The Flash Grant Gustin Candice Patton

The Flash‘s Grant Gustin has taken to social media with a response to the racist attacks that were recently made against co-star Candice Patton.

Grant Gustin took to his personal Instagram earlier this week. The Flash star shared his support for LGBTQ+ rights, leading to some users posting racists comments aimed at Candice Patton. The actress has played Grant Gustin’s love-interest and wife on The CW’s series since it began back in 2014. The racist comments came from fans who have a problem with Cancide Patton playing a white character from the comics. In Candice Patton’s defense, Grant Gustin assured that he will be condemning the racist attacks from now on and that Candice Patton knows he has her back.

But that wasn’t all. Grant Gustin took it even one step further, when he shared a video on his Instagram story, and gave his full support for Candice Patton and making it crystal clear for fans. You can hear Grant Gustin’s full comments on the racist attacks against The Flash co-star Candice Patton in the video below.
