i've always felt that some of the hate for abbie was rooted in misogny! disregarding the cake thing which was stupid, this fandom is so critical of her for.. having emotions? getting angry? it leaves a bad taste in my mouth
I mean, very possibly. And let’s not forget that she’s the only black girl in the main gang (if your MC isn’t black) and the fandom’s threshold for criticism of black women is a lot lower than other characters.
Also, anyone who wasted all of their college years on Tyler would be angry too.
