An official Twitter account for The Boys posts a statement from Homelander attempting to discredit Starlight’s accusations in “Herogasm.”
The following article contains spoilers for Season 3, Episode 6 of The Boys“Herogasm,” now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
Homelander, played by Antony Starr in The Boyshas issued an official statement condemning the “spurious allegations” made by Erin Moriarty’s Starlight at the conclusion of the recent “Herogasm” episode.
The official Twitter account for Vought International, the villainous global conglomerate in the Prime Video series, posted an in-universe statement attempting to discredit Starlight’s scathing public resignation. “The recent accusations made by Annie January, codename Starlight, on a recent social media livestream in no way reflect Vought International as a whole,” the tweet reads. “Vought assures our shareholders that we will use the full power of the American Legal System to fight these spurious allegations. We can also confirm that January has been terminated, and her status as co-captain of The Seven rescinded, effective immediately.”
The statement, which was supposedly written by Homelander, continues by calling Starlight “a glory hound” and claiming that she “became hysterical with rage” after Homelander dumped her. “Sadly, her crazed jealousy has boiled over into insurrectionist territory and has made a reconciliation impossible,” the message reads. “We ultimately regret making January a member of The Seven. Our goal is, and always will be: the advancement of the American people and the expansion of liberty across the world.”
Multiple similar in-universe social media posts have been made as a part of the marketing campaign for The Boys‘ third season. One recent example is a post congratulating Starlight on having “more [Instagram followers] than notable celebrities like Seth Rogen,” who executive produces the series. Rogen recently used his own Twitter account to explain his recent cameo appearance in Season 3’s fifth episode. “Just to clarify, in [The Boys] cinematic universe ‘Seth Rogen’ is an actor who stars in films with Black Noir,” Rogen tweeted. “And that actor also goes by the alias SirCumsAlot779.”
The Boyswhich is a loose adaptation of the comic book series of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, follows the titular team of vigilantes’ war against Vought International and the corrupt superheroes on their payroll. Homelander, the leader of Vought’s most famous superhero team, the Seven, has been praised by many fans of the show due to Starr’s performance as the villainous supe. Some fans are even pushing for the actor to play the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s version of the iconic X-Men character Wolverine, with one fan showing off a rather impressive piece of fan art.
New episodes of The Boys are available to stream Fridays on Prime Video.
