I don't know why it has to happen to some of our best and brightest, but euclase
has been bullied so much she's taken down all her artworks and deleted her accounts here, at Tumblr and at Deviantart. Bullies strike again. I don't know all the details, but it's enough to know that she's felt the need to leave. If you know her personally and have contact with her, please tell her she's got support, and not just other fans. I've seen Twitter posts from Kim Rhodes, Orlando Jones and Sebastian Roche who are also giving her support, and in fact, Kim wants to get in touch with her. If you can help them connect, please do so.
There's too many assholes in fandom who aren't content unless they are vomiting hate and wank, and God...it needs to STOP! Those of us who appreciate our fandom artists and all others who find themselves on the receiving end of bullies need to step up and do what we can to show them the love and support they need. I mean, if you can't say something nice, then just STFU and go away. We don't need that kind of evil lurking.
Let's support her, ok? As we're posting at Twitter, #WeSupportEuclase.ETA: Note from Euclase...and this will end my part of the discussion.
Everyone, I am fine. I just needed a break. I regret having not come online sooner—before this all got entirely out hand.
I can’t believe the support you all have given me, but please don’t make assumptions without checking the facts: I didn’t delete anything on Tumblr or on Deviantart. My art is definitely still there, just hidden for now. I was not bullied off of the internet, only “tired of being bullied” in general. It’s something I’m used to but something I’m not always equipped to deal with, and occasionally I need a break. Hence the blankout.
I sincerely apologize for any drama this has caused. I never meant it to skyrocket like this. I ask you to please stop spamming my name to celebrities on Twitter, please stop blaming each other, and please don’t make hasty judgments. Fandom is full of so many wonderful people, and I am staggered by your kindness and humbled that I could help you all find a voice in a fight against bullying (and to support your fellow artists!), but I would appreciate it very much if you could do your best not to make things worse when your intentions are so good. I will see you soon.
Thank you again.
