Suki Waterhouse slams Gossip Girl… as her boyfriend Robert Pattinson is seen after a tennis match

She’s been dating actor Robert Pattinson since 2018.

But Suki Waterhouse, 29, didn’t care to have the spotlight shined on her relationship after the revived Gossip Girl featured a joke about her.

The model and actress was offended after one of the show’s characters dismissively referred to her as a ‘nobody’ in an off-hand joke.

Ouch! Suki Waterhouse, 29, slammed the revived Gossip Girl on Twitter on Friday for a joke her relationship with Robert Pattinson, 35, that called her a ‘nobody’; seen in 2019 in LA

In the fourth episode of the new show’s first season, Luna (played by Zion Moreno) mentions Waterhouse while giving her friend Zoya (Whitney Peak) tips on how to increase her social media presence to help her get closer to Obie (Eli Brown).

‘When are you going to get it? As far as the press is concerned, he’s R-Patz and you’re Suki Nobody,’ she says.

In since-deleted tweets, Suki made it clear that she didn’t appreciate being the overlooked half of a celebrity couple.

‘Another day to be reminded that women can also be the patriarchy,’ she wrote, according to Glamour.  

She included a screenshot of Luna and Monet (Savannah Lee Smith) saying ‘F*** the patriarchy’ from the series.

The catwalk star also tagged Lila Feinberg, who wrote the episode, though that doesn’t mean she necessarily wrote the line in question, as other writers likely contribute to the scripts.

Later, she suggested the joke was also an example of ‘sexism’ while reinforcing the patriarchy. 

‘Seeing critiques of patriarchy and sexism, then I get name checked as somebody’s “nobody” girlfriend. Make it make sense!’ she wrote.

The new Gossip Girl premiered earlier in July and features an all-new cast of characters, though Kristen Bell returns as the voice of Gossip Girl, even though new characters are writing words for her.

Although it has been referred to as a reboot, the series references characters from the original series, who may appear at a later date.

So far, the show has mostly received negative reviews and currently boasts a 38 percent rotten rating from critics surveyed by Rotten Tomatoes.

Meanwhile, her boyfriend Robert completely stayed out of the fray as he got in some exercise on Friday.

The 35-year-old Batman star was spotted in Los Angeles as he headed home after a rousing tennis match at a friend’s home.

He wore a black sweat-soaked T-shirt for the Cannes Film Festival, where several of his films have played in and out of competition, most recently his 2017 crime thriller Good Time.

He also wore gray athletic shorts with a pair of red-and-black New Balance trainers, as well as a black baseball cap and reflective shades.

In addition to a small black leather backpack, he carried some orange Gatorade to stay hydrated and a pair of gray-and-blue trainers.  

He was seen heading to his car and driving away after finishing up the game.

Although Suki was willing to reference their relationship to strike back at what she thought was an offensive joke, she and Robert normally keep their relationship out of the spotlight.

They were first linked in July 2018 when they were spotted kissing in London, and a source told Us Weekly in August of that year that they had been dating for months.

Since then, they’ve been spotted on-and-off in public together, though they share as little about their relationship as possible.

In an April 2019 interview with The Sunday Times, Pattinson explained his reticence to discuss his romance with Waterhouse.

‘If you let people in, it devalues what love is. If a stranger on the street asked you about your relationship, you’d think it extremely rude. If you put up a wall it ends up better,’ he explained. 

‘I can’t understand how someone can walk down the street holding hands, and it’s the same as when I do it and a hundred people are taking your photo. The line between when you’re performing and when you’re not will eventually get washed away and you’ll go completely mad.’

Keeping it special: 'If you let people in, it devalues what love is,' Robert said in a Sunday Times interview from April 2019 when he was asked about his girlfriend; seen with Jonathan Newhouse in January 2020
