Rowan Blanchard is, once again, under fire for their allegedly “biphobic tweets,” thanks to Auli’i Cravalho, the 20-year-old actor who received a major backlash when their co-star seemingly made a joke about Rowan.
Rowan Blanchard and Auli’i Cravalho appear in an upcoming rom-com movie, “Love in Color.” The film tells the story of an aspiring young artist who joins the high school track team and later discovers what real love feels like when she finds herself falling for an unexpected teammate.
The cast of “Love in Color,” Auli’i Cravalho and Rowan Blanchard play the character of “AJ” and “Paige,” respectively. Both are the top cast of the movie; Auli’i Cravalho’s joke about her co-star backfired.
Fans were left perplexed when they saw Cravalho’s TikTok stitch video where she duets with a fan who seemed excited about the upcoming movie. Auli’i, while making the TikTok video, wrote, “she’s still biophobic but this movie is going to be so cute and queer.”
Rowan Blanchard previously apologized for liking allegedly biphobic tweets; In 2019, some Twitter users caught the 20-year-old actor liking biphobic tweets, one user wrote, “for the people who don’t know, these are the biphobic tweets Rowan Blanchard liked, followed by her condescending apology where she blame being called out for liking them on cancel culture and says that’s why she gave on activism.”
In her apology, Blanchard had written, “Hey! I am queer as f*ck! My boyfriend is a trans man and honestly none of you guys know sh*t about my private life.” She added, “Cancel culture is much more toxic than most of you think it is, and frankly, it has driven me far away from activism.”
Blanchard also added, “I love you all! I am just trying to let all of us be queer in peace. Sorry, you felt I was invalidating your sexuality; I promise you, I am not.”
Well, that was the apology from Rowan, and fans were still fumed about her action; even her trans boyfriend, Frank Ayzenberg, was called out for similar action on his social media. The 21-year-old trans model took to his Instagram account to upload a story where he made a controversial statement about bisexuality.
Frank said, “bisexuality infers gender binary that doesn’t exist!” and claimed the term is “outdated.” Following the statement, fans were fumed; However, things were settled after the apology, but Cravalho’s recent video sparked the backlash again, for both Blanchard and her boyfriend, and Auri’i Cravalho too.
Following the backlash, Auri’i deleted the video from her TikTok account; however, some fans on Twitter were able to download it. The video can be seen here. But the question is, why did Auri’i Cravalho do such a thing? Does she hate her co-star?
When fans asked her, she seemed rather indifferent, and since the actress revealed they had already completed the filming of “Love in Color,” Cravalho seemed relieved that she wouldn’t have to face any awkward situation with Blanchard.
