Ruby Rose has deleted her twitter account after she received heavy backlash for being cast as lesbian superhero Batwoman in a new CW series.

As of Sunday, Ruby's Twitter account was no where to be found and instead landed viewers to a page that simply read: "Sorry, that page doesn't exist!"

The starlet faced heavy criticism after she was cast in the role, including that she isn't a good enough actress and she isn't Jewish, unlike the character of Kate Kane in Batwoman, the Daily Mail reports.

Ruby, 32, took to Twitter on Thursday to respond to the outrage, writing: "I wish we would all support each other and our journey."

She continued: "When women and when minorities join forces we are unstoppable... when we tear each other down it's much more hurtful than from any group. But hey I love a challenge."

However, Ruby was specifically responding to a Tweet by one user, which was in fact supportive of the decision to cast her in the role.

The user had mocked the outrage, Tweeting: "Queer women: Please cast out queer actors in queer roles! CW: *casts Ruby Rose* Queer women: This is an attack."

After Ruby's response, the Twitter user replied: '''When women and minorities join forces'... because apparently those are two separate groups with no overlapping members? You're telling me, a black woman, that women and black people should link up. BRUH."

The Twitter user added: "And I guess I'm not allowed to make jokes because it's more painful when I do it which is a new level of white nonsense I've never seen before. And as a reminder, THE JOKE WASN'T MAKING FUN OF HER TO BEGIN WITH."

Ruby then tried to clear up the confusion, Tweeting: "Oh my word. I'm am very sorry it read that way. Truly... I responded to you because I agreed with what you said even if you wrote it in jest and I thought we were on the same page, so I was saying I just wish women and the LGBT community supported each other more."

The actor later added: "Again, apologies, I was writing to you, not paying or giving attention to any negative because I'm really happy and excited but commenting on that topic that my wish was we were all a little kinder and more supportive of each other."

Ruby's casting as Batwoman is set to make her the first openly gay lead in a live-action superhero series.

The Orange Is The New Black actress took to social media to rave about the project.

"The Bat is out of the bag and I am beyond thrilled and honoured," the Australian starlet wrote on Instagram.

"I'm also an emotional wreck... because this is a childhood dream.

"This is something I would have died to have seen on TV when I was a young member of the LGBT community who never felt represented on TV and felt alone and different."
