I'm annoyed that they made the change, and more so that they apparently 'had' to make the change. That's more my beef with it really. Never and still don't understand what was so offensive about Derpy.

Though I'm not annoyed enough to go signing petitions and what not. Honestly, it's their franchise, they can do whatever they want with it.

Love and Tolerate every pony. Don't feed the parasprites... err... hasbro

I don't know... "angry internet petition" seems to be about the level of seriousness warranted for something like this.

But seriously, I love MLP. I think it's a really cute and fun little show. But daaaaaaaaaamn, the fans really are ruining it for me :/ Some people are just sooo obsessed to the point that it doesn't make me want to be roped in with them and called a fan.

It's honestly the same reason that I stopped getting involved with World of Warcraft and League of Legends. The people I was involved with in those games are so damn serious all the time (as well as being obsessed and whiny/bitchy whenever anything changed or didn't change), that it just lost all the fun/magic to me.

MLP is doing the exact same thing now. I honestly don't mind that some people are upset, but it's like the whole damn Internet is up in arms over something relatively minor that will very unlikely change the major dynamics of the show. I mean, really, Derpy's only a bit-part character anyway.

A lot of the fun has been lost for me at this point from all the drama the fans have stirred up. I'm seriously considering dropping out of the pony-related projects I'm currently involved in because I'm just so burnt out and uninspired now...

This is why I've never actually bothered to keep up with most things pony related. I enjoy the show, I enjoy watching PMVs and checking out art on dA. I hit up EQdaily basically to find the link to the current episode. But news and talking to most fans... nope... don't bother. All it does is ruin the show in the end as a few of you have been stating.

I think most fans are still pretty cool. As always, it's a vocal minority of overly-shrill people who take their shit too seriously that ruin it for the rest of us.

Response from Hasbro
"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. 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."

You can read more about it here

Yea so.... It's sucks it was changed but 'it is what it is' and I really doubt it gonna change back.

I guess I was misinformed by someone else, I was told it was a permanent on-going change. Didn't really look into it much, saw some of the stuff, and just thought I'd share since I know there's alot of MLP fans on here.
I don't really prefer to stop liking something because of how some of the others fans are though. There are plenty of occasions where I will see comments by fans of various things I enjoy that make me squirm inside, but I'm not going to let them ruin something I like.

There's a lot of misinformation going around, however this article was useful for me. Also there's been an official statement from Hasbro it seems. I still wonder about the future of the character, but they aren't pulling her completely out of previous episodes, also they didn't change her name, they just modified the episode on iTunes (and I assume on the television reruns) As I said if you get the DVD titled "The Friendship Express" it's uncensored. I know because I have it.
