Veronica's Feud: Jess Origliasso releases emotional statement after Ruby Rose's twitter takedown

“[I've] struggled with people close to me, degrading my sexuality because of their own personal judgments or ignorance.”

Ruby Rose caused a stir earlier this week with a scathing tweet slamming her girlfriend’s twin’s reaction to the marriage survey result.
Now, Jess Origliasso has released an emotional statement almost definitely aimed at her sister. Well she says someone “close to her” caused “12 years” of “deep pain”, but c’mon.

After Ruby claimed the other Veronica had told them they “should feel ‘lucky’ we don’t get stoned to death like they do in other countries and to get over it a few months ago”, Jessica dug in the knife.
“With the current conversation that was happening in the lead up and outcome of the marriage equality results this week, I feel it is necessary to share some feelings,” she wrote.
“I may not have struggled with an inner turmoil, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t struggled with people close to me, degrading my sexuality because of their own personal judgments or ignorance.
“People can publicly support the LGBT community, but behind closed doors inflict deep pain because of their own inability to accept or understand you as a part of that community.
“That can be a particularly difficult and heartbreaking experience. But one that has been a private and real struggle in my life.
“For anyone struggling in silence, please know that you are not alone. And no matter what, you are free to be whoever you choose to be without question, or have your sexual preference reduced to fit anyone else’s expectations, or their ‘reality’ of you.
“We all do our best, and we all learn to open our minds and hearts. To do better and be better. I wish that for everyone. I would never wish to hurt anyone who has needed education and self-reflection in this area, but I also cannot defend the behaviour, or minimise the pain I have felt over 12 years.
“Wishing only love to be our path to understanding moving forward.”
Things get juicier with the knowledge Ruby unfollowed Lisa on Twitter back in April and Jess did the same thing in September.
Lisa doesn’t follow Ruby on any social media platform and the normally close sisters haven’t posted a photo together in months.
