Morgan Saylor, who plays Dana, claims the venom doesn't bother her. She told The Daily Beast:
Characters are not always supposed to be loved. You could look at most characters and see mixed reactions. I don't know. I don't take it personally. I don't know completely if it's a sexism thing.
But now internet hate for Dana seems to have kicked up a gear, taking on an unpleasantly violent tone.
Wait, an outpouring of hatred for a highly-strung female character? This all seems very familiar.
