Siesta Equestria Theft: The Squeakquel


Hey, at least the chipmunks sequel got SOME people to go see it.
Sorry the followup is a day late folks, but I was too busy sitting on my ass and minding my own business on Sunday. But who the fuck wants that, right? On the bright side, waiting a day gave more time for vendors to submit letters and for us to get a more accurate theft total, so head past the more for more horse shit!

Anti- #LoveWins legislation prompts launch of Church of Celestia


Following the United States Supreme Court decision that rendered Same-sex marriage legal, there has been an outpouring of support for the LGBT community and their newfound rights to wed whomever they see fit. However it comes as no surprise that some conservative governments have begun introducing legislation to prevent same-sex marriage, by requiring all marriages to be performed by ordained clergymen.

This has prompted the long-awaited launch of the First Church of Celestia, which held service for the first time yesterday.

New York Times falls for anti-brony trolls in article about Charleston Shooter, Dylann Roof


Earlier in the week, we told you about the efforts of some trolls to convince people that Dylann Roof, the murderer who massacred 9 people at a church in South Carolina, was a brony. Some of the efforts, it seems, were briefly successful. The New York Times fell for misinformation provided by a teenager in the UK, claiming that Roof was a fan of My Little Pony, which only fueled the anti-bronies efforts to propagate their lies.

This afternoon, it seems, progress was made as the New York Times has issued a retraction of their false information, which had placed an undue black-eye on the fan community.

The Huffington Post has the story.

Episode Damage Report: Autism, But Also a Breakthrough


 

 In light of the newest episode being, in the words of one anon, "exactly what a Spike episode always is," the expected amount of drama emerged today soon after the episode "Princess Spike" finished airing. Strangely enough, it was not from Tumblr demanding answers to why the shitlords at DHX Media are sexist. No, this was a more homegrown drama.

Behind Enemy Lines: Draftcon 2015

That's right, I did it. After my request for 9000 dollars to cover the convention was denied, I carpooled my way down to Minnesota to stay with 5 other guys in a hotel room and attend the fabled Draftcon.

With nothing but a hotel notepad and pen, two Hawaiian shirts, a bottle of rum and two-liter of Coke, a horse mask, and a Rainbow Dash dakimakura (I swear it wasn't mine), I braved the halls of the airport Ramada, teeming with the influx of bronies that tends to follow these gatherings.
This is one of the guys I roomed with. What, you thought I was joking?

Andy Richter is a brony



So this happened on Conan.
Okay.

Anti-brony photoshops #CharlestonShooting images to blame murders on pony fans


Anti-bronies, notorious for being tasteful in every situation, decided today to place the blame of a massacre of 9 people in a church in Charleston South Carolina, on the shoulders of the pony-fan community, by photoshopping the character Rainbow Dash onto images of the suspect's arrest.

The image above which has already begun going viral is a fake, as every original photo does not bear the image of the pony, and no evidence whatsoever has been found to support that the suspect, Dylann Roof, is a fan of the show. We know, because we looked.

Below, we have attached several screencaps of reactions to the faked image, which we are sure will continue.

The image seems to have began on this twitter account, which has since been retweeted hundreds of times.

SDCC Gives Pinkie Pie "The D"


We knew the ponies were Colts fans, but did you know that Pinkie Pie was a Tigers fan too?
Who would have thought that a pink-skinned rapper would feel at home in The D (that's Detroit for you southerners)? Oh wait...Eminem has been doing that for years...

 San Diego Comic Con has begun it's deluge of convention-exclusive merchandise to try and get your grubby hands on, and My Little Pony is no exception.

There are actually 6 variations of the Pinkie Pie doll being released as part of their "Sporties" line, but they can't lie to us, Detroit is where the Party Horse's heart is.

Meghan McCarthy injures her leg, /mlp/ makes her a "get well soon" card


Last night, show-head Meghan McCarthy tweeted a photo of an injury she apparently sustained her leg, which has been described as "absolutely mangled" by some followers. Though details of what caused this injury are as of yet unknown, the loving, caring masses at /mlp/ sprung into action, constructing her a traditional "get well soon" card, and delivering it via Twitter. 

Let's take a look at their hard work.
