If you’ve ever seen Austin and Ally, My Friend Dahmer, or Teen Beach Movie, then you know who Ross Lynch is.
Most recently, Lynch is known for his reoccurring role as Harvey Kinkle in the Netflix series: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The show is a dark iteration of the 1996 Warner Brother’s comedy, Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
In this chilling series (pun intended), Sabrina Spellman’s main love interest is none other than Kinkle. However, in Season 2 of the show, the two are broken up, and both pursue new love interests.
Spellman ends up with a warlock, and Kinkle begins dating Spellman’s best friend, Rosalind Walker.
However, their relationship became more than just a casual acting role. The two have been posting adorable photos together on Instagram since late January. Lynch posted a series of photos of him and Jaz Sinclair (Rosalind Walker) holding hands, while leaving the Balmain Fashion Week Men’s Show in Paris, France.
Although there was no verbal confirmation that the two were dating, fans saw this as an unofficial confirmation.
“Omg it’s official!!”, one fan commented. Another fan said that they “ship” their relationship.
From there on out, Sinclair and Lynch were posting a lot more of one another on their social medias. While a majority of the comments were positive, and excited for the couple, there were a handful of negative comments as well.
The negative comments were more focused on Sinclair’s race, than on the couple’s relationship as a whole. Derogatory, racist comments were sprinkled throughout many of their photos on Lynch’s Instagram.
Due to the awful hate that she’s been getting, Sinclair felt the need to limit her Instagram comments. Yesterday, however, Lynch decided to put a stop to all of this.
He took to Instagram to post various nature photos of the two, with the caption: “Yo guys whoever is being hateful to jasmine and I’s relationship (especially on a race basis wtf) can take a step back. We are both extremely happy. Thanks”.
Some of Lynch’s cast mates showed their support for the couple in the comment section. Luke Cooke (Lucifer Morningstar) responded with the following: “You attack her, you attack us! Love this mate xx”.
Lucy Davis (Aunt Hilda) brought some love and light to Lynch’s statement: “I love you both soooo much. You are GOLD. LOVE LOVE LOVE.”
Their fans also responded positively to the post, with one user calling it “ridiculous” that Lynch had to even address this.
Much like the old saying, “if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all”. Although some fans may be upset that their favorite heartthrob is in a relationship, that’s not a valid reason to attack someone with racist comments (or any hate, for that matter).
We wish Ross and Jaz the best of happiness throughout their relationship, and please remember to be kind to others.
