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).

I have just signed a petition to Ban Yelling At Cats from performing at conventions like Canterlot Gardens, BronyCon, Everfree Northwest, Equestria LA, Las Pegasus Unicon, and any others until his conduct and lyrical content becomes all-age appropriate or he creates unique age appropriate works to perform with.

I believe that YAC should not perform at these conventions because I feel unsafe with him as a guest of honor/confirmed guest, feel disrespected by his anti-LGBT slurs, and/or do not want my children or younger children under my care to possibly stumble upon his performance at a convention. I can tolerate his presence if he begins to use more age appropriate lyrics in his songs, but until then I may not enjoy any convention that allows him to partake in a Guest of Honor role and/or allows him to perform.
