|Just look at her, all sunshine and happiness and shit|
You see, before asking yourself why a character is being such a bitch you must ask yourself if a character is being a bitch, and that is clearly not the case here as anyone who has actually watched the show would be able to tell you.
The first thing you need to understand is that this is simply the most recent ploy in an ongoing feud between Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy. Despite sharing the same VA, these ponies have a history of being complete cunts to each other.
It all started way back in ye olden days of season one when Pinkie Pie swooped in and beat Fluttershy at her own game in Swarm of the Century, unintentionally sparking feelings of resentment that would soon become mutual. Pinkie Pie didn't realize she had done anything wrong, of course. She just knew that the parasprites had to be dealt with.
Things came to a head in the season two episode "Putting Your Hoof Down" where Fluttershy, recently having discovered how to release all of her pent up resentment, finally took it all out on her friend.

Now for those of you who didn't watch season three (and lets be honest here, who can blame you?), there was a nice little episode called "Too Many Pinkie Pies."
|Exactly what it says on the tin|
|OH GOD SWEET JESUS WHAT THE FUCK|
|Cheeky little shit|
But let's not forget the other side of the equation: Fluttershy.
That's right, it takes two to tango and while everyone was so busy bitching about Pinkie Pie they somehow failed to notice how much of a glory stealing attention whore everyone's favorite autist was being. After playing coy for the first act, once she had her grubby hooves on Big Mac's role in the quartet her true colors began to shine. It started off subtly, as her own Flutterguy voice simply out performs Big Mac's singing voice. Then she insisted on continuing, taking each and every gig that came along. Next she started improvising, adding her own personal flair to songs and forcing the rest of the group to sing backup to her. Even in the very end of the episode, she's taken the vocal lead in the Ponitones and at that point her plan had finally come to fruition. Within the space of a week she had wormed her way into and taken control of Ponyville's premier acapella sensation (who for some reason have an instrumental backing that comes out of nowhere).
So, lets summarize:
- Fluttershy started this shit
- In the end Fluttershy manipulated her way into living her personal fantasy
- Bitch had it coming
- It's not even the real Pinkie anyway

Additional note: This is hardly the first time Fluttershy has pulled the exact same "bitch" move as Pinkie supposedly did on her. Let's not forget Season 1 in Sonic Rainboom where she busts out this little gem;
Yeah, she's had this coming for a while."Dash, just because you failed the Sonic Rainboom a hundred-thousand times in practice, doesn't mean you won't be able to do it in front of an entire stadium full of impatient, super-critical sports fan ponies"
