I'm still amazed at how wound up she got over a fairly polite tweet when she gets death threaths and stuff from de/se fans alot.

So TVD cast and writer has no respect for their audience. What else is new? They've been doing it with their fucked up writing for almost 3 full seasons and we've let them by continuing to watch this sucky production. Why shouldn't they take it to the next level by not only insulting our intellects but our ethnicities as well. With every passing incident, this show just fades every so slightly into deeper oblivion.

This boycott is an absolute joke...yes it was wrong for Matt Davis to write anything negative about any fan but as for the issue with Julie Plec. If fans dont want to hear what she has to say dont tweet her. Most tv stars have twitter followers in the thousands do people really think they sit there for hours going through each and every mention they get. Its just ridiculous for fans to expect the cast of any show to tweet them back... Anyway I dont believe any true fan would be able to resist watching tonights episode....

Are you serious? Did you even read the thread? This isn't about her tweeting fans back, it's about the way she responded to them.

 

She gets thousands of angry fans that even send her death threats, and the one time she decides to snap it's at a fan who was actualy being polite. It's not even about her sitting through the tweets for hours, I'm 80 percent positive that she scrolls through the hate mail, but all this fan did was ask why she had to pair Bonnie with her step brother. Matt is really more wrong, but Julie makes us question her logic even more by saying Kol and Bonnie (which she pulled out of nowhere because the fan was talking about Bonnie and Jamie) are twisted and wrong, while she and the rest of the staff are writing Klaus as a sudden romantic and putting Elena in a triangle with two Rippers. Fans have every right to call her on her bull shit.

@Lin_Fisher2012 I follow Julie and have NEVER tweeted her. She did not sent out that tweet to just the people that tweeted her she sent it to all of us. I would certainly not call myself a Bonnie fan, but I am an Originals and Kol fan. That tweet pissed me off to the point I almost did tweet her back, but 140 characters is not enough to get the point across. I believe that was one of the main problems with all that happened that day, not one person was able to truely convay what they really wanted to say in 140 characters (twitter was the WRONG forum). With what she said it made it appear she was saying that Elena and Caroline must be ugly, weak women because they for sure are with murderous vampires (which is the show she writes). Also every other vampire has some humanity to them but Kol is only a muderous vampire.

I get why people want to boycott but it won't do anything and it's kind of stupid to try. They reason those tweets were taken off was probably because they felt sorry and didn't really mean it. Don't you ever get mad at someone and tweet about it? It happens, get over it. And there are other people involved with the show. This is only two of them. Just because these two get a little frustrated and tweet about it doesn't mean that everyone else thinks the same thing. Why punish an entire show for something only a few people took part in. If you want to do something then unfollow them or something but boycotting the show is not necessary. Stop paying so much attention to celebrates and do your own thing. Your life doesn't depend on what someone else is doing or saying.

I posted this in the bashing Plec thread but it seems appropriate that i repost it here:

I think its time i joined in on the convo. I've been reading this one for a while but decided to hold off on commenting because i wanted to see if any new user would jump in and add anything worth mantioning. The outcome........UTTER RUBBISH. How long has it been since we've been calling for some cohesive and tangable train of thought from Plec? She has lost all credibility in her writing skills. This show used to be EPIC. It promised us the journey of 2 FUCKED up brothers, the mistakes they made in the past and the sacrifices they make now. What has it become??? As the original post detailed, the show has been swallowed up into these unbelieveable love stories about a teenage girl and 2 psychotic brothers. And you know the worst thing about it...THE FUCKING DOUBLE STANDARDS that the HIPPO called Plec employed for her own lack of creativity and logic. No one in their right mind would want Kol and Bonnie together, but that was never the point was it. The point was that she called Bonnie strong and beautiful and then asked why would we want to pair her up with a murderous vamp like KOL. ARE YOU KIDDING ME PLEC?????? What exactly have you been laying the foundations for over the last three seasons if not that. Correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't Caroline a strong and beautiful vamp. So why are YOU pairing her with Klaus, the EFFING KING OF MURDER? Just when i think she can't sink any lower. As for this new user, what exactly are your points here? We don't care how hard they work and how passionate they are about their work. The fact of the matter is, IF YOU DO A JOB please have some respect for your audience and stop shoving shit into their mouths. No one is asking her to be the writer, infact, they are so many people who want her to quit its just amazing. The rating for this show are going down. People (non teengers) can't be expected to tune in for an hour every week to see nothing but Elena swinging between the 2 brothers like some God damn pendulum. Where is the storyline? Where is the character development? As the original post said, its a disgrace that after more than 60 episodes we know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about Bonnie. Alaric also has a past. What about the originals, in the so called "Season of the Originals". What is the sense in even calling it that if all you focus on is how ONE original is getting in the way of the precious little love triangle. I just don't understand anymore. All i'm saying is if Plec wants to run this show into the ground then by all means that is her right. But she better not DARE to question the logic of fan pairings, because she has pretty much set the standard for unnatural and unrealistic pairings. Her every tweet contradicts what she herself has allowed to happen on the screen.

There's no way that she would ever think of Elena and Caroline as ugly weak women, despite the fact that certain episodes make them out to appear this way, especially Elena. The problem with her tweet is that it contradicts her writing "warrior princess" Elena into a triangle with "murderous vampires" as well as writing "I'm not girly Caroline anymore " with the world's worst vampire ever.
