iTunes finally uploaded the last round up, but derpy is no longer named, her eyes never Derp and her voice is different.
I am very very disappointed in hasbro and studio six, after what we all thought they were leaving derpy untouched.
Check out the eqd post including a vid of her 'revised' scene.

And the cries of ten thousand men resonated through the canyon at the haunting discovery and they asked, "why?"

In a way, I understand why majority of fans are upset but blaming, pointing fingers and throwing hate around is not the way to do this. You're forgetting your own motto "Love and Tolerance". You bronies are one of inspiration and our greatest achievement. Don't sully your name by spreading Hate and intolerance. Remember, Tolerance is not the same as acceptance. If you are upset with something, display it in a more positive way. You'll get your message across much better than lashing it out with hate. Show some respect. Show some humility.

Don't worry guys, it's just that one episode, I recall someone mentioning that the change wasn't permanent, and besides, it's iTunes you should point fingers at, if you want to point fingers at all.

iTunes felt the odd need to 'censor' the Derpy scene because they thought it would be a bit offensive, so, if Hasbro wanted The Last Roundup on iTunes, they had to do what iTunes wanted.

I'm pretty sure the aired version of any episode will have Derpy as normal, but on iTunes it would only be a little different if required.

Despite my utter neutrality on the subject, I really couldn't help but notice all the heat brewing from it.

I'm basically on the Topsy Kretts side of the fence here. This just seems like a bunch of whining going nowhere. I can understand why people would be upset, but I'm utterly neutral on it.

This ^ In my opinion though, she should have kept the derp eyes and name. But have the new voice, the old voice was...nice but i prefer the new one.

And this whole '#SAVEDERPY' thing is getting out of hand *cough* hoof sorry.

I think they should have kept the eyes, maybe the name. But I agree about the voice.

Same here. She really makes it more of an understandable change. And once you think about it the way she does, it makes SO much more sense as to why they would have found it offensive. Plus I felt bad for the girl, receiving all that unnecessary hate.

After I heard the voice change, I like the voice, but does it truely fit the character?
If the name needs to be changed, then change it. I do not mind the name Ditzy either.
And Amy's response was a wonderful read and perspective on it.

So on one hand, they "killed her". But I think it kinda was for the best... as long as she airs in some episodes :)

Well according to Tabitha St. Germain, she thought the character was a stallion...

I know this is a fairly old story, but I too was quite sad to hear about the loss of a beloved character and want to share my two cents.

I wish that we could have had someone like our crack legal team, who are busy preparing to appeal any decision that could disrupt the Brazilian farming industry’s royalty collection system (“POD System”) for Roundup Ready soybeans, and appeal any action that could undermine the rights of patent holders to collect royalties for their patented inventions.

The POD system allows the remaining growers to pay the royalty when they deliver grain, including those that choose to save their seed from one season to the next. The POD system has helped spur new investments in the Brazilian soybean industry, and has ensured that the value created by new products was shared with growers, seed companies, grain elevators, and exporters. This is similar to Derpy's role in spurring on the fan community and bridging the gap between the artists at Studio B and the fans of this amazing cartoon.

With that kind of tenacity, we probably would still have our beloved, and somewhat silly horse today. :no:

Sorry, but my sustainability class has killed any emotion for Monsanto. Even if said user was banned.
