this whole situation with Derpy hooves is honestly making me a very sad brony...not just the fact that they changed her, but the way the whole fandom is reacting to it. all i've been hearing lately is hate hate hate. people hating hasbro for the decision, people blaming the hub, the shows producers, the writers, everyone. i've even seen fans turning against each other, even. ~amino
has been receiving enough hate mail and in all honesty, has probably been driven away from this fandom, simply because she disliked the name derpy, and agreed with changing it. it makes me sad to see all this hatred...have we already forgotten what this fandom was built on? love and tolerance ringing any bells? we're bronies. we're not sith, we're not red lanterns...hatred isn't our thing.
on the topic of derpy herself, i also have to say...why are we still fighting? in the grand scheme of things, it's one scene in one episode, on one provider. the original scene exists in so many places across the internet, i've actually found it harder to find the altered version! so the continued protests and fighting is doing nothing but making us fans look...well, obsessed and creepy, to be totally honest. we've made our voices heard, and they've been acknowledged by several members of the production team, including one of the animators ( [link]

all in all, it's 3:30 in the morning here, and i guess the point i'm trying to get across is...will everyone please try and calm down about this situation? stop the hate mail to hasbro. stop the harassment of people who dissagree...just calm down, and remember what we're suppose to stand for: love, tolerance and acceptance. lets try showing a little more of those things from here on forward
