As if the fan backlash to his comments weren’t bad enough, Stephen Amell is also facing some heavy criticism from several of his “Arrowverse” co-stars. Reverse-Flash actor Matt Letscher was particularly critical, saying, “Still waiting on that comprehensive list of totally non-reductive negotiating tactics … Thank god for superheroes!”
“Arrow” star Kirk Acevedo (who played Ricardo Diaz/The Dragon) was much more straightforward, simply tweeting, “This f***ing guy.”
To top it all off, X users like @dweebleton have also accused Amell of scabbing by promoting his show “Heels” across social media. According to the official strike guidelines from SAG-AFTRA, union members are prohibited from “promotion of/publicity services for work under the TV/Theatrical Contracts,” which includes social media. Amell has since deleted his social media posts promoting “Heels,” though most of them have been reuploaded online via users like @kfortrends on X — with many citing them as proof that Amell has engaged in scabbing against his own union.
Although Stephen Amell has yet to face any consequences from SAG-AFTRA for his social media posts, Amell’s comments have certainly caused plenty of outrage and criticism across social media.
