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.
#people literally take advantage of hoechlin because he is so nice#and some of them think that because he is nice that he agrees with the shit that he says#if you really fucking knew then you wouldn’t be so happy#and when i say people i definitely mean some sterek shippers#a lot of you feel like you are so god damn entitled like the world owes you so fucking much#like the show and the writers and jeff OWE YOU#are you fucking kidding me?#you disregarded hoechlin’s job and everything because your pairing isn’t becoming canon#that is extremely disrespectful and distasteful#and if you are going to leave the fandom and stop watching the show because of your pairing not being canon#leave quietly and dont make such a noisy exit because no one gives a shit#move on#go cry a fucking river#and think about the shit you said because you are extremely rude and terrible
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.
