She was thankful for the opportunity and happy to be a part of the DC universe. Rose also mentioned that it wasn’t an easy decision for her by any means, while also cryptically adding that “those who know, know..”
Reportedly, Rose was not happy while filming for the first season, and her behavior eventually made things difficult for everyone on set. It seemed like this wouldn’t go on for another season and eventually led to her exit from the show.
Rose went on to mention that she stayed silent all this while because she chose to, but wanted her fans to know how much she loved and adored them. Rose also stated that she was looking forward to the next season and playfully ended her message saying, “hangs up cowl and cape.”
