Hello everyone, I've recently come upon a facebook page called M. Night should be hanged for treason against the Avatar fan base. and on this page's wall I discovered one of the group's favorite games "yay or nay?" targeting cosplayers and their resemblance to the character they're dressed as. I made a video, encouraging others to report the page for harassment and they found my video and proceeded to attack my friends and myself online. Lovely thing to come home to after a long day at school and work, eh? I have since made another, shorter, <a href="youtu.be/xP5WtWNZXaY"]video that is more specific on w>y this is an issue.

Again, I am encouraging everyone who agrees with me to report that facebook page. They're stealing our images, posting them without permission, and encouraging people to mock us on things we can't help as humans.

I took a look. Perhaps Facebook sent them a warning? They seemed to have calmed down on cosplay attacks.

Omigosh that's horrible! I can't believe they call themselves fans of Avatar and they can't even appreciate and respect the efforts of their fellow fans!
I suppose every group has them, but really. Some of those comments on your video were awfully mean! -_-
I wish you a lot of luck in your efforts! :<

Not to mention all the artwork they are reposting without permission.

I looked it up and you were right.
One of the cosplayers they were targeting actually happened to be my friend.
I absolutely reported them!

Made a journal and contacted a few of the artists/cosplayers I recognized so they can report them too, if they wanted :3 Thanks for the heads up, Kim!
