The culture of cancellation continues to affect many personalities in the entertainment industry and the latest target for some Twitter users was actress Elizabeth Olsen, accused of racism, for a speech in an interview.
According to netizens, the protagonist of “WandaVision” even described her MCU character, Wanda Maximoff, as a “gypsy”, a term considered offensive by the nomadic peoples of Roma, Caió and Sinti.
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 was she using slurs recently during an interview with WandaVision? Because she’s a disgusting racist.”

“So where are the Elizabeth Olsen fans who say ‘she’s not racist, she didn’t know the gypsy was an insult’ after Graham Norton told her she was and now she uses to the word again. How are you going to defend it now? I’m curious. “

“Elizabeth Olsen recently used ‘gypsy’ to describe Wanda’s hair set. She realized the meaning of the word as an insult to the Roma population in 2014 and I thought she had been educated since. 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, at this point she doesn’t care about the Roma anymore. “Did you fight for this?” What is going on? She has said it on several occasions and I firmly believe that it was brought to her or that someone tried to correct her. It’s already horrible that Wanda has been whitened, but it’s disgusting ”.
