At some point maybe they will realize they need to make him stop doing interviews. Or at least limit him to questions he can answer with “poop”.
It think he tried…
…and failed dismally
Like, he’s been to a few cons. Surely he realises that the people who go to cons are the same people who write fic and that they aren’t ‘kids’?
Surely by now they’ve realised that they should only let Hoechlin out to do interviews. And maybe a few of the others with (his) supervision. But never Posey. Just, never.
MTV do employ actual PR people, right? /facepalm
No he didn’t fail. You just don’t like his answer.
I don’t think he means “these kids” disparagingly. Go watch the video for context and stop finding reasons to complain about every damn thing he does. Like I can’t take a bunch of assholes insulting his intelligence in all these roundabout ways and still thinking themselves high and mighty enough to make comments like this. Tyler Posey spent the weekend answering questions putting all his heart into it and you’re trying to find something bad about what he’s saying here even though he literally just said that he thinks what the fans do with fanfiction is great.
Like the Teen Wolf fandom is made up of mostly high school kids and people around his age. I don’t think saying “these kids” is a problem. I really don’t think he means “these children.” I find it strange that people need Posey to take every single thing into consideration every time he talks or does something and when he doesn’t (because it’s impossible) suddenly he’s an unintelligent barbarian that they should keep in a cage. He can’t win for losing with you people.
literally get over yourselves.
Okay, literally, I’m so done with all this hate on Posey.
I agree 100% with the person who wrote above me. Get over yourselves.
This fandom has literally turned into a bunch of people who will look for any reason, no matter how ridiculous, to hate the show, the cast, the creators, and even other fandom members, and I am SICK OF IT.
Just because you don’t like what he has to say, doesn’t mean you have to take everything he’s ever said out of context and turn it into a hate thread. Like stop.
He literally said “I’m not against it” because he knows about all the anger towards him and his past fanfiction comments.
He’s not a perfect. And he’s not going to agree with everything his fans do/say/create just for the simple fact that they’re his fans.
People fail to forget that this cast aren’t just celebrities, they’re human beings. And they’re not always going to say the right thing. It doesn’t mean we should take it as a personal offense and then spread hate towards them over it. Like STOP.
If you want to talk about people offending the teen wolf fandom and it’s members, it’s YOU, the ones who choose to spread the hate and make pointless drama instead of just spreading love and support to the show you claim to love and the people who make it for you.
Literally everything these two wonderful people said before this. Idk, I’m older than Tyler Posey and I write fanfic and I’m not over here taking offense to what he said? He thinks it’s great and he literally says he’s not against it, like, what more do you people want? He’s just saying these kids like “this part of the fandom” not to knock you down, chill out.
And as for the fact that he said fic has nothing to do with teen wolf, it’s a fairly accurate assessment. Most fics are AUs and only take the characters and put them into situations that the fans want to see the characters in.
And you know what, screw you for saying that he should only be asked questions that he can answer with poop. That’s part of the problem. People rarely think to ask the cast questions that they want to answer. All of the cast, Posey included, do the best that they can to answer questions that deserve their attention and honesty. Posey realizes that a lot of the fans are “those kids” who write fic and he legit thinks that’s great. I don’t see how the fandom has managed, once again, to turn something great that he said into something bad.
Do you just go around criticizing everything all the time? Doesn’t that get exhausting?
Also, for the record, Posey is a much better interviewee than some of the other cast members (*cough* Dylan) and he’s not stupid. He truly cares about the fans and everything that they do. He appreciates all forms of fandom creativity. Yes, he doesn’t read the fanfic, but he appreciates that people care so much about the characters that they take them and put them all in worlds where they can see what they want to happen to them play out. He loves fanart. In fact, he owns fanart that he likes the best.
When I met him, he listened to what I had to say and gave me really encouraging words and was super sweet and intelligent.
Don’t belittle Tyler Posey and mock his intelligence. He is a person and he deserves your respect. It’s okay not to like him but it’s not okay to be a jerk about it. Don’t be a douche.
Like, I literally cannot understand what’s so bad about what he said.This fandom gets offended over every little thing, I swear. Grow up.
