Hello, this is Dan with a mini-rant... YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED...
So, I've been hearing a lot about the whole character of "Derpy Hooves," with the face that started the whole fandom, and how a lot of bronies are getting mad because she's now canon or something, and how Hasbro is getting rid of her from all the T-shirts and everything. Well, here's my thoughts on it.
First of all, I hate the show, so I can't talk, but I must say, it's dumb that they're getting rid of Derpy. If I was forced to pick a favorite pony, I'd pick Derpy. (Again, I hate the show, so don't think I'm a brony.)
But secondly, I think that there are two parties to blame behind this: Hasbro and the bronies.
Hasbro seems to be literally kissing the arses of the bronies. The bronies see Derpy and get on their knees and beg for Derpy to appear again, and Hasbro kisses their arses and Derpy does appear again. Then the T-shirts come out, and Derpy appears in the opening titles, and everybody loves Derpy. Then they give Derpy her first speaking role. But now, everybody hates Derpy for some reason, and are trying to get rid of her from the show, when they had just begged for her to be canon. And you know what Hasbro is doing? Kissing their arses.
So now, there's no more Derpy shirts, no more Derpy dolls, no more Derpy nothing. And you know something? It's not Derpy's fault.
Hasbro, grow a backbone and realize that you don't have to constantly kiss the arses of the fans. They aren't paying you to do it, y'know.
Apparently the reason why they're doing that is because Derpy supposedly sounds like a retarded person.
You know what? The fans of The Amazing World of Gumball should go ballistic on the guys who created that show, because the dad sounds like he's half-drunk, half-retarded.
...oh wait, that show doesn't have any fans.
