Lysette, who plays Marnie Nightingale, responded to people on Twitter who called her to say nothing publicly about Rachel’s accusations.

She wrote, “Oh, I’m going to talk about … a place of compassion and FACT … but I will NOT be bullied in a safe, white and rash rhetoric. ”

But when Lysette doubled her position, Jesse Donovan actor Luke Jerdy retweeted her and warned her not to be “hurtful.”

He wrote, “If you want FACTS … don’t hesitate to ask me DM. I was there when one of the incidents with Rachel happened, I heard it with my own ears. We are now patiently awaiting a response from Hollyoaks.

Luke claimed that he went to see the Hollyoaks bosses after the incident, but nothing was done and wrote to Rachel after his original message that he would “stand with you, support you and will do it” always. It’s time to really change. ”

“Did Black Lives Matter when I was told” You are all the same “by a makeup artist you used, and remains employed until this day? ”

The former X Factor competitor was responding to a video posted by the series that featured her on screen Aunt Kelle Bryan.

Rachel then went on to detail some of the list issues at her workplace – including the lack of diversity in the management team and the shocking insults of a senior production member.

Rachel continued, “Does Black Lives really matter to you if in the past four years at Hollyoaks, I’ve only worked with one black director? ”

Suggesting it only scratched the surface, Rachel added, “Honestly, the list goes on.

“The presence of a black actor named Hollyoaks to show that the work is in progress is not as progressive as they think. In fact, very little is done behind the scenes. ”

Many of her co-stars came to support her, including Karl Collins, who plays his father on screen Louis Loveday, wrote in response: “Well … it will not be surprising that I love this woman I call affectionately “darta!” ” “
