A few days ago, DC Comics fans were surprised with the first image of Shazam! Fury of the Gods showing the Marvel Family again, but the biggest surprise was that the actress Grace fulton now he plays his superhero version. As many will remember, in Shazam! – 88% of Billy Batson’s adoptive siblings, who are children and teenagers, become superheroes in the same way that Billy does when he says Shazam!

In the first installment, Fulton’s character, Mary Bromfield, was played by Michelle Borth by taking her superhero form. Staying in the sequel with the same actress for both roles seemed reasonable, since Grace is an adult and fans had good reactions to seeing her in the first picture, however, others lamented the absence of Borth.
Now some have discovered the possible reason that Michelle was fired from Shazam! Fury of the Gods. Through Twitter, several users who explored the actress’s social networks revealed that she made a controversial publication a few months ago, when a woman who was in the Capitol riots was killed by a gunshot.
In her post we can read that she did not support the woman for sharing her point of view, as she says “despite our surprising difference of opinions”, but then added “My prayers and thoughts are with all your loved ones. You lost your life fighting for something you believed in. ” Maybe Warner Bros. wanted to avoid another scandal like the one Disney had with Gina Carano, an actress who was fired from The Mandalorian – 91% for supporting Donald Trump and having quite controversial and questionable opinions, although in this case it would be unfair, as you will see later.

Nice to meet you, Michelle Borth. I enjoyed you in H50 and other things, but when you gave yourself up as an insurgent, it was over.

It doesn’t surprise me at all that the #MichelleBorth fangirls are so quick to celebrate their disaster, even when she’s emphatically wrong. ‘Taken out of context’ my ass. He publicly supported a domestic terrorist. Cancel it.

Empathy for a terrorist. It makes a lot of sense. Hey, if someone doesn’t like your posts on social media, they have the right not to want to work with you. Maybe that’s what happened to her.

But some defended her, as the rest of her posts were in support of Black Lives Matter and the LGBTQ movement.
Haven’t they even looked at the rest of Michelle Borth’s Instagram? Are we really going to judge by an image? I don’t know if he deserves so much hate.

It went from ‘Michelle borth had a silly opinion on a social issue’ to ‘Michelle Borth was at the Capitol riots’ very quickly, as if this wasn’t her instagram too, in my opinion.
