Netflix is showing support for Elliot Page via social media after Twitter users got the actor’s deadname trending on Twitter. The Netflix Geeked Twitter account shared a tweet featuring Elliot Page’s name repeated several times. In a follow-up to the thread, the account warned that it would be blocking anyone that used the deadname in a tweet response.
Fans of Page were quick to get the trending topic removed on Tuesday, encouraging fans and anyone who supported equality and were against hate speech to assist in getting it removed. Twitter itself has included deadnaming as violating its own terms and anti-hate speech rules. This has rightfully led to questions as to why it was allowed to trend in the first place.
