MLP VA's / Producers / Writers who are anti-bronies?

Recommended Posts

Interesting question, has there ever been someone who has worked on the show but doesn't like bronies, it's interesting because we hear alot about the people who embrace bronies but has there ever been an instance where one of the show staff has hated bronies and if so why?

I'm gonna assume that if there was any they would mostly be ex-writers for the show or something the lines of fired staff

I don't know. Most of the show staff are often very respectful when addressing the fans.

The IDW comic staff on the other hand...yeah, they're a different story. More than three years later, and the Ted Anderson controversy is still fresh in my mind. :maud:

How would we even know? It's not something that would be casually bantered around.

How so? I'm just curious, because I've never heard anything about that.

Care to explain?

 

@VeroxVitrus: I don't see any reason to believe so.

The Ted Anderson controversy came from an annual comic with the Power Ponies as protagonists, where he put in the background a ponysona of a known feminazi  (female supremacist). As expected, readers made a big fuzz that lasted for about 2 years

Thanks for explaining this so I didn't have to. Yeah, Ted Anderson made known his disdain for men and the brony fandom after he got called out for that and people were angrier than ever. Thankfully, it's been a good while since we've had drama like that.

Ah, I was guessing there'd be more to the story than just the image, because otherwise it just could've been specifically about Feminists (without knowing who this is, I can't blanket-assume Feminazi) instead of the fandom in general. Is there a good article about this anywhere or a video blog?


Anyway, what has always worried me more is "How does Hasbro feel about it?" The ones footing the bill, not the artists. Hasbro never sold products to Bronies, so it seems like we never really mattered to them, except maybe when a big dramafest or scandal within the community happens and it gives them a bit of negative PR as a result. This has also scared me about G5 because I can't help but wonder if they would take a step back towards a more "girls only" show in attempt to filter out the Bronies.

Here is the article.

Also, yes, I was here for MLPForums talking about it, I'm that old. :P

I did love that story Ted Anderson wrote about Celestia and Spike teaming up. Honestly, that was the only MLP Comic story that actually resonated with what was going on in my life at the time.

Shame that the anti-brony drama happened.

They will probably thinking economical, so I wouldn't worry about that as long as semi-enough bronies exist. Not to mention, they always made jokes children can't understand, such as references to old books/series/movies. And season 8 tells me with certain jokes that they will keep it that way.

That, and Lauren Faust designed the world and show at season 1 directly to be more compatible to adults in terms of entertaining to watch.

 

I wouldn't worry about unhatched chickens until I get a very reason to do so. I don't.

Well, the juicy part of the story came after, with demands for Ted’s firing, and a good part of the fandom being extremely pissed, for what was, in the end, a simple cameo. Hell, I’ve been seeing threads about this popping out years after the incident :dash:

I don't know the producers' stances on bronies, but I haven't heard of one that doesn't like bronies.

Well, the easy pick us Hasbro himself. He has only done things to stop Bronies.

The other guy is the true side of John de Lancie, according to Jenny Nicolson (see the last BronyCon documentary on YouTube)
