hi guys guess who's coming back

My Little Pony artist Andy Price recently made an
appearance at the Mu mime and
Comic Hon. When one fan asked if Hasbro would
ever bring back a popular crossbreed pony
named Derpy, Andy Price talked about the
Derpy controversy and why My Little Pony fans
are unlikely to ever hear that name again.
Andy Price sad, "The short version l is
somebody somewhere made a mild complaint
that Derpy could be taken derogatory. Hasbro,
they cut l oft before anything happened.
They' re like you know what if this is the case,
then we don' t need to go there. Let' s not poke
the bear, which they are protecting themselves.
Derpy is there, but you' re not going to hear that
name. For exam pie. at San Diego Comic Con,
they put out the exclusive figure Derpy. That word is nowhere on the box."
Andy Price continued. "It was an accident that the fans went nuts over. Derpy was an animation bobtron why
her eyes were like that l was a goof in the animation. And somebody somewhere went look at that pony.
she sally.' And she took oft, and then they gave her that little scene with her and Rainbow Dash where she calls
her Derpy. Somebody somewhere sad that could be taken wrong; and Hasbro sad we' re shutting the book on
l right now before anything happens."
Andy Price explained "It you' got Mic key and Don aid and Goofy, then you could say Ggoty' s kind derpy.
And that' s how I take t I take l as like Goofy. But l has also been used as a derogatory term, so Hasbro' s like
better safe than sorry. So you' ll see her in the background all the time. but I sereously doubt you will ever hear
that name again."

Yes, it's horrible, but let's try not to talk about it.
Brings the mood down and all.

You are one of the reasons why we need to be able to thumb down people more than 5 times.

I understand he tried to paint Hasbro as simply being protective and not wanting to risk ANY potential upset

But this was still the first sign for me that they are colossal cunts and do not deserve the IP they are milking
