I guess that sole
comment where someone suggested Stiles should go for Derek was easy to miss… [x
Yeah, no, that’s most definately not what the majority of us said. But I get it DEREK is a name that could so easily mistaken for LYDIA or MALIA, ami’righ?
I’ve been ignoring that Facebook post, because the screencaps turning up on my feed made it clear it was eye-roll worthy. Given the responses being posted by fans, I figured the PR team would just let it quietly disappear.
Obviously I gave them too much credit. This “summary” of the response is so poorly done. Shame on you Teen Wolf PR team. If you had to make a post and didn’t want to mention Derek, it could still have been spun in ways which weren’t gross, including focusing on how worried the fans were for Stiles’ wellbeing — that could actually have made really great copy. Much more fresh and interesting than the tripe peddled in this article.
But no, instead the writer went for a complete disregard of the two clearly expressed popular opinions, and a gross misrepresentation based on the few other comments for the sake of a het love triangle that barely exists in the show.
Homophobic. Lacking compassion for mental health issues. Unethical misrepresentation of the facts.
Congratulations. You’ve achieved a trifecta of incompetence, Teen Wolf PR.
THIS IS SOME STRAIGHT UP BULLSHIT and I am surprised everyone is being so calm about it.
I love how in order to ignore all the Sterek comments, they felt it necessary to use a pro-Malia/Stiles comment from someone who can’t even spell Stiles’ name correctly.
Send tweets! Make your voice be heard, be polite but strong and don’t let this people erase a big BIG part of their Fan base
Friendly reminder that this homophobic mess isn’t the work of the Teen Wolf PR team. MTV show’s blog is run by just that, bloggers, who are all apparently dumbass homophobic pieces of shit.
Don’t get angry at MTVteenwolf. Get angry at @MTVShowBlog and @MScottDonnelly on TWITTER for writing that shit.
Let your voices be heard, guys. Tell them exactly how you feel :)
Like I honestly don’t understand how they can straight up IGNORE that you had to sift through HUNDREDS/THOUSANDS of comments where people said DEREK or NEITHER to get to these comments.
I’m so fucking pissed right now, I’m livid. UGH
Why are they trying so hard ALL OF A SUDDEN (this year/this season) to absolutely ignore and PUT DOWN one of the biggest parts of their fanbase? It makes absolutely no sense to me. Nice job alienating your biggest supporters, TW media/crew/etc.
I’m leaving for work and won’t have the time to angrily tweet the two mentioned in the comment above, so if anyone else would like to do it that’d be GREAT.
PLEASE get our REAL voices heard. Please.
I don’t want to give up on this show but I’m getting closer and closer to doing just that.
You know, this shit has become so repetitive, every week since the current season started. It almost seems as all this Sterek hate(or pro-Stiles/anything with a vagina) is part of the design of this season and the fannish landscape upon which it has been inflicted. I mean, we have Stiles possessed by a hateful, chaos loving demon, which is the complete total, opposite of his character. Then, Derek continues to be Jeff’s Whipping Boy(the convo with Scott in the hospital would have to be most lines Tyler has had the whole season WTF). MTV masquerades as this entity that embraces equality for all. But yet their underlings, like this fine piece of work, won’t even consider that Stiles might be bi-sexual and pairs him with a stranger(if chemistry is the pre-requisite, he had tons more with Caitlin, but she’s a nasty bi person who will pass her gay cooties to Stiles ‘roll eyes’). Add all of these details together, and you get a get a lot of hate and trolling aimed at one group, Sterek shippers. And, regrettably, I think that this will only get worse as we near the finale.
