It was lying

“I didn’t really walk off the set,” she told Shepard. “Once I sprained my ankle and had to go for X-rays. Maybe that’s what they mean.” According to Ferreira, the rumored feud took on a life of its own, leading fans to confront him personally for behaving like a victim of a season two story arc. “I’m always like, ‘No, it’s okay, promise. It’s cool,'” she said.

I put all my care and love into her And I hope you guys can feel it. Love.” You Katherine Hernandez.”
