Sometimes, fandom for a specific IP becomes a little too intense. Although the creators always appreciate the passion, the vitriol of disagreeing with a particular casting aimed explicitly at female actors and their appearance is just plain disgusting. Most times, it is a small, loud, ignorant community of fans that are just mad that the representation they will see of their favorite character isn't what they are used to seeing — when the reality is that it doesn't affect the plot or change the story whatsoever.
This ignorance drives these people to bash actors once they hear of casting news without any merit, as if they'd like someone to troll them on Instagram or Facebook anytime they get a job somewhere based on their appearance. It's shameful but, unfortunately, a part of the internet community. Thankfully, actors have a majority of fans that support and are eager to see their work, not that it still doesn't hurt to see the hateful comments, but I'd like to think the many positive voices outweigh the negative.
