in the entertainment industry and the most recent target of some Twitter users was actress Elizabeth Olsen, accused of racism, for a speech in an interview. .
According to netizens, the protagonist of “WandaVision” went so far as to describe her MCU character, Wanda Maximoff, as being a “gypsy”, a term considered offensive by the nomadic peoples of Roma, Caió and Sinti.
Additionally, the actress has come under heavy criticism for not posting a tribute to Chadwick Boseman on the actor’s death.
As a result, the actress decided to quit social media in February of the same year.
Now, the actress has revealed to EpicStream that she has no plans to reopen her profiles after the incident.
“It all made me uncomfortable and it’s not even like I was paying attention to comments or anything, I just felt weird how it organized my brain, like something was going on in the world, I would say, ‘Oh, I have to post about this? “. I think it’s very dangerous to think, ‘Oh, something has happened in the world. I’m an empowered person whose voice needs to be heard on this issue, ”and I just think it’s a narcissistic point of view that we’re all a part of, like, he’s made us live in this weird narcissistic cycle. During the pandemic, I thought, “Oh, well. you know what, it’s not for me ”, and i just got rid of it and i won’t go back. I will never go back to social media. “
She had previously used the term in a 2015 interview with talk show host Graham Norton, who at the time had advised her on the offensive nature of the word. But apparently the actress made another mistake, with Twitter users quickly attacking her, as you can see in the reactions below.
“Insults. In 2015 Elizabeth Olsen used slurs to talk about Wanda. So why did she use slurs recently during an interview with WandaVision? Because she’s a disgusting racist.”

“Elizabeth Olsen recently used ‘gypsy’ to describe Wanda’s hair set. She realized the meaning of the word as an insult to Roma in 2014 and I thought she had been educated since then. Although I think she had no malicious intent, it was wrong and I really hope she apologizes ”.
Elizabeth Olsen recently used G * ps * to describe Wanda’s helmet. She was informed of the meaning of the word in 2014 as an insult to Roma and I thought she had educated herself since. Although I think she had no malicious intent, it was wrong and I really hope she apologizes.

“Okay, then she doesn’t care about the Roma anymore. “Did you fight for this?” What the hell? She has said it several times and I firmly believe that it was brought to her or that someone tried to correct her on it. It’s already horrible that Wanda has been whitened, but it’s disgusting ”.
