Henry Cavill’s performances have always left audiences speechless, whether it’s as Superman, the Witcher, Sherlock Holmes, a secret agent, or simply just as he is.
Fans were shocked, however, when our original Geralt of Rivia, Henry Cavill, transferred the torch to fellow actor Liam Hemsworth for the forthcoming seasons of The Witcher. On October 29, our beloved Superman celebrity announced on the Internet that he will depart the series after season 3.
Gaming personality Frosk tried defaming Henry Cavill
While many reacted to Cavill’s departure from the franchise with mixed feelings ranging from regret at the wasted potential of his casting to satisfaction that the actor no longer had to work with such tainted material, Frosk saw an opportunity to morality signal.
Former network anchor Indiana “Frosk” Black has attempted – and failed – to paint former Netflix’s The Witcher star Henry Cavill as problematic in an apparent move to keep her relevance following the failure of G4’s recent comeback attempt.
“Henry Cavil said some very questionable things around #MeToo and dated a 19-year-old as 30+,” the former Xplay host wrote. “Seeing people throw themselves at his feet for The Witcher is weird. The show is whatever at best.”
Cavill’s “questionable” #MeToo comments, according to Frosk, are a reference to an interview the actor gave to GQ Australia in 2018.
When asked about the movement, Cavill stated, “Stuff has to change obviously” before briefly pausing and subsequently adding, “[but] There’s something wonderful about a man chasing a woman.”
Meanwhile, Frosk’s remark about him having “dated a 19-year-old” relates to Cavill’s ex-girlfriend Tara King, a British lady with whom he had a brief relationship between 2015 – 2016.
Frosk gets trolled online for defaming Henry Cavill
While Frosk certainly anticipated her tweet to earn her the admiration and praise of her more gender- and identity-politics-focused contemporaries, practically everyone who read it – even her admirers and supporters – disagreed and trolled her.
“As someone who is 31, I can’t imagine ever dating a teenager,” she remarked, looking for any justification to defend her original point of view. “We are in vastly different life stages. So while it may be legal, most of those relationships are pretty icky with a power imbalance.”
“I follow you because I support you,” one admirer tweeted. “I enjoyed your outburst, and I believe many people completely missed your point. I support you in the same way that I support a man who was in a loving consenting relationship with another adult.”
Frosk then attempted to explain her shaming of Cavill on the basis that he briefly dated former The Mandalorian actor Gina Carano, finding herself on the wrong end of the very debate she had created. Finally, failing to get genuine backing, Frosk ended her wild swinging with a pitiful attempt to depict her detractors as ‘creeps.’
