lol and who is "ya'll"?? I just don't get how holding on to this resentment is healthy. if an actor says something I don't agree with about a fictional tv show I don't care about anymore, I keep scrolling - unless what they said was genuinely offensive (which as much as that post reached, he didn't say anything offensive about any minority group lmfao). this isn't even hate, I've followed you for ages and it's just getting weird that all of yall are still clinging on to this show.
1. you don’t have to say something offensive about “a minority group” in order to be problematic. bob’s interpretation of bellamy isn’t just flawed, it’s the picture of male entitlement. his whole sentiment was “well yeah, bellamy killed a bunch of people including octavia’s boyfriend but he’s sorry so like, what’s the big deal?” like feeling guilty about something automatically absolves you of fault. that’s not how the world works and it’s gross that he thinks that way.
2. as for your other point, based on your usage of the term “minority group” i’m gonna assume you’re probably white and most likely cishet, or so out of the loop that you just really have no idea what the show did to us to make us want to see it fail.
if you’ve been following me as long as you say you have, then i’m sure you know two things. 1) i don’t post very much t100 stuff anymore in general unless it’s reblogging clexa gifsets or the occasional commentary about the actors i like from the show, and 2) that march 3rd, and pretty much for a good one to two weeks following that date, i was spending much of my time on this website talking my followers out of suicide.
i’m 25. i have a lot of young, impressionable people following me and i honestly do feel a bit protective of them cause i’m on the older end of tumblr. many of those people were in my inbox telling me they didn’t see the point in living anymore because t100 had gone out of its way to prove their stories aren’t worth telling unless they’re tragedies. i spent weeks talking people out of suicide and even receiving suicide notes in my inbox that i never published out of respect.
you tell me, if people you care about were driven to suicidal ideation because of something a group of people got together and premeditated for their own gain, would you just “let it go”? or would you want some form of retribution for the pain they inflicted?
tl;dr: we still post about it occasionally because watching them fail is cathartic. it’s watching karma in action. if it really bothers you that much, you know where the unfollow button is.
