Okay I am really sick and tired of people complaining about how mean Lance is to Keith, and I’m here to remind you that Keith is just as willing of a participant in their banters! Not to mention, Keith says mean things to Lance without being provoked either! For example
- “We could toss out some nonessential weight” said to Lance specifically in the first episode
- “YOU ARE THE WORST PILOT EVER”
- purposely misleading Lance in the invisible maze.
- “I’M NOT SCARED!!!” as he does the same thing as Lance, and also goes faster because he wants in to the competition too
- “What’s that? I-I can’t hear you, you’re cutting off!” aka Keith being a little shit for fun
- “The amount of information in your brain could be stored in a paper airplane” Keith insults Lance without provocation. Hell, Lance didn’t even talk to Keith thus far in that scenario, it was Keith that initiated the banter
- The entirety of the elevator/pool scene. Keith was rude to Lance when Lance didn’t do anything
Also have you guys seen teenage boys bantering? That’s what they do. There’s really no real venom to their words. Not to mention Keith and Lance have many instances of getting along well. Plus Keith is pretty rude to everyone at one point. He says a lot of mean things to Pidge as well.
Plus, Lance also engages in similar banter with Hunk and Pidge. Pidge makes waaay more cruel remarks to Lance and everyone else yet I don’t see y’all hating on her. Only being happy at how “sassy” she is. Stop right there. Enough with the colourism. If you’re gonna blame Lance for being mean to Keith, you also better blame Keith and Pidge for being mean to Lance as well.
