Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch, known for playing the loveable and quirky Luna Lovegood in the series, hails from County Louth, in Ireland. The actress was, therefore, understandably excited to see her home nation vote overwhelmingly in favor of marriage equality last week. When the votes were in, she took to Instagram to celebrate the 'Fab Gay Day':

However, when some anti-gay bigots took to leaving nasty comments on the post, Lynch published an open letter on her Facebook page. Here's some of what she had to say:

"I am making a special request to all of you today in light of an ugly instagram thread that is really bothering me. Simply, if you are someone who perceives homosexuality as 'disgusting' or 'fucked up' or 'unnatural', will you do me a kindness and please unfollow me on all social media platforms. And then block me."

She goes on:

"And on a not-unrelated note, why are you following me? I think it's safe to assume that the majority of you on here clicked 'like' on account of my portrayal of the character 'Luna Lovegood' in the Harry Potter films (Mackenzie Price fans...gosh, I am sorry but you're a bit off track here). The clue is in the name, people! Luna Lovegood's love is a GOOD kind of love. It is not conditional or possessive or needy or demanding. It doesn't fall apart the moment you expose a piece of yourself that is unconventional or even unbecoming. Luna is a character who accepts all people and creatures in all forms, loves them for exactly what they are and who is constantly in awe at the diversity, strangeness and newness of each being she encounters.

Head over to her Facebook page to read the full letter, and show her some of the uncondiitonal love she dishes out.
