Yelling At Cats is a 'brony' rapper who uses mature themes and serious subject matter in his music. In a recent tweet [https://twitter.com/YellingAtCats/status/251324862948319233], he stated that he could be performing his song 'What Went Wrong,' which contains explicit lyrics including a death threat to another brony who goes by the name of 'Yamino' on some websites. Those lyrics can be found here [warning: aggressive and explicit lyrics, viewer discretion advised]: [https://docs.google.com/document/d/17TBKEf00jVCGRBzfeXDpB9bx7GB9Ln1KBZE4GPCuiec/edit]. In addition to imagery of murdering Yamino, the songs contain strong anti-transgender/anti-gay slurring and mockery against her.

He is set to perform at Canterlot Gardens in Strongsville, Ohio, which takes place September 28th - September 30th, 2012. It may be too late to prevent his performance, but blocking any future performances at My Little Pony conventions by Yelling At Cats will not only improve the overall experience at these conventions, but also improve ticket sales by promoting an all-age experience and showing that hatred and violence are not acceptable values in the brony world (nor in society in general).

      EQLA being a Family Friendly Con, should definitely keep this idiot as far away from it as possible.

      Thank you for letting us know of your concerns. We are currently looking into the issue but at this moment it doesn't appear Kyle Escue aka Yelling At Cats has purchased a badge to Equestria LA nor is he/has he ever been a Guest of Honor....


    4. Petition Closure/Reopen explanations.

      Derek July

      Hello everybody.

      2000+ signatures and still growing, even after I closed the petition for about an hour. That's grand!

      But here's an explanation for why the petition was closed and reopened without warning.

      I was gone the entire weekend for an Air Cadet campout. I didn't want to go because I wanted to stick around to check on my petition and email convention staff, but unfortunately as a senior at the squadron I had to go in order to help supervise the kids.

      When I got back, I had a lot of anonymous hate on my Tumblr inbox. I got scared, closed the petition, and cooled down with a game of Tribes and some hot cocoa. After some thinking, I decided that I should set up this petition to Auto-email, and reopen the petition.

      I'm going to be checking the petition page every once and a while, but I won't be personally emailing the convention staffers anymore nor will I be promoting it. I don't want the petition to take more of a toll on me than it already has.

      Thanks for understanding.

      Thank you all so much for getting us to 1000 signatures! This absolutely amazing. I've emailed the Canterlot Gardens staff this petition, and I'm waiting for a reply. Continue to spread this around! The more exposure the better!

      Yelling At Cats is a horrible person and shouldn't be allowed anywhere near these FAMILY FRIENDLY conventions

      Cats should NOT be representing this fandom.
