I've been, against my better judgement, watching the feud between and , two of my friends.
And to be honest? I'm now ashamed of a lot of our viewers for how THEY reacted BOTH FREAKING TIMES something like this has happened.
I'm not going to support or shoot down either of my friends here, but I AM going to make my feelings known about how a lot of our viewers are handling it.
This is NOT directed at those of you who handle these situations peacefully, this is directed at those of you who haven't.
So, LZ says Alex messed up big time, you guys HARASS and THREATEN ALEX to the point he's scared to death. Then Alex says LZ did something wrong to him and you HARASS and THREATEN LZ, making him angry and upset!
This does NOT help the situation. AT ALL. PERIOD. It makes it WORSE!
You're making the parties involved MORE emotional, raising the conflict even FURTHER than it already was rose.
You're making a person with self esteem problems have WORSE ONES and a person with clinical depression MORE depressed and angry.
You're doing the WORST POSSIBLE THING you COULD do in this situation.
You want to defend one side? FINE! Defend them! Strengthen THEIR points! But don't BUCKING ATTACK the other person!
You know ALL you've managed to accomplish with that?
Making Alex think LZ turned everyone against him and making LZ think Alex intentionally lied and manipulated people against him.
How does THAT help the situation AT ALL?
In fact, the present situation was in part CAUSED by one of you deciding to insult LZ instead of just let him leave peacefully like he WANTED TO!
As I said, I'm disappointed and ashamed in those of you that did this. We're BRONIES. What happened to love and tolerance? What about friendship is magic?
I'm PROUD of those who DID just defend the side they chose instead of attacking the other. But the rest of you who didn't? I'm ASHAMED.
I'm one of THE most optimistic and accepting people you could hope to meet. Just ask Alex and LZ, they KNOW how much it takes to get me TRULY clopped off and you guys managed to do it. Congratulations!
I'm not saying 'you're horrible people'. I'm saying 'you messed up and owe BOTH parties an apology for what happened!'
I'm sorry, but for once in my life I don't give a darn who this makes mad, I'm standing up for what I think is right and shaming a mob I feel NEEDS shamed.
I apologize if I upset anyone, but I had to get this off my chest.
