Tumblr user notices fire, tells no one by Liki Weaks
This weekend, tumblr user and supposed brony convention vendor "FuckBroniesForReal" made a post regarding an incident that happened at a recent ill-fated convention, involving an electrical fire.
FBFR, who is a vigilant and responsible adult, noticed a fire breaking out in a convention hall, which according to her, lasted several hours, and grew in intensity with every passing moment. She decided not to tell anyone about this enormous safety risk and instead waited until after the convention was over (and reportedly burned to the ground) to tell people about the danger.
The vendor, using all of her keen intellect and rationality, took to tumblr to inform people of how awful the brony fandom is, citing the supposed blazing inferno as an indication of how dangerous every brony activity is to the public.
Many people have questioned her logic of not calling the fire department or even hotel security to inform them of what would be a huge issue of concern, as both groups are tasked with public safety, but instead to just sort of "watch the fire and wait".
Other attendees, who were in the same convention, claim to have never even noticed the fire, which according to the tumblr user was so hot and dangerous that you could roast marshmallows down the hall from it, and many claim that no such fire happened. Most readers agreed that the most responsible thing to do would be to tell somebody about the fire, or at least try to stop it themselves using one of the numerous tools available to everyone (including fire extinguishers) instead of just watching everything burn and complaining later. "Children could have gotten hurt" is a popular sentiment. Other internet users ask for pictures of the fire, as surely a lightsource would be noticed even just in the background of the photos taken by hundreds of cameras at the convention.
The tumblr user responded to these suggestions by claiming that everyone who doesn't believe her story at face value is a "blaze apologist" or is a supporter of "fire culture", or are even "arsonists themselves" who have no sympathy for burn victims.
The tumblr has since been deleted.
Convention staff assure us that had any such enormous security risk been brought to their attention it would have been dealt with immediately, but to their knowledge, no part of the convention space was destroyed by a raging fire.
