mildly annoyed

So, Newsroom fandom went straight crazy Sunday night because Nina, this gossip columnist who hacked MacKenzie's phone and stole a voicemail Will left her, reveals the content of the message (that he never stopped loving MacKenzie) and says she wouldn't go out with Will because of this. Well, at the end of the episode she and Will fuck and Nina lies to Mac about the voicemail and doesn't reveal Will is in love with her. Okay. Cool.

Except fandom goes batshit that Will DARE sleep with anyone but MacKenzie even though Mac cheated on him and he's never moved on. Slut shaming Nina, glossing over Mac, calling Will an asshole, etc. Vitriolic.

Callie, Ruth and I were literally the only sane ones. NOW the ones who were the worst about going batshit are all "Well, we should be kinder and not fight, I don't think Nina is that bad," like it was their idea to begin with.


It's possible I'm focusing on this so I don't think about my dad today.
