Ruby Rose is exiting Batwoman, leaving fans of the DC Arrowverse show in shock. While Rose is stepping down from the role of Kate Kane / Batwoman, the series will continue into season 2, with a new actress apparently taking over the role. That’s a lot of big developments in the world of Batwoman, and fans are definitely still trying to process, but one thing is clear: there are a lot of fans of Ruby Rose‘s Batwoman that are heartbroken right now. And they are not shy about sharing that pain on social media.

A lot of fans are definitely bummed, by respect the obviously hard choice that Ruby Rose is making.

Your casting move, The CW… Good luck with this one…
Sorry… Not Sorry
Ruby Rose was NEVER my Batwoman

Then again, maybe the recasting won’t be so hard, after all?
She Was Not the Problem
There is many issues that I have with the @CWBatwoman show, but #RubyRose was not one of them. Wish her the best, and for the @BatwomanWriters not to squander the character of Batwoman for the next person to get the role.

For whatever reasons fans may not like Batwoman, it seems there’s general acknowledgement that Ruby Rose wasn’t the issue.
Need Them Deets
anyways the powers that be at the cw/batwoman must have really not liked ruby rose to actually let the star/title character of the show get out of their, no doubt, multi-year contract. i want the details. pic.twitter.com/bUsjE5NtPu

This is only the beginning. Batwoman fans are already digging for the details on why Rose is leaving the show – and the rumor mill is clearly already churning.
Do We Even Want to Know?
Do I even want to know the real reason Ruby Rose left Batwoman?

While a lot of fans are calling for the explanation of what led to this, this fan is perhaps asking the wiser question…
Why So Serious?
