so, update: the thing everyone is coming at laverne for is for having read a letter from synthia, a trans woman convicted on a bunk rape charge

synthia was a member of the latin kings, and was sent to clean an apartment to help get rid of a body

she went there in a rush, and was still wearing a skirt while getting rid of the body

someone witneessed it happening, and saw synthia in a skirt, and decided to add on to her story, that synthia wasnt just cleaning the apartment, but had also raped and killed the girl

accusations of rape, and especially of pedophilia/being unsafe to be around children r EXTRMELY common accusations at trans women of color simply for existing

the witness changed their story a few times

synthias now in jail for a lot longer than she would be on just the original charge

and laverne is now being targeted for having read a letter from synthia

this is a very, very easy way for twefs to attack trans women of color, because they KNOW that most ppl wont bother to fact check, most ppl wont bother to read up on it, most ppl who nominally support trans women will hear that and go “oh no, well, just goes to show u cant trust celebrities”

ppl like to make out like laverne landing a role on a tv show means that trans women of color r somehow no longer oppressed as a class, but the fact is that laverne was getting shit for her role from the start, and ppl will take any excuse they can to point to her, and to point at synthia, gladly lap up bogus accusations and go “SEE! TRANS WOMEN OF COLOR R DANGEROUS PPL!”

dont fall for this shit

do research

fact check

spread the truth

dont let a smear campaign against trans women of color go unchecked
