Despite the fact that Marvel actors are adored by millions of fans all across the globe, some of them aren't immune to getting lambasted by critics on social media especially after a controversial rumor about them surfaces online.
Over the last couple of months, stars like Chris Pratt, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, and just recently, Mark Ruffalo have all fallen victim to cancel culture which virtually proves that nobody is safe.
Now, off the success of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Sebastian Stan is the latest MCU celebrity to draw flak from fans. We reported recently that the hashtag #RIPSebastianStan trended on Twitter for no reason but as it turns out, the Bucky Barnes actor is being dragged into an issue over his alleged racism.
It all began when fans found out that Stan liked a video on Instagram of a man saying that white people should be allowed to use the N-word. It instantly sparked outrage within the Twitter community who are convinced that Stan is siding with the guy's sentiments about the derogatory term typically used against black people. Not only that, but Sebastian is also getting "canceled" for dating his current girlfriend who is allegedly a racist. Check out some of the reactions here:

The way that I can't mind my own business on Tumblr because I find out that Sebastian Stan decided to like (agree with) a video of a white man saying the n word with his whole chest, shortly after he got dragged for his racist Take A Knee meme. Can't make this shit up. pic.twitter.com/n5qlnVVpC3— JAY-duh (@ItsJayMone) May 26, 2021
I've been following Sebastian Stan's career since 2006, until today he was one of my favorite western actors, but I can't tolerate anyone who thinks it's funny when a white guy uses the N word in a joke. It's f*cking 2021 and no one gets to play the uneducated card anymore.— (@mon_jamais_vu) May 27, 2021

It really hurts me to say this. I loved him a lot as an actor but I can’t condone someone’s problematic, racist and it even sounds to be pedophilic behavior. I will no longer be stanning #SebastianStan for this reason. pic.twitter.com/dhjSv1rMet— Mads LOVES SOUR. (@amadwomann) May 29, 2021

Stan has yet to respond to the allegations but I gotta say, I find it ridiculous that the actor is getting ridiculed all over social media just because of a video he liked on Instagram. We're not even sure if he liked it because he agrees with the guy's opinion or he liked it just for the heck of it. The accusations are completely baseless but hey, it's a recurring theme in terms of cancel culture so I'm not entirely shocked anymore.
