Being an actor is tough, especially when you’re only 7-years-old!
Marvel fans have caused an uproar within the MCU fan community because 7-year-old Lexi Rabe, who plays Morgan Stark won’t take photos with them.
The young actor’s parents who monitor her Instagram account have begged people to stop bullying her and their family online. What people forget is Lexi is only 7. She’s not an adult like Tom Holland who plays Morgan’s honorary big brother, Peter Parker or Robert Downey Jr who plays her father in Avengers: Endgame.
No child should get harassed online. Being bullied is what drove Jake Lloyd out of acting when he got bullied for his role as Anakin Skywalker. Also, it almost drove Ahmed Best (Jar Jar Binks) to commit suicide.
Leave little Lexi and her family alone! If she’s not allowed to take photos with you, don’t get huffy about it! She’s being taught the lesson of stranger danger, which is something people don’t appear to comprehend. If we had to guess, most of these trolls aren’t parents and spend too much time online and trying to get their 15 minutes of fame by posing with celebrities.
Let Lexi Be A Kid!
Let Lexi be a regular little girl. Think about how it affects her. Therefore, she’s a regular human being who deserves to grow up like every other child. If she quits acting, we’ll know why because fans were trying to push her.
Have a heart, people! Leave the Rabe family alone. Find a more useful way to occupy your time than harassing innocent little girls online. A non-acting person can have personal boundaries. Actors get to have privacy as they are normal working people. It’s not selfishness on their part. They have strict rules they need to follow. You should respect that! If people were throwing themselves at you and asking for photos or autographs all the time would you tell them ‘no’?
