Loren Lott’s latest Tik Tok has more views than Y&R. She is regularly going viral on social media. That is a dream for any tv or film production. They actually pay people more if they have strong social media followings. This is yet another example of how embarrassing the racism in soaps is. Y&R never tried with her and she was so charismatic.

Mark Ruffalo says he tried so hard to get on a soap but they told him he was too ethnic https://mobile.twitter.com/yikesitsamy/status/1299966971664986112

I presume this is in relation to American soaps? Because I first became aware of Mark Ruffalo in the late 90’s (or early 00’s) from Australian soap opera Home And Away. I don’t recall much about his character other than he made a dramatic exit in a plane/helicopter
