LaMonica Garrett has been receiving hate over being responsible for Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen dying in the Arrowverse.
Now that the Arrowverse crossover Crisis On Infinite Earths has come to an end and the dust has settled, LaMonica Garrett seems to be on the bitter end of receiving hate. Previously in the Arrowverse, Stephen Amell’s Oliver made a deal with LaMonica Garrett’s Monitor to spare the life of The Flash and Supergirl. LaMonica Garrett’s Monitor revealed that Oliver would die in the upcoming Crisis. LaMonica Garrett’s Monitor ended up telling the truth, as Stephen Amell’s Oliver ultimately did sacrifice himself during the crossover event.
Now that Stephen Amell has officially retired from the Arrowverse, LaMonica Garrett is getting hate for what his character did to Oliver Queen. Except, the thing is, LaMonica Garrett didn’t write any of the material that resulted in Stephen Amell’s Arrowverse death. Arrowverse star LaMonica Garrett took to Twitter to share a hateful message he had received over the death of Stephen Amell’s character.

Obviously, LaMonica Garrett had nothing to do with Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen dying in the Arrowverse, something that makes messages like these even more hurtful. Arrowverse actors have received numerous threats and hateful messages over the years due to writing and character choices that they aren’t responsible for. Unfortunately, it’s a recurring trend that shows that some fans continue to be toxic and bitter, especially towards the people that bring some of their favorite characters to life. Hopefully, as the shock of Stephen Amell’s character death dissipates, LaMonica Garrett can catch a break from some of the Arrowverse’s most toxic fans.
