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!

#blacklivesmatter – until you come for their problematic fave

#blacklivesmatter

Note: This is a LONG-ish post.


I debated whether I’d write about this incident, but in a weird way, it’s absolutely perfect for this blog. Sometimes I feel weird writing about important topics on a blog I created to complain about a TV show and its fandom but does it really matter? Nah.

This is a story about race, fandom, black friends and cult leaders.

For references purposes, I’m a black woman living in the UK. Unfortunately, talk about racism over here is even worse than it is in the US.

Anyway, that’s a post for another time.

Everything I’m about to write is true.

First of all, while not all fandoms are racist, lot of them are a hotbed for questionable activity. They will also condone racism for the sake of worshipping their faves or writing white saviour fanfiction.

I don’t even care about that.

I was simply minding my own business, reading posts on social media when I came across Brendon Urie’s statement on everything happening via someone’s IG story.

Misha Collins is the most amazing and kind person

Psych.

These kind of comments are always my favourite. The humble Supernatural fan stumbles across my blog and they unleash the fury.

That the post is from three years ago amuses me to no end. 

Here’s the full comment (link)

WTF HOW DARE YOU
I KNOW THIS IS OLD, BUT I NEED TO SAY THAT
Misha Collins is the most amazing & kind person.
So he do sometime stupid & unfunny jocks. This is doesn’t mean he deserves a death sentence for it. He is just HUMAN like all of us. He is kind, sweet happy person. SO HE DID BAD JOCK. HOW DARE YOU TO WITH DEATH FOR HIM, HE DOSN’T DESERVE THAT. IF U DON’T LIKE HIM, THAT FINE, IT’S YOUR CHOICE. BUT DON’T SAY SUCH THING, AS YOU WOULDN’T WANT BAD THINGS LIKE THAT WRITTEN ABOUT YOU BECAUSE A BAD JOKE. It’s disgusting to talk like that about a person. This is not the way to disagree with a person, to humiliate him, especially if that person is a kind and good, person who is trying his best to make the world a better place, and GISH is a greate example for that. So if you do not like it, it’s okay, but stop, just stop, he dosn’t deserve that.

In true Supernatural Snark fashion, here is the breakdown.

Wentworth Miller is tired

Ah, Wentworth Miller. 

I went to an all girls’ school and everyone was in love with him. Eventually, Prison Break ended and he fell off. I did hear that he’s on a bunch of CW shows now and that means one thing. 

He’s encountered the madness that is fandom. 

I have to post this because it has everything. I don’t know whether to laugh, cry or scratch my head in bemusement.  Continue reading “Wentworth Miller is tired”

stupid and senseless: part infinity – Jared Padalecki is a human being that ‘breathes oxygen’

STUPID & SENSELESS: PART INFINITY!!!!!

Last updated: 18th Aug ’16

(ETA: he’s done it again)

FINALLY, an edition about the man that started it all! We knew it was coming and here it is. I would first like to announce that, not only is Jared a human being that breathes oxygen, he’s also a superhero:

wp-1471288987598.jpeg

LOL. Someone posted this on the ONTD post and I laughed myself SILLY. No wonder this dude has a complex.

Anyway!

In today’s edition, a server in Minnesota was extremely mean to Jared and apparently ruined his entire night, month, life, bad hair day, Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving as well as his entire adult life. So in response, he publicly blasted her on Facebook, posted her picture and was unapologetic about it. In fact, an unedited version of the post is still up (or it was last time I checked)

ETA: He apparently removed the post and had this to say (after the fact of course):

In regards to my recent post, please please PLEASE do not send ill-will in anybody’s direction. I felt it necessary to voice my opinion, as I have made a promise to myself that I will not let somebody mistreat me just to swallow it, as if I “deserve” it. It’s a promise I hope y’all can make to yourselves as well. But it’s in the past now. And I sincerely hope everybody involved will be better for it. Please, for the love of Chuck, don’t send any hatred or ill-will in their direction. That is the exact OPPOSITE of what I want.

He’s still a tool and it was EXACTLY what he wanted.

ETA 2: Oh, wow. Apparently lawyers are involved now. He’s really messed up badly this time. SMH. More & the original post under the cut.

ETA 3: The person that Jared initially responded to has graciously allowed me to add their (now deleted) comment to this post. It can be found below.

I’m pleased to announce that SPN fans are still pleasant individuals…

Or not, because what I’m announcing is the opposite.

tapatalk_1446251044913.gif

So, I was checking my emails from YouTube the other day – I do so every now and then because I have it filtered on account due to too many annoying notifications. I have a couple of clips from Supernatural uploaded, typically clips from or before season 3 and they tend to get more comments than any of my amazing videos that I took the time to put together for no real reason at all. My most popular video is one set to a Nickelback song with awful audio because I used Audacity to cut the song and screwed up somehow. It’s kind of fitting.

To get to the story, what happened was that I saw that someone had left a comment on one of these videos – something along the lines of, ‘[Name], shut the fuck up’ and I went onto the video page and was confused. I don’t really read the comments because…they’re all the same shit and it’s been, what…eight years? So I replied with a simple ‘??’ – perhaps I could actually asked a question but, ain’t nobody got time for that. They hit me back and told me to shut the fuck up too! I thought it was hilarious. I pointed out that I was genuinely wondering why they had just randomly told someone to shut the fuck up (without responding to them – hence why I even bothered replying) and their response was ‘Oh, I thought you had the same opinion. My bad’? Continue reading “I’m pleased to announce that SPN fans are still pleasant individuals…”

This is what happens when fictional characters make you lose your shit

So, I was minding my own business while watching Numbers and I decided to find out if anyone else found Amita (the girlfriend, main character, genius mathematician, all-round Mary Sue) annoying.

Lo and behold, the first hit was a LJ community called ‘Amita Sucks*’ and it honestly cracked me the fuck up.
