My final words on the Lauren Zuke drama
I’m already starting to see “go die” comments directed at Lauren, tagged ship hate, etc. so I felt this to be necessary.
Real life person > fictional characters and ships
All she said was “I don’t speak for my coworkers, but this is what I intended. Ship whatever you want”. That’s it.
I am an animator, myself. I can tell you all, right now: Storyboards, and everything else on a show, have to get approval. Not just by people working on the show, but by producers, censors, etc. The lapidot and amedot stuff did not get slipped in “unnoticed”. The rest of the crewniverse knew, and animated it, and sent it to air.
Also, Zuke isn’t the only person to draw Amedot/Lapidot.
If there’s lapidot or amedot hints in future non-Zuke episodes, are y’all still going to send her death threats? Call her names? If you want to analyze a show on your own blog, go for it. But once you start dragging in real life people, insulting them, telling them to “go die”, you need to take a step back and calm the hell down. And tagging your ship hate has always been stupid, regardless of fandom.
If you value fictional characters over real life people, unfollow me.
