Another Twitter user would also describe That Star Wars Girl, Wanderlust Luca, and That Star Wars Girl’s followers as racists.
I know the racism is frying what little brains you had but Kory doesn’t wear her suit 24/7 and dctv Kory hasn’t even got her suit. Titans has many faults but its suits aren’t one of them so I doubt they put her in a cheap suit got from Amazon

Wanderlust Luca also detailed stated that she was accused of racism for liking a tweet from a person that preferred her Starfire cosplay to the designs seen in DC Universe’s Titans show.
Yeah they came for me too cause someone said they preferred me over the Netflix starfire. I liked that comment cause I took it as a compliment and now I’m a racist for it eventho the comment didn’t even mention race 🤦🏻♀️
