The feud between fandoms escalated yesterday, as a Furry Convention in Illinois was the target of a Chlorine gas attack at a local Hotel. Police are investigating and searching for a culprit in the incident, which left 19 furries in need of medical attention. Horse News intelligence indicates that the furries were not the actual target, and that the true war had only just begun.
"You attacked the wrong convention!" one /pol/ user proclaimed, from his newly broken board. Evidently an assassination attempt against bronies, this attack was actually carried out by fandoms centralized on the social-justice site "tumblr".
The Sisterhood of HAMASS (Homestuck And Minecrafters Against Special Snowflakes) has taken responsibility for the attack, admitting that they "couldn't tell the difference between bronies and furries" adding however that they don't regret the mistake, as the furries were next on their alphabetical hitlist.
"First the Bronies...Then the Furries...then the Whovians..."
Why this convention though? Apparently, the target was chosen due merely to its proximity to the terrorist group's base of operations - Schaumburg Illinois - in the smoldering ruins of the former site of Dashcon. Rosemont, it seems is a short 30 minute drive away.
Thousands of furries were evacuated from the hotel, and sent to seek shelter at another convention center, which was hosting a dog show across the street. Reportedly, very few noticed any difference.
At press time, the allied forces of "FUCKER" (Fandoms United Under Convention Killings Evoke Retaliation) has sent griefers into HAMASS's servers to destroy all their bases, and delete all of their fanfiction in response to the attacks.
