If you agree with this post don’t ever call yourself a Tyler Hoechlin fan and just leave the TW fandom all together because you’re literally a piece of shit. You talked shit about his JOB, his boss, you treated him like he’s your damn child and scolded JR for joking about Hoechlin as if he wasn’t his close friend (which is embarrassing and awkward as HELL), talked about not supporting his work anymore, and you did all of this to his FACE. You are so lucky Hoechlin is nice because the reaction you would have gotten wouldn’t have been pretty.

As a friend pointed out elsewhere: actors at a con are like the waitstaff at a restaurant or the staff at a retail store - being accommodating of creepy and/or inappropriate customers in a civil manner that won’t embarrass their employer is part of the job.  

People pay for Meet & Greet and photo opportunities at conventions, so yes, as part of their job while being at a conventions, actors have to be friendly, civil, gracious and polite.  As my friend also correctly pointed out - you’re a jerk if you take advantage of someone in that situation to say and do whatever the fuck you feel like saying or doing because you know the situation means it would awkward or uncomfortable or perceived as unprofessional for the waiter, sales associate or actor doing their job to call you out for it. You’re doubly a jerk if you then try to pretend the exchange was an honest emotional connection between you and the person of whom you’re talking advantage.

Tyler Hoechlin, by all accounts, has been raised right.  He’s also a professional actor.  To take his ability to successfully convey graciousness in the face of someone being indefensibly rude to him as his assent to that rudeness and agreement with the substance of what someone being that rude to him was actually saying is a level of willful and almost toxically self-interested blindness I can’t even begin to fathom. I’m with hoechlins: if you co-sign that post, you should be ashamed of yourself and your attitude.

my god, i’ve heard of people flouncing out of fandoms but this really takes the biscuit. why would you think it’s ok to go and dump all your over-dramatic shippy entitlement onto one of the actors, like seriously WHO DOES THAT?

ugh i can only imagine how awkward that conversation must have been for hoechlin and how relieved he must have been when the words “i have to go now” came out of that person’s mouth.

and it’s really just mega creepy that this person somehow thinks s/he’s in a position to chide one of hoechlin’s close personal friends for making a joke. you don’t know hoechlin, you might feel weirdly protective of him the way some of us do about celebrities we love but for fuck’s sake, you do. not. know. him. youtube user chewingsand said it best: treat someone you don’t know like someone you don’t know.

clawstoagunfight:

Okay, this is the first post I saw about it and it immediately rubbed me the wrong way, so I went to the blog and then I really got mad.

It’s a fan re-imagining of canon, or “alternate canon” as they are calling it. I’m sure a lot of people are like “oh that’s nice yeah that sounds lovely what’s wrong with that?” but then you read further:

"Our main goal for this alternate series of scripts is to create a more diverse and progressive universe, and strive to bring even more positive representation to the world of Teen Wolf in regards to race, gender, sexuality, and more.

We would also love to write a show that isn’t afraid to place “character” above “plot” - focusing more on character development, and personal stories, instead of the big, thrilling plot elements. (Which is not to say there won’t be plenty of action to go around)”

Again, people may say, “what’s so wrong with that? it sounds like a good time”

BUT NO. Not at all. I can understand people wanting more of these great things on teen wolf, but to create an entire new, unsanctioned by MTV “show” using their characters for fans’ own purposes and justifying it with “oh it’s just a collaborative creative project” is just so ludicrous to me. No. It just really rubs me the wrong way.

I’ve read everything on that blog and it just feels like a bunch of fans who are no longer watching the show got together and complained about the show and are now WRITING THEIR OWN TEEN WOLF. Like, are you serious??

THAT IS SO DISRESPECTFUL. I CAN’T EVEN PUT IT INTO WORDS.

They go on and on about characters outweighing plot and the need for continuity, and I can get that, okay, I write fan fic. Sometimes, I, too, like the idea of filling in and exploring the lacunae. That’s why we have headcanon and write fic. But it’s wrong for them to think that they can create this entire new show based on Teen Wolf while simultaniously disregarding EVERYTHING THAT MAKES TEEN WOLF TEEN WOLF (ie, the CANON) just so they can copy the characters and make the show they want to watch.

