In 2013, long before she earned acclaim on season three of “Orange is the New Black,” actress Ruby Rose was a popular Australian VJ and amateur DJ who was far away from her future viral success.
One of the first times Rose’s name crossed over into American media concerned a series of tweets that have since been deleted, where she bragged about having sex with singer Demi Lovato.
“Think ill take a few days off social media whilst @ddlovato’s friends attack me for being a ‘scorned ex-lover’ get over it!! I liked the hair,” Rose tweeted to her followers after getting harassed by fans of Demi.
“I’m like the one person Demi has slept with that didn’t sell on naked photos of her so eff off,” she wrote in an additional comment.
Rose has since deleted the tweets, but screenshots still exist.
After the initial hubbub, Rose silenced discussion of the matter, telling her fans she was over it.
“However I in no way initiated this, nor did I say something that wasn’t already written in the ridiculous post. One sided replies don’t cut it. However, love and peace to everyone. It is what is it.”
Two years later, Rose is on top of the world, as fans of all types flock to the small screen’s new queen.
