First, I’m not you Honey.
Second, why are you coming to my inbox to say this since I rarely talk about either Bellamy or Mellie ?
Third, Bellamy and Mellie are a fan favorites ? let me laugh.
to be a fan favorite you must be used to promote the show and all we see promoting the show is Olitz, Olitz and more Olitz .. and please don’t look to the US only, I see my french TL every Tuesday and the general comment is “I hope Mellie dies”.
Fourth, you are completely delusional if you think that Bellamy or Mellie are essential to Scandal, Olivia and Fitz are the only two characters that make this show what it is, everyone is replacable.
and Finally, it seems you BY fans really thought she was a star when she won a Critics Choice which is the most useless award ever, call me when she wins a Critics Assiciation Award or better yet when she gets an Emmy nomination.
one last thing, you pressed 3 or 4 BY and Mellie fans need to stay away from our inboxes, I don’t see Olitz fans invading your inboxes … and it’s clear you’re the same person who was bitching in industrygolddish inbox too.
I think everyone should just stop giving interviews cause they are tapping on my last nerve. Blaming social media is the go to response nowadays, until they want something. We are not to blame for you being embarrassed of your significant other. Those are personal problems we can’t help you with. Social media saved that show, but SR wants to talk about how twitter doesn’t really matter? Ok. I wish I would tweet another Scandal hashtag.
I sure won’t.
I forgot her words exactly but she said something about high school….like really?! I get it that sometimes fans can go overboard but twitter made scandal sorrynotsorry.
Can someone please get me the exact quote? Please
Kerry: I don’t weigh myself because there’s never a good answer on the scale. For me reading comments is the same way. It’s brain clutter. But it is hard, in social media you feel like you’re a community. People in social media can be very mean. Some of our cast members have struggled with it a lot. Sometimes people come to social media to find a community, a sense of belonging, a place where they feel like they can empower themselves. Often that can be a positive place. Sometimes it’s done in really negative ways by building community through judgment and criticism and a holier than thou attitude. I have to protect myself from that because it’s sort of high school. As much as I want to be part of that community, I don’t look to the social media community to affirm my work. Kerry Washington
Thank you got the direct quote. Now there is dome thing to react to. May I also ask where this was and what question prompted/led yo this response, or what the discussion was that prompted it?
I bet the cast mates struggling with this have the initials SF and BY, right ? Especially Sf ?
^^^May they continue to struggle. Lol.
We want BY & SF to struggle a lot with social media reactions triggered by their stupid and bigoted words and actions….LOL….They only have themselves to blame for that….
Interesting that she added the words “holier than thou.” Wonder if that is a general or specific comment. Rare is the moment when KW makes an off-the-cuff comment. I would only ever speak for myself, but I have absolutely zero regrets over anything critical I have said about her deserving-of-scorn cast mates BY or FFF or her show creator, the awful SR—who is intent on using BY and FFF to attempt to change the premise of the show and ruin and/or limit the once-great character of Olivia Pope. I also have no regrets about criticizing the romanticization of physical/domestic abuse on the show by pretending that Joke and Liv could have any other relationship other than abuser and victim. You write dangerous, irresponsible bs like that, then you can expect to receive disgust from those whom it offends. Also interesting is that many fans critical of the behavior of BY and FFF are hard-core Liv and Olitz fans, the latter of whom Shonda thinks are horrible people rooting for an extramarital affair and not just fans of terrific acting, off-the-charts chemistry, and a true love story between characters who are soulmates. Again, as many have said, you use social media to sell your show — you are going to get opinions about all involved — especially those who try to promote themselves and denigrate the lead character or slight the lead actress (BY) or those who are just bitter, talentless, fan-baiting, frivolous-lawsuit-filing crybabies (FFF). I wouldn’t mind if KW employed a IDTAMJDCM policy - As in I don’t talk about my jealous, delusional cast mates. But just like us, she is free to use her voice for whatever and whomever she wants.
Excellent comment Jules!…You summed it up perfectly! 👍👋
Funny that she commented on her “poor” cast mates and their “hurt” feelings / white tears, but didn’t think to mention the very vocal outrage and disgust expressed by the fans ON social media ON HER behalf at the utter decimation and degradation of Olivia…..or did she “miss” THOSE posts?? SMH…
Bold plus fuck the poor cast what Foley? Malina? BY? Y’all remember when Foley used to continue prodding fans on twitter like why did he do that? As a professional you just keep mum and never provoke fans same goes to Malina the one lined cast member!!
Twitter Social Media works both ways. They say they don’t need fans r us tweeting then we don’t. We don’t vote anything Scandal. They want to take digs at us as fake fans. The we do it back. Shonda says she doesn’t need Twitter but then why was everything abt a hash tag r breaking Twitter.
