We have at the moment at least 1 confirmed e-mail from Hasbro (UK Division) that states they will not be changing the name. This appeared about 45 minutes on the Bronies Facebook group from a member. So things are looking good for our favorite grey pegasus.
To recap, last Thursday we received confirmed reports from a WLF worker that Hasbro was pressuring them to remove the Derpy merchandise, believed to be due to a small group of people who were highly upset about her scene in The Last Roundup. The community rallied behind Derpy with a petition and twitter campaign. Last time we checked the “Save Derpy Petition” had 25,266 signatures on it. Even here at DHN the article on the subject has 22,000 pageviews.
