Appalled, Best Friend, and Butt: Out of Office - Business Travel Re: Melissa Benoist Alienating LGBT Fans of SupegirInbox x o whom it may concern, During the Supergirl cast's first day at San Diego Comic Con, your client Melissa Benoist exhibited some behavior that deeply upset a large portion of her LGBT fanbase as well as supporters of Supergirl in general. It is not my intention to defame Melissa or spew mindless hate; her words and actions today made a noticeable portion of her audience feel not only uncomfortable but also unwelcome as far as supporting her role as Kara on Supergirl Melissa openly, on a live video stream, participated in singing a song with Jeremy Jordan and other cast members that aggressively mocked the concept of Melissa's character having romantic feelings for Katie McGrath's character Lena Luthor. The relationship between these characters, named 'Supercorp' by Supergirl fans, was made an enormous joke by the star of this show. Melissa, Jeremy, and the other cast members at Comic Con were singing and yelling about how Kara Danvers and Lena Luthor would never be more than friends, shouting at the top of their lungs that those two female characters would never see each other in a romantic light in their whole lives. They danced and clapped about the incomprehensibility of a woman loving another woman, save for Katie McGrath and David Harewood who appeared uncomfortable in their already isolated positions behind the couch that the rest of the cast was situated on. The song celebrating how ridiculous the concept of female best friends eventually dating each other finally died down, and Jeremy Jordan said, "l think I'm going to get destroyed for what l just did. I debunked Supercorp." In response, Melissa Benoist said, "It was pretty brave. Is bravery making fun of girls of all ages who see themselves in the characters on a TV show that brands itself as feminist? Is bravery spitting in the faces of non-heterosexual women who find safety and enjoyment in the relationship between Kara and Lena? Is bravery yelling and singing to young girls who are unsure of their sexualities that there is no way someone could ever fall in love with their best friend and have it mean something besides being the butt of a joke? On behalf of LGBT women specifically, I am incredibly disappointed. Watching Melissa make fun of people who see a blossoming relationship between Kara and Lena was hurtful to the point that many are unsure of whether or not we can enjoy her show again. For someone who claims feminism and empowerment, Melissa let down a lot of supporters today by being passive and participatory in an act of disrespect and humiliation initiated by her castmates.

Appalled, Best Friend, and Butt: Out of Office - Business Travel Re: Melissa Benoist Alienating LGBT Fans of
 SupegirInbox x

 o whom it may concern,
 During the Supergirl cast's first day at San Diego Comic Con, your client Melissa Benoist exhibited some
 behavior that deeply upset a large portion of her LGBT fanbase as well as supporters of Supergirl in
 general. It is not my intention to defame Melissa or spew mindless hate; her words and actions today made
 a noticeable portion of her audience feel not only uncomfortable but also unwelcome as far as supporting
 her role as Kara on Supergirl
 Melissa openly, on a live video stream, participated in singing a song with Jeremy Jordan and other cast
 members that aggressively mocked the concept of Melissa's character having romantic feelings for Katie
 McGrath's character Lena Luthor. The relationship between these characters, named 'Supercorp' by
 Supergirl fans, was made an enormous joke by the star of this show. Melissa, Jeremy, and the other cast
 members at Comic Con were singing and yelling about how Kara Danvers and Lena Luthor would never be
 more than friends, shouting at the top of their lungs that those two female characters would never see each
 other in a romantic light in their whole lives. They danced and clapped about the incomprehensibility of a
 woman loving another woman, save for Katie McGrath and David Harewood who appeared uncomfortable
 in their already isolated positions behind the couch that the rest of the cast was situated on.
 The song celebrating how ridiculous the concept of female best friends eventually dating each other finally
 died down, and Jeremy Jordan said, "l think I'm going to get destroyed for what l just did. I debunked
 Supercorp." In response, Melissa Benoist said, "It was pretty brave.
 Is bravery making fun of girls of all ages who see themselves in the characters on a TV show that
 brands itself as feminist? Is bravery spitting in the faces of non-heterosexual women who find
 safety and enjoyment in the relationship between Kara and Lena? Is bravery yelling and singing to
 young girls who are unsure of their sexualities that there is no way someone could ever fall in love
 with their best friend and have it mean something besides being the butt of a joke?

 On behalf of LGBT women specifically, I am incredibly disappointed. Watching Melissa make fun
 of people who see a blossoming relationship between Kara and Lena was hurtful to the point that
 many are unsure of whether or not we can enjoy her show again. For someone who claims
