There seems to be in certain circles of the community, controversy over Derpy’s first full scene on the show. Its of course ranged from total glee to complete and utter disgust because people actually think the show is making fun of disabled people. First I would like to ask those people who are so butthurt, what are you smoking, cause I think I want some. Its gone as far as people writing Mrs. Amy Keating Rogers (the writer behind the episode) to voice their displeasure that she would make fun of disabled people (despite the fact her son is a disabled person). Thankfully others have written her to thank her, and have been e-mailed back with very kind words.
There isn’t much that makes me want to slam my head against the wall over and over, but the reaction from certain circles in this fandom have made me put multiple holes in my office wall. But enough of that subject, cause I’m sure someone will write me an angry letter.
And for the record both sides have a valid opinion, its the people who are so butt damaged they have to write the creators of a cartoon to voice their displeasure like someone’s grandfather who spends his time writing letters to everything he dislikes.
So from all of us here at Derpy Hooves News, and the sane side of the fandom, we would like to thank Mrs. Rogers, and the staff of Studio B for this great gift. There isn’t too many other shows that actually give their fans this much attention directly in the show. Thank you, and keep up the good work.
