Breaking News: The "Ask Princess Molestia" Tumblr is GONE. (UPDATES)



As of 3:00 EST, the infamous MLP Fan-Tumblr, and [possible] target of  Hasbro Social Justice Warriors "Ask Princess Molestia" is gone. The url http://askprincessmolestia.tumblr.com/ returns a notification, that there is nothing to find. Artist John Joseco has yet to be reached for comment. Comments below. Stay tuned for updates.






Seen here is the last posting made on the tumblr, featuring Luna hitting a large unknown button.
Anons speculate this was a reference to the "Delete Tumblr" button.

"Ask Princess Molestia" has recently been the target of a campaign known as "Down With Molestia", spearheaded by one April Davis, better known by her twitter and tumblr alias as "Pinkie Pony", who notoriously has a vendetta against bronies, as she has stated many times in her postings.

She has recently become aware of the developments.

Update: It's DEAD DEAD.

From John Joseco's other tumblr:

One and done
No it’s not coming back. I’m free from it. Thanks to everyone who enjoyed it. It was a fun ride.
I have The Lounge to finish and a fantasy comic to draw now.  Already been working on it and it will launch around spring. It’s gonna be a doozy!

 RIP Princess Molestia


Luna pressed the "Call Hasbro" button too many times.

But who knows, maybe something better is yet to come.


BREAKING NEWS UPDATE
CONFIRMED LEAKED JJ CHAT CONFIRMS HASBRO IS RESPONSIBLE 
 The following transcript is true. This will spell dire consequences for future tumblr's.



Recent horse news interview confirmed that hasbro removed the blog.  It just so happened that JJ was closing the blog at the same times...

    1. Yeah, let me say this... It thoroughly annoys me to no end that they take down PMolly, who is a joke or gag character and make a canon serial killer that you might know as Slendermane.

    2. Hey, stupid ass. You ever heard of parody and FAIR USE laws which Hasbro is clearly breaking which is a Class C felony? Add to the fact that Hasbro is engaging in racketeering which is also a crime. Check your privilege, dirtbag.

      Delete
    3. I'm with the faggot anon. This is Fair Use by the latter. None of the characters have completely matching names, the art is completely different, the name My Little Pony does not appear anywhere, The storyline is completely different, it's like disney suing deadmau5 because his mask resembles mickey mouse.

      Delete
    4. You know, nothing is ever gonna change with all of you complaining. If any of you have a real problem, I suggest talking to a lawyer or something.

      I mean, if somebody doesn't do something, Hasbro is just gonna keep on kicking our shit in again and again and again. One person could give rise to others and so on, so I highly suggest someone does something other than complaining.

      Maybe a bunch of people can pool a bunch of money into a bunch of lawyers to kick Hasbro's shit in. Maybe we could pool some money in to buy wrights to My Little Pony so we can make stuff like this in peace. I don't know much about laws and such, considering i'm rather young, but doing something is better than doing nothing, yes?

    5. People really need to get a grip here.

      Fair use can be extremely legally complicated. Parody is clearly protected, but the question is, when is something actually a parody, and when is it just an attempt at making something new out of something which already exists? Moreover, it is more complicated than that, as trademark law also gets involved in some cases.

      The problem with Ask Princess Molestia is that it is not really a cut-and-dried parody. Something like Cupcakes is very clearly protected, as is something like, say, Luna and Celestia and the budget crisis or whatever it was called. Friendship is Manly as a one-shot is less cut-and-dried, but still wouldn't be something I would litigate as a company.

      But something like Ask Princess Molestia kind of rides a line that is very dangerous. It had Trixie, Twilight, Celestia, and Luna all over the place, and merely calling Celestia Molestia is not enough to protect you legally, especially given the other characters' names were unchanged. Moreover, while parts of it were clearly parody, other parts of it were much less clearly so, and it sort of danced the line.

      Would he win a lawsuit over it? I don't know. But I do think it isn't worth it to him to fight a lawsuit over it.

      Now, there are other things that have been taken down which are much more cut-and-dried - Fighting is Magic was obviously infringing, for instance, and there's no way they'd win that lawsuit.

      Also "buy rights to MLP" is hilarious. Yeah, you could do that. That would cost, I would guess, at least nine digits, possibly ten, depending on how much they make from it, as well as how integral it is to their business model (at this point? Very).

