Something’s Wrong With The Outlander Fandom and It Needs To Stop   65 comments

Hi all,

Marie here, I thought we needed to clarify a few things. Something’s been very wrong with parts of the Outlander fandom lately. It’s turning into a toxic place and trust me, I know about toxic fandoms. I own a big site for an actor who was once part of a fandom like that. Those of you who follow both sites know this, you’ve also known me for a while. Which means that you also know that I don’t stand for this.

We have very strong principals on this site. One of them is that we don’t stand for hate, ever. Whether it’s hate being sent to actors of the show, to other actors, or to other people. A lot of people find it very easy to sit behind a computer keyboard and send hate over the internet. To those who send hateful tweets, I’m going to ask you this: What you’re about to tweet, would you say it to said person if they were standing in front of you? If the answer is no, then don’t tweet it. If the answer is yes, walk away from your computer, take a few deep breaths, or go for a walk, then and only then, come back. If you still feel like tweeting hate, don’t tweet it.

It’s fine to be angry about something, we understand that. But there’s a difference between being angry and being hateful towards someone. There are ways you can express yourself without being hateful. Someone once said that hating someone is letting someone live rent free inside your head. No truer words have been spoken. If someone is being truly awful and you can’t stand it, the answer is simple: click on the block button, they won’t show up in your feed ever again. Problem solved.

We won’t shy away from calling people out. What some people tweeted to William Shatner today was horrible. People were actually tagging us in their hateful tweets to William Shatner. First of all, we don’t want to be part of that. Secondly, why is it even remotely okay to be so hateful towards someone?

Like I mentioned earlier on Twitter, if you tag us in hateful comments towards other people, if you send us hate via tweets or throw shade at us we will block you. If you leave hateful comments below we will IP block you off the site. If you send us hateful tweets on our personal accounts, we will also block you. Nobody has time for that. There’s enough drama in real life, no need to add fandom drama on top of that.

That being said, there are some awesome people in this fandom and those people deserve a huge shout-out. You guys are awesome and always amazing.

Stay positive, keep the negative away 😉

Definition of Shade from Urban Dictionary:

“Acting in a casual or disrespectful manner towards someone/dissing a friend”
Throwing shade, acting kinda shady
