Gawker’s Article on Friendship is Magic + Hasbro Response to Derpy’s Takedown

Over on Gawker, a new article has popped up about our little Derpy extravaganza.   They acutally did a pretty good job of digging through the piles of information that has been flooding every aspect of the fandom for the past few days, as well as bugging Cereal for an interview.  It is Gawker though, so expect some snide remarks buried in there. 

One key point to focus on is the Hasbro PR rep’s response:

“The ‘My Little Pony Friendship is Magic’ series has always been about acceptance and inclusion, and the series strives to convey that through the playful antics of a diverse cast of characters,” Hasbro spokeswoman Nicole Angello told us over email. “Some viewers felt that aspects of the episode ‘The Last Roundup’ did not stay true to the core message of friendship which is the heart and soul of the series. Hasbro Studios decided to make slight audio alterations to this single episode.”

So there you have it!
