Fans making ~OT3~ fan art is beyond parody and the pinnacle of sad-but-harmless standom behavior, but what I really wanna know is how off the rails the Lesy shippers currently are. Have the fics been rewritten? Has the AO3 tag been wiped?

I bet those AU all girl school 40-chapter fics look awkward now!!

I've seen the darkest corners of boy/group twitter and I will not let y'all live! At least, to their credit, Little Mix doesn't have fans who think one of the girls' babies is fake and that they're still in a secret same sex relationship with another band member, past or present.

Did I miss the comments that were "dogpiling" on her looks or?? Did they get deleted? I'm so confused. Not some people having stronger reactions to her getting photoshopped out of fan art than her actual blackfishing.
There’s been a lot of it on Twitter.

I’m not sure anyone here is having a stronger reaction to photoshopped fanart than the blackfishing though. Where are you getting that from?
 
People equaling to a twink editing their lastfm cover photos to deleting her legacy in Little Mix. Some of you should chill. It's really not that serious.
Minimising the discussion to ‘twink editing’ but exaggerating the reaction to ‘deleting her legacy’ isn’t exactly a fair representation.

Jesy’s done something unacceptable, and has rightly been called out for it. Her single has bombed and that’s a pop justice.

BUT there has been tonnes and tonnes of additional, toxic backlash about her looks more generally, about how things ‘weren’t right all along’, speculation about rifts with the others, calls for them to re-record everything without her, editing her out of cover art for albums she contributed to, criticism of the way she (a successful recording artist) sings…

All of which dilutes the fact that her blackfishing is the problem. It’s not going to cut through to her, and it’s not going to cut through to everyone who thinks we should ‘leave her alone’ because ‘she’s being bullied’.

I love Cheryl and Kimberley!

We’ve literally just gone through 220 pages of Jesy being dragged for blackfishing.

People can feel like the artwork thing is weird and also disapprove of Jesy blackfishing - the two aren’t mutually exclusive.
 
I was actually in a gay bar in Newcastle a few days back and this young woman wearing a 21st birthday sash asked for Boyz. The drag host over the mic said no, and gave a polite articulate response as to why the song wouldn’t be played (re blackfishing etc) but also quipped that the song was also shit.

The 21 year old looked confused.
Anyway, make of that what you will.
