No one should ever have to face racism and misogyny, but unfortunately, that's how Game of Thrones star Nathalie Emmanuel started her week.
This level of offensive hate and this racist mentality is something that should never be tolerated, but Emmanuel handles the verbal abuse with grace and support of those fighting against the same things. Her Instagram caption read:
Thanks for the support guys... obviously reported the guy. People keep asking why I didn’t show his name. Sometimes giving a person, like this, attention good or bad is exactly what they want. I’m not tryna give him any more shine beyond showing people this shit is happening.— Nathalie Emmanuel (@missnemmanuel) April 9, 2018
Not only did she take the fight to social media, shedding light on issues still prevalent to many, she also gave a shout out of support to those who deal with the same troubles. In addition to that, she didn't give this troll any additional attention, having blocked out their name in her Instagram post.
Here's to fighting the good fight and supporting women from every background! We hope her character,
