Ruby Rose took to Instagram earlier this week, sharing that she'd suffered "serious" complications following an unspecified surgery, reports E! News. To make matters worse, due to the pandemic, she was unable to receive the urgent medical care she needed.

"By the time I thought, 'Okay, I absolutely have to go to the hospital now,' we called an ambulance, and it took hours to find a hospital that would be able to take me, or anyone," she said in a video shared to her Instagram Stories. "They'd been rejecting people all night. And my case was quite serious.

She added: "We stuck it out for a little bit longer, and we were lucky enough to get accepted by a hospital after a bit of a standoff."

The Orange Is the New Black star, who stepped down from CW's Batwoman for which she received backlash, and sustained injuries on set, urged her fans to get vaccinated as she got teary-eyed.

"It just doesn't need to be this hard for everyone," she said.
