Scenes with a nervous Velma have been making the rounds on Twitter. In one scene, Daphne (Grey Griffin) taunts her fellow mystery solver about her obvious attraction. “I didn’t know convicted felons were your type,” she jokes. A flustered Velma ignores her comments before declaring, “Oh, who am I kidding? I’m smashing big, Daphne!”
The producer of the series, Tony Cervone, also confirmed Velma’s sexual condition on his Instagram.
“Obviously I don’t represent all versions of Velma Dinkley, but I am one of the key people who represents this one,” she shared on Instagram. “We made our intentions as clear as we could ten years ago. Most of our fans understood. For those who didn’t, I suggest you take a closer look. No new news here.”
