The latest episode of “The Last of Us” has caused quite a stir among viewers due to its portrayal of a romantic relationship between two female characters. While many fans have praised the show for its honest and authentic depiction of LGBTQ+ love, others have been quick to criticize and express their disapproval.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, actress Storm Reid, who plays Riley in the series, had a message for those who are opposed to the show’s portrayal of same-sex love: “Verify your priorities.”
Reid went on to explain that “The Last of Us” is all about telling important stories and exploring the human experience. “That’s what good storytelling is all about,” she said. “We’re telling the stories of people who are part of this world.”
As for those who are concerned about the love between two consenting adults, Reid had this to say: “It’s 2023. If you’re worried about who I love, you need to reassess your priorities. Love is beautiful, and the fact that people have something to say about it is just nonsense.”
Reid’s words are a powerful reminder that love knows no boundaries and that everyone deserves the right to love and be loved. As “The Last of Us” continues to push boundaries and challenge stereotypes, it’s clear that the show’s message of acceptance and inclusivity is more important than ever.
