Part of me thinks she actually wants the hate. At least then she could say people were paying attention to her. 

I just clicked on her twitter and she tweeted about SA sneezing during filming the day after it happened and I thought, that's a really odd thing to randomly tweet about 24 hours later. She's definitely desperate for some attention. Damn, Olicity baby really took the shine off her big throat slash moment I guess? 😬😂

Maybe she was expecting Dinah’s throat slash to get more attention than it did has and thinks the lack of attention is due to haters hating on her personally rather than fans just being more excited about Mia and the Olicity Baby reveals in the episode.

I also wonder if she’s a little bit annoyed that Kat, Ben and Joseph have been so warmly embraced by fandom and she’s struggled to achieve the same thing.

She's just plain silly if she didn't predict that everyone was going to go mental after the Olicitot reveal.

She's not popular but she's plastered all over the show this season. She should be content with that and accept she's never going to be a thing. 

This just makes her look even more like a passive aggressive snake.

Well we know Rick is bitter that he's not beloved like Oliver or treating like a main so it wouldn't surprise me if Juliana is resentful. Sorry bae 🤷‍♀️

There does seem to be some confusion from some of the cast why their super cool canon characters aren't loved more.  Makes me think they got caught up in the hype when of COURSE the character that has brought the most buzz apart from Oliver (and sometimes more) is where the audience's focus is going to be, not some recent addition.  It's not like anyone is fawning over Emiko or Adult Zoe either.

The one thing fans from both sides seem to agree on is their dislike of DD. I know a lot of people were giddy at her potentially losing her cry. Some people because they just can't stand her (i'm guilty of it & it looks stupid af), and other because they think this is the pathway for E2 LL to become BC again. Don't get me wrong there are fans that like her, but more seem apathetic/annoyed by her character. Even though her mentions were tame, other than those tweets about LL becoming BC now, I bet she vanity searches stuff and that's what she's reacting to.

I can actually sort of understand that it would be kind of frustrating to be on a show with such a passionate fandom and your reception is at best mostly crickets but tweets like that are not going to help especially when others have received actual threats.

Yeah maybe Emily should tell her story about the time the network personally called her because they were worried about the level of death threats she was receiving.

She wouldn't listen to Emily anyway. As JH is a fan and follower of Marc G.

If I didn't know better I would think someone was making this sh*t up to slander them.

Oh the embarrassment. 

I would say just grow up and deal with it but I don't think anyone even cares enough to give them hate anymore so this is just super cringe.

I’m beginning to wonder if they can’t separate the dislike for their character from dislike of them personally. I dislike Dinah a lot and I wouldn’t be at all unhappy if she moved away from Star City but I don’t have any particular feelings about JH, one way or another. 

KA, on the other hand, has been awful as both Dragon and as a real life person. He came into the show and has been mostly unpleasant to fandom from day one. I’m assuming he did it for reasons but I blocked him and his personal hashtag on Twitter awhile ago and moved on.

JH comes off as super passive aggressive imo. She seemed nice at first and then got really PA when her character didn't make a splash. 

I'm pretty sure both sides of fandom are still fighting over the Olicitot or celebrating the Olicitot but she can keep imagining things I guess.  

KA is just peculiar and nuts.

Wait. what? For real? She was getting threats because of her character on a tv show? I didn't know that! Do we think that maybe also led to her being uncomfortable at cons? I mean I would be.

 I just. I don't understand people. I mean I loathed Lana Lang on Smallville more than was probably healthy but I wished no ill will on KK.  People just really are unhinged.

Yep Emily mentioned during a con in Paris I think after season 3 during the S3-s4 hiatus that the network had called her because they were worried about threats she'd been receiving online and from memory as she told the story had asked her if she wanted them to pursue anything but Emily wasn't aware of them until the network called her and basically said she wasnt going to give them any attention.

I do remember one fan coming after Emily so hard that members of the cast like John Barrowmen publicly took a stand against them either in season 3 or 4. And there were a lot of ugly twitter accounts who went after Emily during the season 3 season 4 time.

A lot of ugly stuff about her appearance, her sexual orientation, bordering on violent abusive  language, mentions of rape and I even recall seeing an account tweet knife emojis. I think a lot of those accounts though were quickly reported and suspended by Twitter which is good. 

I haven't noticed much recently mainly because I think the people who use to do it now try to falsely claim Olicity fans send death threats to Katie and Cassandra, which I've yet to see evidence of (I've seen nasty stuff but not violent and aggressive stuff), so I think they try to put on a good face and so they can claim the "moral high ground".
