The first episode Ralph joined that episode was dedicated on how people could change. And now they are firing him for something that he did 8 years ago. Unacceptable Cw

It’s okay guys I’m sure Barry will run back in time and delete those tweets.




But fr tho this is a stupid decision

Someone was really looking on his social media to find fault.

They getting everybody this month.

Ironic how in the show his backstory shows that people can change and the past doesn’t define who you are in the present.
Ark
Ark:
They’re old tweets. He has moved on and changed. Even CW said something like we should become someone better and to forget the past but yet they fired Sawyer over a tweet 8 years ago

Is nobody gonna talk about how that person was online stalking him?

I’ve seen people say George Floyd deserved to die and still keep their accounts. This guy makes dark humor jokes and they get rid of him? There is a problem here being offensive is not the same as being racist. This is the kind of thing Dave Chappell speaks out against. Is this what the future holds?? Thought policing?
Jay Fran
Jay Fran:
I hate this culture. When does it stop. Like there should be a line. All I see from stuff like this the belief that people can't change, when clearly they have and can. He shouldn't have been fired.

These were like 6-8 years ago why is it coming up now wtf
Captain Silver
Captain Silver:
Did they forget about James Gunn ??!?
He was literally hired by Warner bros after the tweets came out
That was a long time ago and I’m pretty sure Hartley isn’t that kind of man
I’m not gonna judge from TWEETS I judge him from who he is now
Harangue Meringue
Harangue Meringue:
The tweets were “exposed” at the end of March, yet it took the CW until now to take action? Riight... they just wanted to time things perfectly w/the BLM movement.

Do the research yourself: there’s a team of cyberbullies that harass CW show cast & crew. They pretend to be fans of or actually one of the black actors like Candice Patton & then try to start in-fighting & other drama.

Hartley was dumb to make those tweets, yes. But the CW’s cherry-picked standards are tiresome. Good thing there are far better shows out there to watch; the fanboys & girls who actually believe whatever the network says happened, lol, can have these shows.

Isn’t it weird how his character arch is about not being defined by your past but he gets fired because of tweets that are 6-8 years old

So sad. Except for Constantine, Harey's Elongated Man was the only other character who seemed like he walked right out of the comic book. He will be missed.

Every single one of us have something in our past we wouldn't want on the news now. Has he changed is the question. Cancel culture is a group that act like they're perfect and know nothing of mercy and forgiveness.

I am not going judge someone on their past. It’s all about the present. If he did this now that is a different story. I do t think they should’ve have fired him.

As much im disappointed in him i think they should give him a second chance because those tweets were from a while ago. Like look at some celebrities who are good people but did some questionable things like shane dawson who did a black face character but he apologized and he's a better person. We all said or maybe did some questionable thing's in the past but we need to forget them and try to be better so he needs to get another chance to redeem himself cause if we all were in his position we all will be canceled.
Scorpio Og
Scorpio Og:
This is so sad, this was 8 years ago ppl. That is waayyyy more than enough for someone to change. He is not what he was and he is a great person now. Now look at what ya done, he got fired and now we lost the good old Ralph from the Flash.

He started to delete those comments because he was ashamed of himself. He regrets what he wrote. I am pissed

So it's official. There is no redemption in our society. I hope you are all happy as you get torn too pieces. Tick tock. Clocks running out now.
Jason Lee Barnett
Jason Lee Barnett:
AND James Gunn lives on why? Compare them. Both worth firing for or not?
The Commenter Dragon
The Commenter Dragon:
Since Hartley was fired, it makes me wonder if they're either gonna find another actor to replace him as Ralph, or if they decided to just completely erase Ralph from the Flash period as if he never existed.

That's SJW's for you. Remember to never make an edgy joke because these things will cone after you decades later. They have no lives so want to ruin everyone elses.
Sarah Leite
Sarah Leite:
What the heck?! This is so dumb! Hartley is clearly sorry for his actions and he isn’t like that anymore. Isn’t one of the main topics about the flash is giving people a chance?! Like with Captain Cold, Golden Glider, Allegra, even Ralph?! But when it comes too real life nooo that lesson doesn’t apply anymore. They judged him by his past mistakes and they won’t give his a chance. This is so stupid
ShockWave ZERO
ShockWave ZERO:
This is seriously stupid. It’s like these decisions don’t allow for further evaluation of whether someone is the same person as before. It’s kind of reinforcing the notion that people can’t change or grow up. We live in a society where we hold people accountable for something they did a notable while back, and once it’s found- no evaluation for current character. You are done. It’s like the message you’re sending is that second chances don’t exist. Everything you did to better yourself, has amounted to nothing. That’s what it feels like.

Not promoting racism and what not. Just against this whole notion of a one solution fits all, that everything someone has done to become someone else that’s better has amounted to nothing. How are people supposed to believe they can change, learn, grow, evolve, if people just slam the doors every time? How many people have become hardened criminals and such because of this notion that there are no second chances?
Might as well say redemption is a lie.

I like how Ralph has homophobic comments, but was in a gay movie. He’s contradicting himself. I still feel sorry tho. He was amazing in the FLASH.

They have a right to fire Hartley.
That being said, The Flash can't do any redemption arcs/speeches anymore since the cast and crew don't believe in that.
Just make Barry Allen become an vindictive superhero who believes in absolutes in future seasons if there are going to be any.

DEAR CW...Movies should not involve politics!! WE WHO WATCH THE SHOW WANT HIM BACK!!! I WILL NOT WATCH WITHOUT HIM HE IS A COMICAL CHARACTER.
Joey Baseball
Joey Baseball:
He made himself very clear, that he was just trying to get attention. I don't think he deserves to get fired for that. Who hasn't said something crazy just to get attention? If that was not what was really in his heart, he should not have been fired. And I think the fact that he admitted openly that he was only trying to get attention comedy shows that that's not really how he feels.

I would be happy If next season Didn’t get anybody to watch cause of Hartley sawyer being fire. That would just convince them to bring him back I think atleast

I'm so very sorry that I told dark humor jokes on my twitter 6-10 years ago. I've been great friends with The Flash cast for years but because of these tweets they all hate me and I'm now an outcast and my career is ruined. I've since matured and don't make such jokes anymore but that doesn't matter. Thank you for ruining my life. -Hartley Sawyer

I don't watch the flash but this is so stupid. I bet everyone in the cast of that show has done questionable things but they're so quick to push someone away to keep a good image
Jiga
Jiga:
When he was introduced in the flash as Ralph the whole episode was dedicated to how we shouldn't judge people for their past and that people can change and they can become better person then they were in the past
And I'm pretty sure the show runners who are heartbroken by this probably aware of the tweets when they hired him in the first place

Samira Rahimi:
Nooooooo flash was so funny with him

Why TF would they fire him for mistakes he made in the past?
To be honest this sounds pointless, idiotic, childish, and downright a bad decision, Ralph played a HUGE part in The Flash's success, the way I see it firing him was a huge mistake.
Jlan From LF
Jlan From LF:
Guys when you think of it none of us have a right to judge one another, we all make mistakes and we shouldn’t see people on what happened in the past, that’s being blind sighted you should see the person for how he/she came out today. That was matters *proggression*

*CW you have failed The Flash!*

He's not a murderer, and he is not doing anything to harm anyone. Everyone make mistakes. I think he's regret of what he does. People need to learn about forgiving peoples mistakes, if is not who will do that!

In tv shows everyone forgives everyone, second chances, lots of compassionate words, standing by you blah blah blah. and in real life, the people that potray the characters who are compassionate to others, abandon and shame them. if he was a female and a person of color he wouldn't get fired and that's a fact. cw continues to dissapoint