      Delete
    6. Yes, you could attempt to make a case that Hasbro is violating fair use laws. Of course, this would be a rather flimsy case, considering the tumblr used mlp characters and setting. But forget about that. Assume Hasbro was in clear violation of fair use laws. How would you proceed? Sure, you could "sue their ass," but in all honesty, you would lose that case. The fact of. The matter is that America's court system is professionally biased. One guy going up against a huge corporation such as Hasbro, who undoubtedly possesses a whole team of high value lawyers? You wouldnt stand a chance. And so if it really is true that Hasbro took the blog down, there's not much anyone could do about it.

    1. Not a chance, this is just going to be another bump in the fandom, it happens all the time. We're so controversial people forget we're people too. i myself wind up having WAY too many conversations about bronyism among my friends, they freaking bring it all the time and claim i'm the one who does it. anyways we're fine for now. we fought for derpy and won. among other things like lauren leaving. i like to think we're a pretty strong fandom, like furries, though i wish people didn't give them a bad rap either, our fandoms are similar to an extent, i mean one of my friends is a furry and one of his friends i discovered recently is a brony and a furry too. which is cool i think.

      as i was saying with season 4 and all the pony memes to come, not to mention season 5 confirmed :D and our ever growing popularity some how i think we'll be fine. i wish our fandom was stronger in europe i mean i'm from ireland and "bronies of ireland" only has like 1000 likes on facebook and that's it, and they're all from dublin, i sure as plot ain't gonna go all the way to dublin (3 hour train journey) for a meet up that'll only last half a day. i'd set up a brony meet up in my hometown, but i don't even think there are bronies here! heck who knows what could happen? i could organise a meet up around town and loads of bronies could show up or no one...

  18. why would hasbro even do that? i thought the guys working on mlp liked us and thought we were cool it doesn't make any sense since they make way more profit off of bronies than they do little girls because bronies have jobs and more money. why would they attack such a big part of the fandom like princess molestia? i mean this can't be entirely right considering they confirmed Derpy for the next episode. maybe there's some one on the team at hasbro who has a grudge against bronies? or it was it probably just that pinkiepony bitch. just from what i read on this article i don't like the sound of her for hating molestia.

    1. Because you aren't the part of the fandom that matters, at all.

      My little girls are and you've created a toxic, terrifying, unsafe environment for CHILDREN. Hasbro is addressing the concerns of parents like myself who are so fucking sick of everything related to this child's show getting drenched in borny wet dreams.

    3. Hey, "parent"
      Fact of the matter is, your kids were gonna see it eventually. There was no avoiding it.
      In part of the fact that you let your kids on the internet, which is full of equal parts good stuff and bad stuff, means that you have nobody to be mad at but yourself.

      Also, You. Can't. Protect. Kids. From. This. Stuff.

      Delete
    4. First off, I'm pretty sure that the person who is complaining is not a parent, they're someone pretending to be a parent. Of course, Poe's Law applies, but yeah.

      Secondly, it was Hasbro's lawyers, who aren't working on the show at all; they deal with legal issues.

      Thirdly, because it became too visible and they felt that it threatened their trademarks and possibly was an infringement of their copyrights as well.

      They aren't going to run around suing random fanartists, but he was pretty high profile.

  19. My Horse Pussy song was flagged as "inappropriate" and taken down earlier today, giving me a strike on my account. I assumed it was just some butthurt faggot who flagged it, but when trying to re upload it, it was somehow flagged again immediately. I don't even know how that's possible unless Hasbro is responsible somehow. So we can add me to the list of casualties.

  21. I can see Hasbro trying to take it down--they have to protect their brand, and APM was a toxic association for them. Imagine the parents who would freak out if they saw what "tumblr" had done to the x,show their child watched.

    The thing is, though, that APM was parody. It is easily defensible from the exact same stance as to why Hasbro would want it taken down.

    "So, sir, you are telling me that one of your biggest toylines features a character named Molestia, or Molly, which drinks, swears, and sexually coerces her sister, enemies, student and royal guard, and you own a copyright on this character? No? Are you sure?"

    2. First off, trademark law is probably far more likely to be responsible than copyright law.

      Secondly, it isn't as clear-cut as you seem to think it is. That isn't to say that he couldn't win a lawsuit over it - he very likely could - but that it is probably not worth it to him to fight over it in court.

  42. Okay, I just wanna point out that to all the people complaining about this, there was a very serious point to why it was taken down:

    MOLESTIA was making jokes about rape and molestation. I'm pretty sure THAT is REASON ALONE (NOT because it was a parody or a Brony parody site) to take down something that like.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Anyone who gets upset over people making rape or molestation jokes should probably go hang themselves.

