"YOU’RE ALL SO ANGRY AND YOU’RE NEVER HAPPY."
Yes, yes, preach it. Seriously.
Also, Erica and Boyd were only killed because Gage and Sinqua chose to leave the show. Jeff had story-lines set up for Erica and Boyd.
^ truth! so next time y’all get angry for dumb reasons, DO YOUR RESEARCH!
Research shows that Jeff didn’t tell Jill Wagner about her character dying the DAY it was being filmed. He made a statement along the lines of “You’re a bad guy, don’t assume you’re going to stay" at a panel for the fans to hear. But there’s Peter, Gerard, Deucalion, The Twins….they’re all bad guys and/or have done questionable things…..they’re still around.
Research shows that Melissa Ponzio was afraid of being killed off (without being told, mind you) that she searched for other jobs that could host her (The Walking Dead, a small cameo appearance in The Following) and that’s why she appears in these shows.
Research shows that Haley Webb has made repeated statements of how she would like to return to the show. None of them have been addressed.
Research shows that while Keahu Mahealani has been in the show SINCE SEASON 1, he’s never included in fan panels. Yet the Twins are suddenly boosted to the same level as the Tylers, Dylan, Crystal, Holland, and even Daniel when it comes to promotion……..and before you say that “Maybe it didn’t fit in his schedule”, well, how about you RESEARCH the panel where Keahu had to literally crash as an attendant and ask “Where’s Danny?” as the first question. Hahahaha what a light-hearted joke, right?!
Research shows that while Gage and Sinqua left, saying scheduling issues had to do with the reason for their departure, Jeff decided to off of their characters. Yet, when Colton Haynes decides to leave WITHOUT TELLING JEFF and the cast and crew to work in a different show, Jeff decides to “leave the door open” in case Jackson might want to return…..why not leave the door open for Erica and Boyd?
A person doesn’t need to state that they hate other races or women in order to be categorized as a racist or sexist. It is their actions that categorize them as such, and much of those actions are internalized due to years and years of our society making us believe what is right or wrong. If you don’t believe this is true, I recommend you RESEARCH Big Brother 15 and the controversy they’ve been dealing with about the casual racist, anti-semitism, homophobic, and sexist comments made throughout the season, and how it is all a reflection of American society.
We’re not getting angry for DUMB REASONS. We’re getting angry for legitimate and troubling patterns created by the show runner and the fandom. And believe me we do our research, we do more research than you can possibly imagine, because we have to be constantly explaining to this faction of the fandom things that they’re obviously trying to shut us down as being “angry” and “dumb.”
We have to constantly be asserting our position in this fandom through research of examples and patterns. And why do it? Why not just stop and enjoy a “cute” show about teenagers and werewolves? Well, sweet honey child the answer is simple! Because we refuse to shut down our brains, and we refuse to be persuaded by what the media is feeding us. Because as much as you would like to think “it’s just a show”, it isn’t. It is representation that is being ripped from the little show we thought would rise above all others.
It isn’t anger. It’s disappointment.
It’s Keahu Kahuanui who plays Danny Mahealani, not Keahu Mahealani. But this is a very good post.
