Sorry I've seen the post about the "new fans" who are disrespectful of their "humor" towards Katie I totally agree I didn't have any idea that happened, but surely the majority are kids and have no limits What about if instead of making posts criticizing their attitudes, tell them privately bc maybe they don't realize that their jokes are offensive they think is friendly like the jokes you do w/ friends but inappropriate for someone they don't know like Katie? is no need to point out publicly :)
Hey anon, I appreciate both the idea and the sentiment, however from personal experience, I can personally say it does not work. I have actually spoken with a number of them. Various fans that have been upset about it have and it has little to no impact. Hence my reasoning for pointing out that some simply don’t care. It is especially the more popular ones that don’t care and they are each old enough to no longer be considered kids and understand that it is wrong. At the very least they are old enough to consider the feelings of others but they unfortunately do not.
Most importantly, in return, if fans that are displeased about it wish to use their blogs as a way to air their frustration on the matter it is their prerogative to do so. If some choose to come to me to share their opinion, I am more than happy to be an outlet for them. Many fans have been staying quiet for a long time and I personally see no problem with them speaking up. I stand by them. It is nice to see people coming together against the hate and disrespect because quite frankly we have spent too much time seeing just the opposite in the fandom.
In my opinion, a positive thing that has come from this is that fans that are frustrated with the discourse are able to see that they are not alone and can appreciate that fact and hopefully even find some new blogs to follow that respect Katie McGrath at all times as opposed to using her as a device to grossly amuse themselves and others.
Thanks for stopping by. 💗
