What even happened here?

So, a few days ago – I got an alert that was like ‘YOUR STATS ARE BOOMING! etc’ and it was my post about Jared Padalecki’s post on Black Lives Matter. I don’t remember what I wrote it now, but I don’t recall saying anything controversial (for me anyway).

I could see it was mostly being clicked on from Twitter (which always makes me wary – I once saw someone tweet my blog URL at Misha one time and ask: “What do you think of this?” which noooo, this blog was always for disgruntled fans like myself and not to be tweeted at the actors).

Anyway, I looked up the post on there and see that it was linked to some drama from a few days ago.

This was my understanding of what happened, but if I’m wrong by all means correct me.

Jared tweeted this:

And I guess an overzealous Misha stan (fan?) or Jensen stan (fan?) took offense to that:

… and Jared took offense to that…

LMAO.

God forgive me, but I absolutely HOLLERED!

I really needed the laugh, too, so looking into it came at the right time. Whew!

I hope Jared was being facetious and it didn’t actually hurt him. The original tweeter was being stupid (and I say this as someone who’s tweeted some not so nice things myself in the past*), but the response isn’t much better**. If I was him, I’d have just been like, “Well, alright then. Wish granted. You’ll never see me post Dean again [dean.gif]” – via DM*** – and blocked them. Or better yet, just post Dean with no explanation.

I don’t understand the people on Twitter with millions of fans who actually read the mentions. I can barely read my texts from two weeks ago let alone the stream of crap that must come through. Like, no bueno. Ick.

Anyway, I’d like to thank Jared and mylovecas for the entertainment!


*I used to be a I’LL SAY WHAT I WANT TO SAY person, but I’ve mellowed. If you think someone is a prick, the best thing to do is ignore them and go on with your life. Words hurt, no matter how strong we think we are, and you never know what someone is going through.

**Jared’s passive aggressive response here is cute, but by doing it the way he did, it does come across like he was… sending the masses after her. It has a sinister undertone to it, and I’m betting the phenomenal folk who support Jared let their voices be heard. To me, it makes him just as bad as the original tweeter. What they said didn’t really warrant a response, and if it did, he needed to go high and not low.

***The best option is always to respond privately wherever and whenever possible. Or not to respond at all!

Back to my involvement in this and it seems like someone shared it for some reason or other.

I don’t really mind, but I’d like to stress my involvement in the SPN fandom is zero these days. My opinion is solely limited to what is within the posts on this blog (and I’ll admit I do cringe at some of the stuff I’ve posted on here. My tag list alone is absolutely terrible 🙈).

…but hey, I’m much nicer these days. 😁

Someone called me a Karen the other day and I was so taken aback! I’m like a internet beef retiree at this point. I was unprepared for the hostility. How I previously found the time to have so much internet drama in the past is beyond me. There are too many angry and messed up people online.

The snark will always be strong, though!

  1. I’m so sorry, i guess i shared some of your posts about Jared to one or two people on Twitter lately, but it was only to inform them about his past actions. It really is a great archive for the things his fans are trying to bury.
    I’m not involved in the spn fandom anymore either but i was seeing his response, made a short riot and someone simply asked what was that all about.
    I’m truly sorry if that brought you any distress.
    Also i think your blog is hilarious and your old posts are still very much therapeutic for the ex spn fans who can finally feel validated in their opinions they’ve kept silenced for years.
    On the side note i absolutely agree his tweet still sounds like it was a passive agressive encouragement for his stans to attack this person. You would think that after all of those years he would’ve learn.

    1. Hey! No need to apologize, the tweets I saw were fine. I could see you were just trying to link to his past behaviour and that’s fine by me. No distress here, I was just curious! Most of the time, I don’t even investigate and I’m like, ‘Oh, I guess Jared’s done something again!’ lol. It’s all good here. 😁

      Aww, thank you! Lol, I ended up reading a bunch of the old posts after I wrote this…What a wild ride it was! I’m glad people find them therapeutic, I know I definitely did back when I still skirting the edge of the fandom. I was such a Jared ‘girl’ in the past so it’s always ironic to me that I ended up writing about his shady ways.

      The tweet was classic Jared. It took reading it a few times after I found the tweet he was responding to for me to be like, ‘wait a minute… is he really trying to send his fans after her?’ and given the people I saw complaining about ilovemycas blocking them and the protected tweets, his fans obeyed their lord and master and went on the attack. He will never learn. What was even hurtful about what she wrote (unless there was more)? Is his ego really that fragile? He needs to chill.

      Thanks for the comment – and again, I wasn’t upset with you linking the post! I just wanted to add a lil disclaimer somewhere just in case someone comes along and tries to say anything.
