“Arrow” season 4 finale was an utter disaster, the way many fans predicted it would be. Hence, it was no wonder many social media platforms blew up with hate comments after the finale failed to impress. Arrow himself, however, still remains in denial of season 4’s failure and instead blames fans for their outrage.
‘Arrow’ Season 4
While fans of other DC shows like “The Flash”, “Supergirl” and “Legends of Tomorrow” have moved on to discuss about what’s in store for the next seasons of the shows, fans of “Arrow” can’t seem to move past the horrible season 4 finale.
According to International Business Times, fans displayed their anger by going as far as changing the “Arrow” subreddit to read “Daredevil Season 2 Discussion”!
After facing backlash from social media, Stephen Amell, who plays the Green Arrow on the show, went live on Larry King and addressed this issue somewhat vehemently, reports Melty.
“I think Twitter largely is overblown. I’m not saying that these people aren’t passionate and I’m not saying that their opinions shouldn’t matter, but I do think that their voices tend to be so loud that we think the crowd is much bigger than it actually is. I happen to think that it’s much smaller. Most people still enjoy a show in the traditional way, which is to watch it … and not to tweet constantly throughout it,” said Amell.

So apparently it was social media and the fans’ fault that the “Arrow” season 4 finale went down in flames? It is doubtful how well such sarcastic comments from the much-loved DC superhero would be received by the already annoyed fans.
Amell went on to say that the “Olaurel” vs “Olicity” battle was a baseless one: “I think there are sections of the fandom that take to liking a certain character by way of attacking another character. I feel like if you’re going on the attack for fictional characters, you’re probably not real fans of the show.”
Is it wise for the main character of a show to openly belittle fans, who made the show what it is today? Leave your comments below.
