1996's cult classic The Craft stars four actresses, Rachel True, Neve Campbell, Robin Tunney and Fairuza Balk. However, True, the only Black co-star among the four, is routinely left out of conventions and events. True has apparently reached her limit, since she has put the conventions on blast on Twitter.

True wrote on Twitter last Friday about the discrimination she's had to endure throughout her time in Hollywood, citing how press junkets for The Craft would also leave her out of the conversation. She wrote that she was even left out of the MTV Movie Awards whereas the other co-stars were asked to appear.

She later uploaded a screenshot of the convention's response. According to the screenshot, the convention seems to claim that they were going to pass on True because of her tweets. However, True writes that she believes they weren't going to invite her anyway.

Fans of The Craft, including Cree Summer, actresses Liz Jenkins and Parisa Fitz-Henley and Busy Tonight showrunner Caissie St. Onge, responded to the Twitter thread with compassion and commiseration.

 

True will return to her horror roots when she joins Jordan Peele on Shudder's documentary Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror, which will drop Feb. 7.

 

UPDATE: After this article was published, True says she will be appearing at a convention soon with the other The Craft ladies!
