JFC. There is never a shortage of wank in Teen Wolf fandom is there? Or hate for the actors when they say something not actually offensive while totally ignoring when an actor does say something really sketch because fans think they're hot or whatever.
Earlier in the week, Tyler Posey was asked about Sterek and he responded by saying he thought it was twisted and weird (keeping in mind his exposure to Sterek is primarily via interviewers waving stuff in his face trying to embarrass him) and that if people were only watching for Sterek, they're watching for the wrong reasons.
And you know what? He's right. He and the rest of the cast are constantly bombarded with questions about the Sterek shipp - not just by fans, but by media outlets hoping to get a good quote or some kind of reaction. I'm sure they'd all rather be talking about their character or the work they're doing on the show. Personally, I think Posey has had enough of it and though maybe he could have worded it differently, I don't blame him at all for finally saying something.
And now it has escalated to Posey getting death threats. Seriously, what the hell, people? So he doesn't like your shipp. Big deal. He thinks if you're only watching for Sterek, you're watching for the wrong reasons? He totally has the right to think that.
He is not obligated to pander to your shipp, especially if the most vocal of these shippers constantly degrade his character, photoshop him out of scenes, and out now sending him threats. What exactly does he have to like about that?
I'm a Sterek shipper, but I also shipp lots of other pairings on the show. The over-zealous Sterek shippers are making it unbearable for some of us. Today I've seen people backing out of the fandom and/or stepping out of the pairing because they're so done with the way people are behaving.
I feel really bad for the actors on the show that have to put up with this crap. No wonder Crystal Reed doesn't like to read fan reactions when people on twitter started a #killallison campaign. I wouldn't be surprised if Posey started backing away as well.
I just... I can't with these people. I want to go back to the days when we at least tried to pretend that the actors didn't know what we got up to in fandom except that we like them. All this transparency and accessibility is going really, really wrong.
