What certain people in fandom do is disgusting, but if what people who saw the leaks says is true, people have rights to be angry, and people like Jim Miller, who are guilty of what people are acuseing them of, should have known better before writting the last 4 episodes as they did.
Still, nothing can excuse taking your anger too far, and death threats is definately too far.
I’m not victim blameing. I’m disgusted by morons who send phisical threats to people working on the show. Besides being childish, it’s also heavily illegal and doesn’t put you in a good light.
On the other hand, I understand people who are upset (but keep thier criticizm fair and civil) because Jim Miller and other people working on the show SHOULD HAVE KNOWN what kind of ending can get people angry. When you write a story, you have to understand what will be the result of your action. They should understand beforehand, that the choice they make will be "divideing" at best. Acting suprised that "people didn’t like us essentially taking all the worst cliches for the final season" puts them in the bad light.
Despite the fact that I have been monitoring threads for 2 hours solid now, there are actually not that many people outright complaining about the ending. It’s more people complaining about the early releases and about the harassment of the staff.
