The Last of Us Supporters Drown Out Homophobes, Says Bella Ramsey

The Last of Us gay romance has attracted negativity from a small proportion of viewers, but Ellie actress Bella Ramsey isn’t worried about the hate. Speaking to ComicBook, she echoed Riley actress Storm Reid’s comments, and stressed that the number of supporters far outweigh haters.

The Last of Us gay romance resulted in review bombing

As we previously reported, The Last of Us episodes that feature gay romance were disproportionately rated lower than others by users on IMDB. Many viewers critical of the content don’t appear to have played the video games altogether.

“I had an oath with [producer] Craig Mazin that I wasn’t going to look at comments, and I feel like I’ve slightly dramatically blown open that oath the last couple of weeks,” Ramsey told ComicBook. “I’m very aware that there’s a gay army who are on Twitter who are just supporting me and Ellie, and it’s like they’re so much louder than any people who still hate it, or hate the show, the homophobic trolls, whatever.”

Ramsey says that she feels validated seeing fans of the video games enjoy the show. She particularly enjoys their reaction because it means the show lived up to their expectations.

HBO’s The Last of Us season 1 will conclude next week.
