I honestly enjoy seeing you always try to spin what I’m saying back around on me. It’s quite enjoyable really and happens without fail, even if you have to twist yourself into nonsensical contortions to do so.
Respect and empathy is something I value more than most honestly, but sometimes you just have to call it like you see it. A lot of the fans are entitled and honestly acting like children. I fully understand why they are, and I respect that they have a right to do so, but that doesn’t mean I can’t criticize them. Pathetic is the exact right word for it. Especially when most of these same people harass creators and others. At that point no respect is deserved and none will be given.
Also, if you’re implying I blew my fuse during the PT, you couldn’t be further off base.
I’m not spinning anything. You are not just criticizing toxic elements in the fandom, you are conflating criticisms and negative reactions to a property with harrassment. You are generalizing when you state, that most of these same people harass creators and others. That is what is nonsensical, and disrespectful.
Perhaps I should have said many not most. But I’m not talking about all people who criticize and never was. I’m talking about people that go out of their way on the internet to endlessly complain. You’ll find many of these same people responding to Rian Johnson et al saying that they ruined Star Wars.
I would consider the latter harrassment. However, I think rather than accepting that the fandom is divided, and that there are a lot of people unhappy with the direction of the franchise, a lot of fans of Disney Star Wars like to focus solely on toxic fans, manbabies, and harrassment. The Resistance trailer gets a negative response, and so it must be toxic fans downvoting it. It’s just unfathomable that Disney Star Wars can elicit a genuinely mixed response.
