Over the weekend one of the most gripping scenes has after taking place in the Cosplay community and has opened the can of worms on one of the biggest issues to hit conventions.
Recently a cosplayer known as Bella Sparkles has recently gotten a message from a troll of a congoer who stated she is fat and needs to exercise. Afterwards the berated con goer shared a meme out of the cosplayers picture stating When you eat the whole Suicide Squad on his personal and a deadpool fan page
And of course this is horrendous behavior and should never be respected. But what happened was a mixture of the greatest moments of Support and vileness as both sides of body positive and Body fitness took sides fueling each others hatred.
Word had spread that death threats were sent to the troll’s account.
And for the first time in years I have been speechless on the actions of the Convention community.
does negative actions and comments deserve the same level of vileness in return ? Or have some of us been consumed by the same mob mentality that took place during the days of the Mc Carthy Trials ?
While I will stand with the Bella Sparkles she has the right to cosplay anyone she wishes to be. I will not stand with the side sending death threats to the troll he does not need that level of fame or infamy.
We should as a community fight negatives of the world and our community not with pitch forks and fire but with contempt and kindness.