But it’s just like major shade and a slap in the face that they are doing this and I can’t support this fan endeavor. 

This is not clear or concise at all and I’m sorry. Check it out if you want to. Idk. Maybe when I calm down i’ll be able to say just what it is about this that rubs me the wrong way.

Idk, there are fanworks and then there is crossing the line, and for me, this virtual teen wolf thing is so far over that line.

i don’t see what the problem is tbh?

it’s literally just fanfiction. one big collaborative au scriptfic. teen wolf isn’t the first fandom to have done it either, i’ve seen them in plenty of fandoms before.

honestly i don’t see why this would be any more “disrespectful” than any other au fic or fixit fic. it’s not like they’re trying to get this made into an actual tv show.

is it just the fact that they’re calling it a “show” that’s objectionable to you? because that’s literally the only thing that separates it from any other au fic out there.

i genuinely don’t understand where this arbitrary “line” is that this project crosses but other au fic does not.

dean-adorkable:

"We are calling the writers out on important issues"
Stfu. Destiel not being canon is NOT a serius matter and nor is Dean being straigh.
Lack of queer representation in the media is a problem, and as a bi girl it is degrading that you use such an important topic to push a fanon ship. I would believe you more if you asked questions such as “Could bi Sam be an posibility?” or “will there be another queer recurring character soon?” but no. All of your so called anti-homophobe and queerbaiting questions are dean, cas or destiel centric.

Me and one of my best friends Katie Gray want to write a letter to the BBC asking for Jagoras to be a thing because there is no reason as to why it shouldn’t so who’s in?

ummm…no? please?

if you’re going to write to the bbc please at least do it because you want well written explicitly queer characters in general, not just because you want jagoras. don’t turn us into one of those fandoms.

If you claim Tyler Posey is homophobic simply because he thinks your creepy pedophilic ship is gross, please see your way to the kitchen and drink all the cleaning products under the sink.

ugh. look, i’m all for this protecting posey at all costs thing, but ‘at all costs’ doesn’t actually include death/suicide wishes. mostly because it’s an inherently disgusting thing and it makes you an asshole, and secondarily because it means you’re stooping to the same lows as those sterek fans wishing death and rape on posey.

stop.

It took me almost fifteen minutes to reblog this.  Death threats.  DEATH THREATS.  
I was working on a long post for something and now, my mind is just frozen because what the FUCK is the point?  What the fuck is the point when people are sending Tyler Posey death threats because he doesn’t ship their ship?
This fandom is BROKEN.  If it’s going to change, and it sure as hell BETTER change, we’re going to have to knock down all the towers and raze the ground.  

this is disgusting. this fandom is disgusting.

honestly, people harp on about posey being unprofessional and whatnot but none of them are saying the same thing about the teenwolf tumblr when we all know the ‘professional’ thing to do would have been to just stay completely neutral

eta: also none of them give a shit about jeff davis’ unprofessional queerbaiting and that’s just the tip of the iceberg with him

godsavebullyinghypocrites:

Anti-Sterek fans are attacking the person running the official Teen Wolf tumblr, and planning on getting them fired just because the official Teen Wolf tumblr reblogged a Sterek post? After the anti-Sterek’s have been telling every Sterek fan they come across that people are allowed to have opinions, and we should respect those opinions even if we feel hurt by them?

Anti-Stereks, please. Y’all are showing your true colors. There are bullying, ignorant people in this fandom that stomp their feet and send hate or threats whenever someone does something that goes against their opinion. And ya’ll just revealed that your faction is made up almost entirely of these sort of people. The official Teen Wolf tumblr didn’t even SAY anything against Posey, for goodness sake.

nobody’s trying to get the person fired. we don’t have that power.

what we are doing is sending messages (not hate) to make sure that they know that there are plenty of people who agree with what posey said and that reblogging that post, particularly from that person, was a really good way to alienate a lot of fans and make a messy situation even messier.
