The whole thing was DESIGNED to be a "Whatever you THINK Hasbro is doing to taunt you, it could be a lot worse" anyway, and I'd like to apologize to anyone who was fooled, I didn't think anybody would think it was real when I posted it, so I didn't include a note that it was fake.
Here you are, everyone. The lovely creator of the hoax to put it to rest once and for all. Those who found it amusing, congrats! Those who overreacted and became whiny brats? Tsk, tsk.
I think the problem here was that Hasbro paid way too much attention to the Brony fanbase, and thus Bronies feel like Hasbro owes them something and think they can tell them whatever they want, and if they don't protest it they will cry, complain, whine and bitch about it. I love Friendship is Magic, but the extreme Bronies are ruining it for a lot of people
Yeah, exactly. They catered to the fans too much, and now as a result some fans are spoiled. It’s nice to give a shout-out now and then, but Hasbro got in WAY over their heads.
What was the "I just thought I’d drop this here since a certain hoax about a certain pony seems to be fooling a lot of people, and the drama certain folks are causing is RIDICULOUS and ANNOYING." about? I'm not hugely immersed into the fandom so maybe you could fill me in on the craziness going on?
Someone photoshopped a CERTAIN FILLY using the backcard in that post and a bunch of fans saw it, believed it, and are ONCE AGAIN being entitled, spoiled brats about it.
I’m not covering any more than that here. I’m keeping that part of the fandom as far away from this blog as possible. If the other mods want to bring it back, that’s cool I guess, but there are some real whiners in this fandom.
