Some people are too sensitive. So? Regardless of what kind of art it is, someone will dislike it on some grounds.
As to why so many people are such assholes, you could probably trace it to online disinhibition effect: [link]. It might be larger than that on an anthropological level... but that's beyond the scope of this forum, frankly.
If someone commenting offhandedly that a picture has somehow altered their view of the characters is cruelty, then you haven't been around the internet long enough. There are worse comments. Meanwhile, some people have the idea that their opinion matters. They'll express it no matter what. Some people have little filter between how they feel and how they express it. Especially online where there are no consequences. True, people could learn better self control theoretically, and once they do, we could have things like world peace and whatnot. Sadly, that simply won't ever happen. Such is the way of things. Best you can do is, as Gandhi noted, be the change you wish to see in the world. Meanwhile a tougher hide might be an order.
Eh, people like that are abundunt. Some are pretty whiny, commenting on every single deviation they don't like. But you can't deny sometimes when they do express their dislike for certain things in a civil manner, they still often get treated badly and called homophobic and even racist. These are pretty strong labels to slap on people, so that's why you have to be careful. But in this case, yeah, this person was probably a homophobe.
Okay, you're calling someone homophobic and cruel. That's a pretty terrible accusation. I've seen a whole bunch of people say this sort of thing whenever they make a comment about a yaoi/yuri relationship from their fandom "ruining their childhood" when that doesn't make that person homophobic, it just makes what they said stupid. That's why I was asking what was exactly said.
No one is telling you to quote it word per word. You could give a simple breakdown of what they said and why it was offensive without revealing who the artist is.
What was essentially said was: How could you do this? You took a wonderful character, and made him lower than dirt when you put him in this pairing. I don't understand how you could do something so sick and wrong. I can never look at this movie the same way, and it's all your fault.
They left another review and while the wording was different, they made sure to emphasize how sick and wrong the picture was.
Ok, I'm starting to get what you're saying love. If they didn't like it, they could have just avoided drama by just clicking the x button. Unfortunately, some people either don't think before they type or insist on letting the artist know how they feel even if it's extremely unnecessary :/ Best to ignore them and not fuel the flames
Exactly. Normally I do ignore them. But this time, I just couldn't stay quite. So instead of confronting that reviewer (and probably lowering myself to their level), I came here to have my views be heard.
