On 7 August 2018, it was reported that Rose had been cast as Batwoman in an Arrowverse crossover. Her role has been noted as the first openly lesbian lead superhero in television. Batwoman aired on The CW on 6 October 2019. Rose's casting as Batwoman was met by backlash on social media and generated intense criticism. DC Comics, which owns the rights to the longtime comic book superheroine Batwoman, reintroduced the character in 2006 as a lesbian of Jewish descent. Some online commenters criticized Rose for not being Jewish, while the main focus of the scrutiny was the assertion that the fact she identifies as genderfluid made her "not gay enough" for the role. Rose quit Twitter and deactivated public commenting on her Instagram account following the backlash. Prior to leaving Twitter, she released a tweet responding to the negative reaction, stating, "Where on earth did 'Ruby is not a lesbian therefore she can’t be batwoman' come from — has to be the funniest most ridiculous thing I’ve ever read. " Rose called for unity between women and minorities, imploring women and the LGBT community to be kinder and more supportive of each other.
