*reads tags* waaaaiit what did bobby say that pissed off some dumb derks wot
Bobby did an interview like a week ago with a British publication (i cant even remember which) and he used the word ‘cunt’ in a sentence. The anti-rumple fans used it as an excuse to attack dearies and Bobby fans because they wanted a reason, said he was a misogynist and all sorts bc in the US it’s a gendered slur. In Scotland it’s like any other swear word, especially in Glasgow, and it was clear it wasn’t meant as a slur in context.
They wanted an excuse to go after him because they hate the dearie/Rumbelle fandom, and because Bobby called all other shippers ‘finicky’ in a jokey SDCC interview, and most of the cast agreed we’re the best fans :D. So yeah there was a thing so I, among others, defended him because he didn’t actually do any of the things people accused him of, and I got a round of anon hate for it.
basically the BAs in the Once fandom can be jerks sometimes and bobby is a precious sweary sunflower
