Now before anyone accuses me of something, I just want to say right now that this picture is NOT directed at Hasbro, WeLoveFine, iTunes, or Studio B, this is directed at whoever has been sending these nasty emails to those companies complaining about Derpy's recent character portrayal in My Little Pony Friendship is Magic.
To whoever you people are, you really need to calm the hay down.....seriously. I have seen mentally handicapped people many times in my life before, they sit near me and my family every Sunday in church and I've been in high school classes with some in the past. Derpy and looked NOTHING like any of them, therefore, she is not some kind of hateful propaganda designed to taunt them like you think she is. If you want to change her name or have her taken out of the show, you might as well do the same to the other numerous cartoon characters that are clumsy and not very bright.
Now I will not say anything in offense to the companies because we still have yet to hear from them on their say with Derpy's future. Remember, Hasbro didn't come up with Derpy in the show, Studio B did and I highly doubt that they will take her away since they love her and love us bronies and wouldn't want to do that. We cannot be so hateful and rude to these companies guys, this is not their fault!
So that's why I'm asking you all to be as peaceful about this as you can possibly be and not send any complaints to them about "having Derpy's name removed" and junk. We can send them calm emails though telling them to disregard the hatemail they've been getting. I assure you this will all die down in the end. Just remember that this picture is only meant for anyone who is very sensitive about Derpy and is mean to get a point across to them, NOT the companies.
And as for Derpy..........I really hope this whole thing does die soon and she can stay. I absolutely loved how she was in Last Roundup and I can't wait to see more of her! I hope they make an episode someday about Derpy where everyone learns to accept her for who she is and that she's not stupid, retarded, or mental........she's just a bit clumsy, not very bright and misunderstood.

This could be a rumor, but good news has arrived! [link]
EDIT: I made a video version of this: [link]
The pony itself in the picture is beautifully shaded with the black background, dull coloring to make her almost seem to blend into the background. Which is the opposite of what we want done.
Overall the entire message is perfect, unlike Derpy who is wonderful with her flaws. That's life though, flaws are what make us all unique and should not be looked down upon as errors.
If we're to remove Derpy from the show then we too must remove every stereotypical, flawed character there is.
Pinkie for mocking those with personality disorders or ADHD, Twilight for being near Obsessive Compulsive, Dash for portraying the athletic female, Fluttershy for being a caring animal activist, Rarity for priding herself on being beautiful like a model and Applejack for being a 'redneck'.
Back to the picture though, the dark atmosphere and words floating in the abyss around Derpy's head to portray her exact thoughts on the situation are wonderful touches.
As a final thought, having Derpy should be the opposite of offensive. That there is a character that we ALL can relate to is wonderful. Some relate to the mane six and their elements of friendship. Others relate to slow, clumsy, silly Derpy Hooves and must have been thrilled when she became a canon character...and they should not have to watch their favorite Pony fade into the background and disappear...
I loved this, absolutely loved it, the picture, the text, the message all seamless. You balanced it all perfectly and it is extremely impressive and moving.
This message had to be told, and you came out straight for it. I totally agree with you, and even if I didn't, I would still have to rate it 5 stars because it is an amazing piece of balanced art that you have created my friend.
You chose the perfect text for the picture and the perfect colors, I love every single tiny detail about it and always found it unfair about the amount of butthurt she got from people.
Again, good job.
