These Women Were Trolled For Cosplaying As Wonder Woman And Gal Gadot Herself Swooped In For Back Up
"A real Amazon."
In addition to being one of the highest grossing films of the year, Wonder Woman has inspired thousands of fans across the globe since its release.
Amaya Suriyapperuma and Seshani Cooray are two such fans from Sri Lanka, who both decided to cosplay as the character at the Lanka Comic Con last month.
However, because some people are just rude, the duo found themselves in the crosshairs of a bunch of trolls who decided to body-shame them in a series of memes and hateful comments.
While the huge outpouring of support continued, things seemed to have peaked for them when Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins tweeted her approval of their outfits.
But then Wonder Woman Gal Gadot herself joined the party, pretty much shutting down anything the trolls had been targeting the women for.
"I was so happy when everyone started supporting us, but even more thrilled when I found out about Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot's tweets," Cooray told BuzzFeed.
"When you see one of your favourite idols appreciating your hard work and complimenting you, It's just a dream come true," she added.
