Online Homophobe Calls Out 'Demons' Aussie DJ Ruby Rose and Fiancée Phoebe Dahl, Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres not Spared

Aussie DJ Ruby Rose, her fiancée and granddaughter of author Roald Dahl, Phoebe Dahl are demons possessed, according to an online homophobe in an open letter to homosexual A-list celebrities. Apparently, Ellen DeGeneres and her Aussie wife Portia de Rossi are demons masquerading as humans too. In this time and age, bashing and hating on homosexuals may still be an unfortunate norm for some, but calling them demons possessed is quite laughable. Precisely what Ruby Rose and Phoebe Dahl did.
The woman of the evening clutched wife de Rossi's hand as the couple celebrated DeGeneres' successful Oscar hosting stint while making the rounds during a 40-minute stop at the Governors Ball.
News.com.au reports that Phoebe Dahl, the granddaughter of famous author Roald Dahl and the cousin of model Sophie Dahl received an open letter that spew vitriol against homosexuals. "You are not homosexual woman, you are demon possessed. In some woman like you Rubi Rose, a male devil might live," the open letter reads.
The letter is not content with Ruby Rose and Phoebe Dahl. It has to include Australia-born Portia de Rossi and her wife Ellen DeGeneres too, possibly the most famous out and proud lesbian to date.
"And in the persons like you Portia (Portia de Rossi), a female demon might live, and in Ellen (Ellen DeGeneres) there is a possibly a male demon, and these devils, are using your human bodies, for the purpose of being seen, in the world, and being able to "feel and enjoy" sexual sensations, and also produce babies."
Rose did not keep the letter for themselves and for them to personally stew on. Instead, she posted the letter on her Instragram and said, "@faircloth_supply got a great email to myself ellen and portia... not that we know Portia and ellen.. but you know... we will pass it on.. #devilshit #befreeandenjoy #breakfree."
Followers of the enigmatic DJ were quick to respond and show their support.
"Reading things like this always makes my stomach drop. #loveislove," one responded.
"Can't help but laugh... Unfortunate how ignorant some people are.. If I have a devil in me, I'm glad it's there. I love my life and my wife :)," another supported added.
Rose came out as a lesbian when she was 12 and had already undergone a lot of homophobic taunts, even requiring hospitalisation when she was 16. Her outspokenness and fearlessness however, made her one of the "25 Most Influential Gay and Lesbian Australians" by Same Same, which is an Australian online gay and lesbian community established since 2008.
She's very open with her relationship with Phoebe Dahl too, an American fashion designer among other things. In fact, while spinning Avicii's hit on the decks at 40th gay Pride festival in San Diego this year, Ruby even stole a kiss from Phoebe (already her fiancée) for everyone to see, Mail Online UK reported.
