'The Fosters' Elliot Fletcher Tells Fans He is Not Like His Character When it Comes to Hate Speech

Yesterday, a timely episode of The Fosters, “Welcome to the Jungler,” delves into an important and controversial topic: free speech vs. hate speech.

Elliot Fletcher‘s character Aaron supports free speech even if that includes hate speech, but Elliot himself does not agree with that attitude at all IRL.

“Aaron and I hold completely different viewpoints on free/hate speech,” he wrote in a note on Twitter yesterday (August 15). “I will never stand by people who are racist, homophobic, sexist, ableist, nazis/white supremacists in general.”

He then encourages his fans to “speak up,” go to rallies, and more to protect marginalized voices.

    Hate speech is a part of free speech. You don’t have to like the speech to defend someone’s right to say something offensive. The second we stop “I Disapprove of What You Say, But I Will Defend to the Death Your Right to Say it.” is the second we lose all our freedom, all our rights, because then the government can declare anything you say as hate speech, and punish you.
