Actress Rachel True, who costarred in the 1996 cult favorite teen supernatural film The Craft, claims a convention refused to invite her to a reunion event and she believes racism is to blame.

True says her film’s other stars — Neve Campbell, Fairuza Balk, and Robin Tunney — were all invited, yet she was not. Moreover, she says this isn’t the first time she’s been left out of an event and that the convention has since replied that she’s definitely not invited now that she’s spoken out.

Starting last week, True posted on Twitter to share her experience with the upcoming convention, which was not named. 

Which is accurate: The film focuses on four friends who delve into witchcraft. True was even on the poster:

True then said that the convention firmly ruled out booking her because she complained publicly, posting a screenshot of a message that said: “We’re going to pass on Rachel, this was totally uncalled for.”

The actress also replied to a critic who accused her of being self-absorbed, saying, “This is not about self-absorption. It’s about racism, parity & [money] speaking up is costing me $ but may help younger folk coming up down the line achieve those things.”
