Moriarty has spoken about how the way of life "dehumanized" her after she committed so much to the character of Starlight.

"I do feel silenced. I do feel dehumanized. I do feel paralyzed. I've put sweat, blood as well as tears, into the character (I've grown up to be in the shoes of this character,"

Moriarty said in part. "This breaks my heart. I've opened the way for this role and this type of troll is exactly what this character (Annie)

would be speaking about everybody is experiencing the same battle(s) and we shouldn't just add more.

I'll never deliberately (and especially) publicly contribute to your story. This has just strengthened my empathy and also to anyone who looks at me:

"I am you, I don't have a hatred for you, but I do sympathize and accept forgiveness."

Kripke was not pleased after he received the message from Moriarty. After tweeting an article on the incident,

Kripke addressed the online Trolls directly and told them that they were treating talent in this manner, they are not doing anything.

"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 d*cks, f*** off to the sun & don't watch The Boys, we don't want you."

After venting her frustrations against Trolls, she cooled down by sharing some images on the sets of The Boys with her co-star,

Jack Quaid. Moriarty wrote that in her text, "Back to my regularly scheduled programming of work bliss with my favorite hooooman(s)."
