The Blacklist‘s Megan Boone has been lobbying for equal representation in the show’s promos with co-star James Spader, which led to the actress taking some backlash from fans online.

On Monday, Boone parroted back some of tweets from The Blacklist‘s official Twitter feed by putting a Liz Keen-centric angle on them.

She’s back and more determined than ever. #womeninfilm https://t.co/r3HLc2vmmA

Don’t slip on representing the female characters in media proportionately to their contributions. We will talk about it. #womeninfilm https://t.co/SwBX37SUD4

But after a fan accused the actress of “shading” Spader, Boone clarified her intent.

I am not “shading” the brilliant STAR of my show. I am only certain it’s time to give the “female” lead exposure in step. #womeninfilm https://t.co/3QGYhsWBsi

Giving women = rights in the workplace doesn’t diminish mens’ contribution. W/o my tireless work (3x of any performer) TBL couldn’t get made https://t.co/25ht6w9Wo6

The Blacklist will return Wednesday, Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
