Okay, this was posted today by a sergeantbuckybearbarnes in response to a Grant Ward appreciation post. It's just the latest in the long line of slowly but steadily escalating posts against the character and fans of the character. I see anyone I’m following joining in on “Grant Ward appreciation week” and you’ll be unfollowed and publicly shamed for being a bad fucking person. Appreciate a good villain all you like, but the moment you try and paint them as a good person, you’re an unforgivable cunt and I don’t wanna look at you.
+ you're a fucking cunt OP + 'wow this asshole is sooooo dreamy' + go lie down and rethink your life choices +
(There was more, that's just one.)
We've finally reached the harrassment and bullying stage. All in the name of righteousness and social justice, of course.
So I'm gonna make this quick: I suspect I have people on my LJ/DW circles who agree with that person. If you do, I want you to unfriend me ASAP, no ifs, no buts. I'm turning off comments: this signals my absolute unwillingness to discuss this even a little bit, either here or via email. You think that poster is right, leave right now. I'm beyond furious at this point, and not putting up with this shit.
eta: look, if you don't do it now, I will do it soon as I catch you reblog shit like that, or see you contribute to this climate of hostility towards me and my fellow Ward fans. Might as well get it over with now.
