The Internet Now Wants To Cancel Sebastian Stan For Racist Post Row

They may play some of the most beloved heroes on the big screen, but many Marvel stars have come under fire on social media for various reasons in recent months. Remember when Ant-Man‘s Evangeline Lilly downplayed the danger of coronavirus a while back? Well, the latest to be in the hot seat is Bucky Barnes himself, Sebastian Stan.

Ahead of his return to the role in Disney Plus’ The Falcon and the Winter SoldierStan has become embroiled in controversy on Twitter, leading to the hashtag #sebastianstanisoverparty trending nationwide. The storm was whipped up by an Instagram post featuring the actor’s partner Alejandra Onieva dressed as a Geisha for what appeared to be an Asian-themed costume party.

When fans criticized the content of the photo as “racist,” both Oneiva and Stan began liberally blocking people, rather than making the apology that folks were after. And suffice it to say, that’s only caused more issues, with fans now calling to cancel the MCU star.

Of course, not everyone is jumping on board the #sebastianstanisoverparty bandwagon. Many are blasting fans for piling on something that they believe has been blown out of proportion.

Some are even arguing that Stan and Onieva have every right to block those who are hitting back at something that was posted two years ago and on neither of their accounts.

On the other hand, those on the opposite side feel that we should be listening to and not “invalidating the feelings of the Asian community.”

Of course, Stan and Onieva have also taken heat recently for their decision to go on vacation to Spain this month, despite the world being in the grips of a pandemic. Their trip was especially criticized after the star had previously remarked that he couldn’t imagine leaving New York during the COVID-19 quarantine.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, meanwhile, in which Sebastian Stan stars alongside Anthony Mackie, is expected to restart production again soon. It’s unknown when it’ll finally arrive on Disney Plus, but we imagine we’ll get at least the first half of it this year – if not the entire thing.
