im not just defending chris because i defend everything he does. i can admit when my faves do things that are wrong, and it’s not fair on the fans that he’s cancelled last minute but it’s also not fair to just hate on someone because of an assumption when you don’t know the truth. let’s be honest, we’ve all been worried about chris’ well being for a while, he’s lost his spark, he’s completely inactive on social media and he just seems like a shell of himself. he doesn’t have the support from the rest of the cast (bar mel and sparingly david) and i feel like he feels really alone.
he’s not just someone on tumblr getting a few hate asks, he is someone who is getting A LOT of hate from people who have no justification and he doesn’t have anyone defending him. this is a man who has been called a homophobe, an abuse apologist, sexist and racist. how would you react to being called that time and time again? never mind the fact that he’s constantly harassed about his talent and looks aswell.
all im asking is that you take into consideration what chris has been and might be going through before jumping on him for ‘cancelling because his gf did’. you don’t know what’s going on with him right now, maybe he’s been struggling and especially since sunday was worried about the con, and then when mel had to cancel he couldn’t face going on his own (and the fact the people are laughing about that and calling him a coward disgusts me)
i feel like the fans who paid to go and see chris and who were so excited to see him deserve an explanation, of course i do, but unfortunately because he’s been bullied off social media, i don’t think he’s going to tweet about it (because let’s face it, he’ll just get hate for whatever he says anyway)
so i guess my point is: be mad, be upset and be disappointed that you’re not going to meet chris or that we’re not going to get any new content, you have the right to feel how you want to feel, i was mad and disappointed too (im still disappointed now, but mostly upset) but please don’t just assume things and assume the reasons why chris cancelled when we really don’t know the truth. all i can do is hope that chris is ok and if he is feeling down or if this is affecting him, he’ll do the right thing for himself (which imo is leaving supergirl and finding something else)
also please if you’re disappointed and upset try not to direct it at chris on twitter just incase he’s lurking, i don’t want chris to feel like his fans hate him too.
