So, even though the VMA’s were 3 days ago, I’ve still been seeing people from the 5sos fam sending hate to Harmonizers because Fifth Harmony won the Artist to Watch award (I have also gotten hate on this blog and my fifth harmony blog). Yes, I get that you wanted 5sos to win but you have no business saying that the awards were rigged, because if that were the case 5sos didn’t deserve to win the Best Lyric category either. Fifth Harmony won because their fans are some of the most dedicated fans that I have seen. And for them to be a smaller fandom and STILL beat 5sos is a big achievement. I’ve also seen people call them ‘talentless’, ‘shitty’, and ‘flops’ among other insults. The pictures above show that when Fifth Harmony performed, the VMAs had the most viewers, while 5sos had the least people tune in when they performed. Don’t insult them when far many more people tuned in to watch Fifth Harmony, and Fifth Harmony aren’t even ‘on the radar according to some of you. Now on to sexism. Many of you have commented on Fifth Harmony’s ‘Reflection’ album art calling them sluts, whores, gross and that they ‘should cover up more’ and yet you turn around to drool over 5sos when they are half naked. (This applies to ever girl group and female artist who have dealt with double standards btw). Now don’t get me wrong, I love 5sos. I mean I wouldn’t run a blog dedicated to them if that weren’t the case. But to go out of your way and insult Fifth Harmony based on their clothes and say that awards shows are rigged because ‘who the hell are they?’ is way out of line. I will repeat again that I love 5sos (and Fifth Harmony), but please do not slut shame (they literally had to ban comments on their ‘Bo$$’ music video because of the degrading and slut shaming comments), call them talentless, etc just because 5sos didn’t win one award.
