In her caption, she wrote, “I do feel silenced. I do feel dehumanized. I do feel paralyzed. I’ve put blood, sweat, and tears into this role (over & over & over again), I’ve grown UP in this character’s shoes.”
Moriarty proceeded to thank the original writer of the article @butcherscanary. The writer pointed out that for her character ‘Annie’, Moriarty’s torment does not end when the credits start but continues to impact her real life via the online misogynistic trolling.
“I’ve opened up a vein for this role and this kind of trolling is exactly what this role (Annie) would speak out against and c) everyone’s going through their own battle(s); let’s not add to that,” Moriarty wrote.” I will never intentionally (and ESPECIALLY) publicly add to yours. This has only strengthened my empathy muscle and to anyone who comes at me: I see you, I I don’t hate you, I only empathize and forgive.”
