I honestly have no clue why people literally want to murder this character. I get that people dislike him because they think he's a generic boyfriend, but other than that I can't find anything to hate about him.
Exactly, "oh he got to take Twilight to the dance and not my OC"
that's the only excuse they have. They might also complain that he's bland, well if they haven't noticed a lot of the male characters on the show aren't that developed anyways so he's pretty average. Aside from that I actually like his character. But It's incredible how immature sum of the fans acted over his existence. what the hell?
For me, I don't really care anymore. Hasbro can do every they want. It's THEIR show. If it means changing all the Mane Six into Alicorn, then fine. Flash Sentry, yeah, the romance may have been too forced. BUT again it's Hasbro's show.
