Ruby Rose Slams Her Girlfriend's Twin Sister for Alleged Homophobic Comment
Ruby Rose slammed her girlfriend's twin over her enthusiastic support of marriage equality, alleging that she had previously made a homophobic comment to Rose and her girlfriend
Ruby Rose slammed her girlfriend’s twin sister over her enthusiastic support of marriage equality after allegedly having made a homophobic comment in the past.
On Tuesday, a majority of Australians voted in favor of same-sex marriage in a non-binding survey, and numerous celebrities voiced their excitement on social media, including The Veronicas member Lisa Origliasso — whose twin sister and bandmate Jessica is currently dating the Orange is the New Black star.
” 🌈🌈🌈🌈 AUSTRALIA 🌈🌈🌈🌈 LOVE WINS!!!!!!!!!! #marriageequaility,” the band wrote on Twitter, which Lisa then retweeted.
But in a since-deleted tweet, Rose called out Lisa for allegedly having made a homophobic comment to Rose and Jessica a few months ago, according to a screenshot obtained by Perez Hilton.
“So glad to see Lisa Origliasso screaming in excitement abut the yes vote after telling us she thinks we should feel ‘lucky’ we don’t get stoned to death like they do in other countries and to get over it a few months ago… Really warms my heart,” Rose wrote.
After taking down her tweet, Rose, 31, appeared to try to bury the hatchet.
“It’s an emotional day,” she wrote. “I’m a human being and need to remind myself not to let the people below try and drag me down.”
“I do understand I need to be grateful for the baby steps. But it’s such a mixed feeling to comprehend paying 120 million to ask and see 6/10 people ‘voted’ in support of our community being able to have one part of equality — marriage. In a hypothetical non binding discussion,” she continued, referencing that despite the Australian population’s support, the final decision to legally recognize the union of same-sex couples is still up to Parliament.
“But my god thank you to everyone who voted yes,” she added. “You have most definitely saved lies by this gesture and I know how hard they made it to vote.”
Meanwhile, all appears well between Rose and Jessica: Rose later posted a series of adorable snaps of her and her girlfriend, who was getting some shut-eye in before the two boarded a flight.
“Look at my pet koala!” she captioned the first selfie.
“I’m always woke [though], because I’m her little protector,” she added.

Rose and Origliasso first dated back in 2008 and have since rekindled their romance.
In January, Rose gushed over her girlfriend at the premiere of xXx: Return of Xander Cage — which Rose starred in — saying, “Jess is the most amazing person.”
“We just jam every night,” she said. “We play music and sing and cook dinner, and she’s amazing. She’s wonderful…She’s always such a moral support for me and a moral compass.”
