What was your post about scandal losing a gladiator/anon hate referring to? I just started watching and I binge watched so I'm almost done already so I thought Id check put the fandom and was confused?
A longtime and beloved Gladiator called mistressoftheblack passed away. Sadly, she took her own life. While I’m sure there were other factors in play that contributed to her state of mind, the infighting within the fandom, particularly from the O-how-bout-NO (aka Olake) and anti-Terry (the ship between KW-TG) factions, led to a pack of Anon Trolls sending her the sadly standard Tumblr messages of “you suck/you’re stupid/your blog is trash and so are you/why don’t you just kill yourself” because they disagreed with her views and…she did.
I desperately wish that she hadn’t. She was a joy within the Arena and on my Dash and I just wish that she…I wish that she was still here with us and with all of her loved ones at peace but she’s not anymore and it hurts.
Sweetheart, a new Gladiator to play with and shoot the shit with is always welcome in my eyes, no matter how they decide to gladiate (as long as they stay in their lane, of course) but please, if you’re joining us on here or on other social media sites, please think before you type. It’s more than okay to have a differing opinion. That’s what makes fandoms and life in general interesting. If we all thought the same, it would be mind-numbing. But…just please keep in mind that behind the screen is a human being who may be going through hell inside and that words truly do hurt.
If it was anon hate how would they know it was Olake fans? Or the so called “anti’s” are there any links to the blogs or are people just looking for someone to blame?
“I love being here with all the Scandal girls! We’re shooting all the time, but we actually really enjoy each other,” says Washington. “It’s rare, so I enjoy it and I value it a lot. It’s for real.”

CRINE. Ok, KW. We get it.
That’s what I’m saying! #Overselling
it’s pathetic and sad really, because you know it’s fake when someone tries to oversell something to you … it’s like saying “buy this, it’s a real gold ring, I swear it’s not fake”, if it wasn’t fake you wouldn’t have to say it … so please stop Kerry
Kind of like when Tony talks about Kerry, right?
I’m still trying to understand why they care so much about what Kerry says, does, wears, whose she’s with, etc. If I don’t like someone, rest assured my time is not spent posting gifs and nasty comments to a internet site for all to see. That kind of stuff is done by people who are typically jealous of said person and if they could trade places they would. They are a pathetic group of cretins.
Guess this is the answer to my post from earlier today about Tony Goldwyn fanatics.
Ha! It is. The day has come full circle.
oh look kerry committed yet another crime by taking a picture with her cast members, how dare she grrrr

My face does this whenever Jake enters any scene on Scandal.
Poor fitz again, he sat and watched the love of his life have sex with another man (supposed friend) (die jake lol)
Meanwhile he is still sleeping with Mellie, has yet to divorce her and slept with Amanda Tanner.
Well this is a bit more refreshing but I wish she’d just say… Fuck you shonda!!
Why would she bite the hand that feeds her?
More like she sucks up to team shonda
More like she’s grateful for her job and the opportunity to showcase her craft. According to some season 3 was shit I don’t share that opinion. However, I’ve watched enough television dramas to kkow that not every season is gonna be 100% all the time. And I’ve found that once a show stops entertaining me I stop watching it because in the end the power is always in my hands.
sounds to me like she’s crediting Shonda for upping her acting game.
Frankly my dear, no one gives a toss about their opinion. They are all suffering from S1 hangover, the show has moved on, 8 million plus people think Shonda did a splendid job, Kerry is happy for the opportunity that Shonda has given her. What they think matters not.
Why you gonna mess up the delusion of power and influence. Didn’t you read the petition against the show. Didn’t you notice how the dialogue got changed, Shonda and ABC apologized…….. oh wait, none of that actually happened. Let me take off these terry glasses. I’m imagining things
I’m so tired of these people trying to force their opinions on others, they don’t understand not everyone feels the way they do and assume someone is being a suck up if they don’t share the same negative opinion
I recall somebody making a comment about how Tony for all his talk of a black lead character still has a lily white woman leading his show, and it was like they’d called the man Hitler or accused him of killing babies or something. Kerry does what she always does, and…
This honestly has to be one of the best, most honest post I’ve seen. People expect all Fitz’s excuses to be swept under the rug and make excuses but when another character is flawed they will hold on to that one thing and never let anyone hear the end of it. Then they have to compare Fitz’s actions to other people to make him look good because on his own he doesn’t have many good qualities. People talk about how the Fitz hate is unreal yet the way they defend him is just as bad and they express the same amount of hate with other characters.
