It’s tough when a show you’ve been on for so long starts, well, sucking. We still think that Gossip Girl has sunbeams shining out of its nether regions, and we even love it when it beats us over the head with less-than-stellar storylines, but we acknowledge that some of the fizz may have gone flat in Season 6.

But here’s the thing: no matter who the actors on the show may be now, Gossip Girl is responsible for making them into household names. So, we were a little shocked when we saw that a not-so-nice fan tweet about the show was retweeted by one of the GG actors.

The tweet said, “I'm just happy that @itsmeleighton @ZuzannaWanda @matt_settle & Penn Badgley are finally free fr this awful show. @ggwriters @fakeempireteam.”

It’s all well and good to exercise that whole “freedom of speech” thing, but when Matthew Settle (Rufus) retweeted the post, we were shocked. After all, Rufus has been a central character on the show since day one, and Gossip Girl is by far the most noteworthy gig on his resume.

What do you think: Is all fair in love and Twitter, or should actors stop biting the hand that feeds them?
