Reposted from another post on this subject: From what I can tell, most of the Brony community supports Derped-up Derpy. Outside the Bronies, there has already been counter-complaints by parents of autistic children that editing the episode to be less 'retarded' seeming is offensive because it sends the message that being autistic is bad and not allowed. So, we will see.

Personally, I loved the episode and wasn't offended by Derpy's portrayal. I was surprised that they chose to use the name "Derpy" for her, pretty much for the possibility of the reasons above. I've seen the new version and it seems... off. I mean, I kinda like the new voice, but I didn't like that they uncrossed her eyes, and Dash's line omitting her name kinda screws with the dialog flow. They should have kept her name Ditzy Doo because that only suggests that she's absent minded and kinda dumb, but not that there's any particular reason for it.

Awwwwww that is so sad. Only because of that some people have a problem with the word derpy in the context of the looking of this really cute pony they do change things on it and the name? That´s one thing I never will understand.

This grey pony, Derpy Hooves, was created as a joke and put in the first episode of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic behind another pony as a personal joke of an animator.  Before the episode was aired the pony in front of Derpy was moved without catching Derpy's expression.  When the episode was aired fans went crazy about the hilarious expression on the pony and named her.  The staff got wind of the fan base, and proceeded to put Derpy in future episodes with "derped" eyes as a "where's Waldo" character.  During the episode The Last Round Up, Derpy was gives a speaking role and was acknowledged by name having the expected "derpy" personality.  Motherfuckinggoddamnbastards bitched at Hasbro that Derpy was offensive, so Hasbro altered the episode for iTunes even though it is still unedited on TV and the DVD.  The link above was a fan voice actor expressing Derpy's feelings in an inverted way that is supposed to make the idiots who petitioned Hasbro to edit the episode to realize how hateful this would have been if they were addressing a real person.

Certainly there is far more offensive material out there they should focus on censoring... I'm willing to bet that the show's popularity has more to do with it than anything else.

I'm very much not a fan of that show, (I just like some of the pron) but even to me, that's stupid - to change an established in-universe fact because of a few self-obsessed haters? Retarded.

I personally wasn't not offended by Derpy's eyes, or how she talked.  I don't see her as autistic or retarded.  I hope Hasbro or Hub doesn't change her!

Why do people insist on trying to make me sad?  They should know it's futile.  I've got my magic underwear to protect me, along with this little gem:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vUJps6FSTc
