Lesbian Steven Universe Artist Hounded Off Social Media

Steven Universe

A gay storyboard artist for the children’s TV show Steven Universe has deleted her Twitter after being harassed by fans. Lauren Zuke, an openly gay staffer on the show, posted a drawing of two characters Lapis and Peridot on her Tumblr.

Fans were angry Zuke was showing support for shipping the two characters, instead the more popular pairing of Peridot and Amethyst. They accused Zuke of ‘queer-baiting’ them with a same-sex relationship on the show, according to the Daily Dot.

This in despite Steven Universe having a confirmed lesbian couple by the creators and regularly explores LGBT themes and diversity.
