TMNT fans outside of this forum are wayyyyy more rude, in my experience. I can't tell you how many times I'd see absolute rage-fests from people on the official TMNT's Facebook page posts. They were always casuals, though. It's the casual fans who are truly assholes. When we're dicks it's because of passion, whereas they, well, I don't really know where their anger comes from. You know the type, the ones who feel entitled to seeing characters like Bebop & Rocksteady in iterations that they don't even watch in the first place, who think any version that isn't Fred Wolf's is a "gay spin-off", etc. People who say stuff like "Ralph" & "Master Shredder".

It's because they are PAID PROTESTERS.

Ugh tell me about it. They claim to love the TMNT so much and yet barely even remember the FW series. I remember once a few people in another forum saying that only a teenager would prefer the 2k3 series to the FW series and I told them that the 2k3 series had story arcs and more action than the FW series did but ofc they did not listen to me. The thing is, I DO like FW Turtles, but it's kinda sad that it's set the standard for what the TMNT should be in the eyes of most people.

I guess he doesn't qualify as African American to cubed because he doesn't say things like "yessa massa", "sup dawg", "yo", "kill whitey" and "shee-it negro!"
