Huh, so I'm way behind on watching MLP:FIM, but according to Tumblr, the latest episode featured Ditzy Doo/Derpy Hooves getting speaking lines for the first time. Cool beans!

*watches the scene in question*

...

WOW GUYS THAT WAS SUPER UNCOMFORTABLE.

I mean making the name "Derpy Hooves" canon was already uncomfortable, but then they had to go and make it like TEN TIMES MORE UNCOMFORTABLE. I AM ALMOST IMPRESSED BY HOW MUCH CRINGE THEY MANAGED TO CRAM INTO THAT SCENE.

Normally I'd say a show's writers should listen to their fans, but this ceases to be a good idea when the fans in question mostly hang out on 4chan.

ugggh

I tried to find the scene in question on YouTube but it doesn't seem to be up.

W...what happened? Or should I just be grateful I haven't seen it?

Yeah, that was definitely a painful scene to get through. And to think, its all because someone got fixated on a background animation error of no consequence whatsoever.

Well, that was the most uncomfortable episode of MLP I've ever watched.

Just so much ugh all around. I understand why they would want to pander to the goddamn fanbase, but the fanbase was PERFECTLY HAPPY when the cross-eyed pony was just a background character snuck into scenes as an Easter egg.

What's really sad is that there are some Brony fanfics that treat "Derpy" with more respect and give her a much better portrayal than what we got in that scene.