      Seriously, I get that they aren't everyone's thing - I never thought all that much of Princess Molestia personally, as I thought a lot of it wasn't very funny - but there's nothing wrong about making jokes about absolutely anything. Rape, molestation, genocide, dead babies, suicide bombers... everything has some real potential for comedy in it.

      Now, tumblr is free to take down what it wants, but given it has porn on it, rape jokes are hardly out of bounds or degrade the face of the service.

      Hasbro doesn't actually care what it is so much as how prominent it is and how much it is likely to create confusion/cause IP issues/whatever.

      And the idea that any subject matter is unacceptable to discuss anywhere is inherently a horrible, evil person. There aren't any exceptions to it, because it flies in the face of freedom of speech. Everything should have somewhere to be said that can be shared with the world. Even horrible things like racism, misandry, misogyny, and other forms of bigotry.

      Making rape and molestation jokes is small fries.

      Delete
    2. No. No. No.

      Rape and molestation are not funny. They are not jokes. They ruin people's lives. They cause physical, emotional, and mental suffering in victims that they can never fully escape.

      When you make rape jokes you are helping to promote a culture that makes abusers feel like their actions are normal, justified, or even amusing. You are taking a crime that ruins the lives of 25% of women and laughing at it like it were no big deal.

      Stop.

    3. Women arent the only ones that get raped dumbass...moral fag I got raped in jail by my cell mate and I enjoyed it!!!

    4. I know women aren't the only ones who get raped??????? I just literally don't know any specific statistics about male rapes so I decided to not make stuff up.

      And thanks for sharing though I'm not sure what your point was

      Delete
    5. The point was to make you realize that mentioning a statistic in a fashion that presents itself as a one-sided statement lends itself to the idea of you (the poster) being ignorant to the whole of the situation. In other words, the replying person assumed you were being a double-standard-wielding blatherer talking about how woman are the only ones hurt by those jokes. Furthermore, if you are going to say that anything that ruins someone's life is a no-go for humor, then rape and molestation are not the only things to look at. There are many more aspects of comedy that are based off of things that have ruined peoples' lives, and they get the same look as those kinds of jokes. They're still told, and some people still laugh about it. They're funny to some, not to all-get over it and deal with it as you will.

      Furthermore, you are NOT ALWAYS promoting a culture of something simply by telling a joke based off of some idea somehow related to it. The same applies to laughing to a joke of the sort. If I make a joke about racism, it doesn't necessarily mean I'm a racist. If I make a joke about someone being hurt (comedic violence), it doesn't mean I promote violent activity. That is faulty logic and you know it-if you don't, then you need to take a step back and reconsider what you're thinking and saying until you can comprehend what it implies.

      The implication that us laughing at it somehow normalizes the rapists and molesters is absurd and I would like to hear a bit of evidence on how we're somehow actually promoting this 'rape culture' you speak of. Are there any rapists that have spoken out and said 'Rape is just so funny, everyone's laughing at it, so it's normal, right?' The closest you'll get to it is the religious sorts blathering about how rape isn't real and how a woman will somehow force out a pregnancy if it was unwanted. That happens to be an idea unrelated to rape-based humor as it lies within religious dogma.

      tl;dr: Rape doesn't have to be funny to you to be funny; making rape jokes does not mean someone promotes rape; I want the person who made that statement to give evidence that rape-humor has in some way been the cause of a 'rape culture.'

      Delete
    6. To clarify, whilst I do recognize those other two types of jokes have indeed sparked actions based on them, racism is still not accepted any more than it would be without the jokes. The people that promote it would still promote it and the people that are against it are still against it. They'd find different ways to 'justify' racist actions even without the humor. Comedic violence turning into the form of actual violence is widely-spoken of, but any serious cases of it happening are usually in controlled situations or perpetrated by people that aren't right in the head. I'm not going to go so far as to assume it as fact, but I highly doubt they really think that their actions are 'acceptable' or 'unacceptable' so much so as they simply think it is humorous.

      Rapists aren't in it for the humor, and any sign of them finding 'normalization' usually comes from other sources than comedy as far as I've understood it. As far as I've heard about these situations, if the rapist thinks its okay, it's usually because they don't see it as rape. They justify it as some form of consensual sex in a different manner. Of the ones I've heard that know and own up to their crimes, I don't think I've ever heard one come out and say it was because of rape-humor, nor have I ever heard of any hints of it.
