Holy shit, 2016 was a crappy year, and it hasn’t even ended yet. I’ve been talking politics all week and I want to make it very clear that first and foremost my heart goes out to all of the people whose rights will be directly affected by a Trump presidency; everyone stay strong and please don’t ever give up.
However this is also a fandom blog, and on the topic of Misha Collins and certain parts of the Supernatural fandom: I’m not sure how after this year, anyone would still be able to justify their irrational hate and anger towards Misha Collins as a person.
I completely understand and respect if you don’t like the character he plays. I completely understand if you’re not a fan of his acting. I completely understand if his kind of humor is not your kind of humor. I completely understand if you don’t think he’s attractive; it’s a matter of taste, after all. Essentially, I completely understand and respect, that not everyone in the Supernatural fandom is a fan of Misha or his character.
But Christ on a cracker, if by now you’re still spreading hate about him on a daily basis, trying to tear down his charities, or trying to belittle him in photo ops…
This guy cares so much about everything and everyone, I’m not sure how anyone in this fandom can still even question whether or not his heart is in the right place. I’m not saying he’s perfect, no one is, but between campaigning to try and protect the rights of the minorities in his country, and collecting food and supplies for the homeless, and constantly reaching out to the people in the fandom who are struggling either mentally or physically… Let’s please leave this ugliness behind, let’s please stop shitting all over a person who genuinely only means to spread kindness and love.
We need good things to balance out all of the bad, now more than ever. So as a fandom that’s supposed to be a family; can we please start here?
