It's not funny or cute by f14ace It's not funny or cute by f14ace
This is in response to a piece of "art" I saw recently involving a "ponified" version of Hurricane Sandy. Really? REALLY? You're seriously gonna go and "ponify" disasters now? It never seems to occur to these people that these disasters destroy lives and property, and they think it's all just a big joke. Making a mockery out of other people's misfortune is not cute or funny. It just makes you look like a massive asshole. I find it particularly offensive since I saw people on Facebook making pony jokes about the tornadoes that hit my state last year. I found nothing remotely amusing about making jokes and laughing about something that killed hundreds of people and devastated entire communities. I guess people with underdeveloped insect brains can't comprehend this.

I'm tired of idiots bringing ponies into everything, especially when it comes to crap like this.

Oh yeah, the person also ponified Hurricane Katrina. :iconfacedeskforeverplz:

I just want to try to say something. If the artist was trying to capture the devastation and sorrow that hurricane Katrina brought then I could understand it. If it was a funny/rude picture, than I do not support it. But I drew a character of mine based off the bombing of Dresden during WWII, and the character was crying. However mine was a wolf character, not a pony. But I truly believe if someone was trying to draw ponies in a way that was respectful to the Hurricane I could understand. They took inspiration from the disaster, and that's fine. But if they were being rude and making some form of parody about it, then that is NOT ok. Just because someone draws MLP doesn't mean the situation is always going to be funny/happy. I have drawn sad and depressing pony pictures. The pony is just a model, whats wrong with that?
I Remember my good friend been dead in Disaster before and i am very sad and angry from that.

Ponifying devastating disasters is crossing a line no one crosses.
Yes, I make dragon sometimes based of of the kind of disaster(example Hurricane Dragon) but not a specific one.
(And that "hurricane dragon" is just as deadly as any hurricane, but hurricanes are nothing to laugh about)
was the artwork suposed to be some kinda sadistic parody or something?

Well, what about disasters that haven't happen? Like a prediction.

It's also like making fun of 9/11, the Holocaust, the Yugoslav wars and the Rwandan Genocide. It's extremely disrespectful.
