A destiel/cockles/Castiel/Misha hater recently brought up some “Jared Hate”
as proof that Jared has “so much more hate than Misha”. or that Cockles shippers hate Jared just as much as Misha haters hate on Misha.
LOL, Literally Laugh Out Loud.
Almost every single supposed Destiel/Cockles twitter/tumblr account that has gone to the point of violent threats against Jared, or that has spewed nasty things about the man, has been disproven as a destieler account. These accounts are FAKE.
Most of the hate/stalking that has occurred has not been from shippers, but usually crazed fans with singular focus on the actor themselves.
(We will discuss Misha hate at another time, because the dynamic changes for that particular group of haters. And YES there is actually a group!)
One look at these blogs or twitter accounts reveals the lie. Also, when the entire Destiel community refuses to have anything to do with the trolls in question, that should also be the biggest hint.
Let’s take a look at the two most-used examples of supposed Jared hate by Destiel shippers:
#1 is a blog that only ran for about 2 days in November of 2012. You can look at the blog, it’s full of ridiculous trash that no Destiel or Cockles shipper actually believes.
#2 is in the same vein, and was started in May of 2012, only ran a couple of days, and the wording leads me to believe it was run by the exact same person, trying to trump up the supposed “Jared hate” on the site.
These are what we call “sockpuppet” blogs, designed to stir up the fans. They are created by Jared fans, and intentionally post untrue and hateful things. Why? So they they can have a post to point at and say. “Look at all the Jared hate!”
The fact that hater blogs continuously reference these DEFUNCT and OBVIOUSLY FAKE blogs in support of their arguments proves this point.
Another problem that’s been brought to our attention recently is the old Twitter user: Kristy Hobbs
Now, this person posted hate against Jared, his wife, and baby. Her account was deleted, she created another, and that one got closed as well.
This one however, survives:
She also did a brief stint on Tumblr, but that account is also gone.
Why do I believe this was not an actual Destiel shipper? Because nobody liked her behavior. Everyone was against her. Also, there’s a lovely blog that can be found here:
that explains things from the point of a Destiel shipper. Unfortunately, imageshack images don’t last forever.
So the next time you see someone claiming a Destieler/Cockles shipper said something crazy, ask yourself:
Does this sound like something the people I follow would do?
Do they have proof?
Is the proof sound?
