Ok, looking at my blog here I think it’s clear that I don’t really stan actors/actresses, only characters. But being part of the Clexa fandom and following others here and looking on twitter it’s bound for you to know everything about Eliza and Alycia. There is something that has been annoying me for a few weeks and I’m going to address it because it feels like PART of our fandom needs a wake up call.
Alycia has stated before that she doesn’t like SM and it actually scares her. This is what happened to her after she started on the loo:
she had less than 20K followers on twitter before the show and now she has over
310K (and that’s good for her and her career – so far so good)
since that Clexa kiss on S2 the Blarke fandom started to attack her because
Lexa got in the way of their ship and they don’t know how to differ actor from
character. It went on and on and got worse every time something Clexa related
was buzzing on the internet: when Alycia was announced back to season 3; when
they where shooting the finale in January this year (I’ve seen with my own eyes
tweets wishing her cancer and her to get raped that week, but her stans on
twitter reported massively); when any Clexa scene or sneak peak dropped; when
Clexa sex scene “leaked” and even hating her because she was a guest star that
was getting to much screen time from regulars. The hate from them only stopped
when Lexa died and suddenly they all think Alycia is a sweetheart again (they
even pretend now that they never sent her any hate at all since most accounts were
suspended back then and the others that are still on deleted their tweets when
called out by others).
she started getting hate by other fandoms because of stupid polls where Lexa/Clexa
would win (remember the GOT fans that attacked her on instagram because Emilia
lost a poll to her? It went on for days and days).
Lexa/Clexa was still a hot topic of many news after her death and her importance
started to annoy people that never talked to us in the first place. Those
people started attacking her because Lexa was brownfaced and “she agreed with
it all and wore a fucking bindi and she should have said no”. They blamed
everything controversial of Lexa on her and not Jason/writers/producers.
the same time everybody started attacking her because she is a “mayo”, and
because of that she is not talented enough and it’s actually “overrated”.
came the Clexas that started to attack her because she didn’t “speak up” about
LGBT issues or Clexa and Lexa like Eliza (or other actors do/did). Some of you
all even went as far as calling her problematic for it and even homophobic
because she was not as active on social media as before and part of you assumed
that the Clexa relationship and LGBT fans attention was what made her
uncomfortable and the reason why she left the loo.
some “fans” of hers hacked her boyfriend (ex or whatever) account and spread
pictures all over the internet of his dick, him cheating her with others
girls and videos of him mistreating her.
single tweet/post she makes comes with some fans going “that outfit is ugly!”;
“did she get a nose job?”; “too much make up”; “OMG she is still wearing THE
every single day create fake accounts to harass her by tagging her and her
friends (Marny and Maia) in tweets saying she is dumb, stupid and many other
things because she is still with her cheating boyfriend (something we are not
even sure of) and send her photos of the others girls sucking his dick – and in
here I have to congratulate about 5 ADC twitter accounts that ALWAYS go after
them asking others to report until they are suspended.
came the fase “she doesn’t love us enough because she doesn’t post anything in
a while”, “why are you not active on SM Alycia? Notice me!”
now the latest trend: let’s change fandoms and shit on her because she doesn’t speak up and give us
attention like Chyler and Floriana do. Thank god she didn’t! Can you image if
she was as active as them about Clexa when she knew that Lexa was dead? She
would have been crucified by the fandom. I’ve seen dozens and dozens of tweets
and posts in the last month comparing Chyler’s and Florina’s behavior
online to hers (especially Chyler’s). Really?! You are comparing her to actresses
that are actually active because they want to and have a very health SM life compared
to hers??! Actresses that are over 33 years old and have more experience and a
resume bigger than Alycia who is only 23 and pretty new in the industry? Chyler
and Floriana didn’t have to deal with the shit that comes when your f/f ship
get in the way of what was “supposed to be the main m/f ship of the show”, they
don’t have people hacking them and posting personal photos/videos online. And the most
important: they were pretty active on SM before Sanvers (specially Chyler who ALWAYS tweeted fans).
Some of you actually goes as far as tagging her in it and calling her names while making the comparison (here it is an example):
By the things she said on that con we already now she lurks online and sees all the things you guys post. She knew all the inside jokes of the fandom. You think she doesn’t see all of this? The girl admitted she only got twitter to follow Nasa for fucks sake. A fan that is a real fan respects that and enjoys the little things they get…NO ACTOR has a duty to keep you entertainment outside of their contract obligations. NONE. The only thing they owe you is respect and professionalism and, as far as I’ve seen, those are the 2 words that most describe Alycia’s behavior (online and off). Unfortunately it’s normal for any public person to receive hate from people that don’t like them…but it’s not normal to receive from your own fans!
The only thing you are going to achieve here is getting Alycia to regret ever taking part on any of it (Lexa/Clexa) and push her away from SM more and more until she actually caves and deactivates. Congratulations, you are helping make her SM experience a real nightmare by acting as haters instead of fans!! If you are her fan, respect her! If you decided to unstan her and move on to another actress (and that’s normal and happens a lot, there is no problem in that) move on and stop sending hate to a person that you were kissing ass not even a month ago. It’s things like this that helps to give a fandom a bad reputation and you guys are not helping at all and giving a bad name to a big majority that can behave like real human beings. Again this is a call out to PART of the fandom, not everyone!
