holy shit even CARMEN gets more hate than sarah and maybe even sabrina lol this fandoms hatred for rowan and how she doesn't cater to anyone's discomfort with her dedication to being herself is fucked
The thing is if Rowan DID try to be all bubbly, cutesy and unopinionated then she wouldn’t be being herself. She would be portraying a persona that Disney had manufacted for her. Literally every past Disney Star has said that Disney did this to them and controlled their every move. This is what people are used to, and they don’t like change.
Someone even had the audacity to say that Rowan treated her fans horribly because she called out a “fan” who was bullying Carmen LIKE ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? This “fan” literally said
“Carmen is looking really tan lately; surprising because she’s always standing in her sister’s shadow.”
Then a so-called “Tanner Buchanan” account began defending the “fan” and that’s when the whole “Fake Tanner Drama” started.
Anyway, all Rowan said to the bully was that she wouldn’t tolerate hate toward her sister. Then the bully began lamenting “Woe is me!” and Rowan haters lapped it up.
Rowan was then labeled the “bully”.
What I hate most is when people compare Rowan and Sabrina and turn Rowan into an “Angry, problematic bully”. It also brings up a frightening reminiscent of age old stereotypes with Sabrina being the “Perfect and Pure Aryan Princess” and Rowan being “Dark, Jealous and Dirty”.
