I guess that sole
comment where someone suggested Stiles should go for Derek was easy to miss… [x
Yeah, no, that’s most definately not what the majority of us said. But I get it DEREK is a name that could so easily mistaken for LYDIA or MALIA, ami’righ?
I’ve been ignoring that Facebook post, because the screencaps turning up on my feed made it clear it was eye-roll worthy. Given the responses being posted by fans, I figured the PR team would just let it quietly disappear.
Obviously I gave them too much credit. This “summary” of the response is so poorly done. Shame on you Teen Wolf PR team. If you had to make a post and didn’t want to mention Derek, it could still have been spun in ways which weren’t gross, including focusing on how worried the fans were for Stiles’ wellbeing — that could actually have made really great copy. Much more fresh and interesting than the tripe peddled in this article.
But no, instead the writer went for a complete disregard of the two clearly expressed popular opinions, and a gross misrepresentation based on the few other comments for the sake of a het love triangle that barely exists in the show.
Homophobic. Lacking compassion for mental health issues. Unethical misrepresentation of the facts.
Congratulations. You’ve achieved a trifecta of incompetence, Teen Wolf PR.
THIS IS SOME STRAIGHT UP BULLSHIT and I am surprised everyone is being so calm about it.
I love how in order to ignore all the Sterek comments, they felt it necessary to use a pro-Malia/Stiles comment from someone who can’t even spell Stiles’ name correctly.
It’s not even about Sterek at this point (although I agree that it’s a shame that they didn’t even mention Derek after he was by a landslide the most named partner for Stiles). It’s beyond ridiculous how they claim to SUM UP the reactions to this poll and then exclusively add things like “STYDIA IS COOL” and “STYLES AND MALIA YAY” (notice how they obviously couldn’t fine a comment that had Stiles spelled correctly) while it is OBVIOUS and clear even to people who have no idea what this is about that the majority of replies says “FUCK ALL OF THIS, ESPECIALLY THIS QUESTION. Stiles doesn’t need a girlfriend or a hook up, Stiles needs some rest and peace and time to get his shit together and recover from weeks of nightmares, mental torture and the knowledge that he KILLED PEOPLE. Same goes for Lydia who has been emotionally terrorized since season 2 and Malia who killed her own family and then was trapped in an animal body for years”.
I don’t even want to know how long they searched for comments like those they posted, because that poll is flodded with things like what I just wrote above.
