Okay, because of the confusion from partial tweets from the Team Wolf con in Paris, this is the exact transcript of Tyler’s answer to the Sterek question. I do have video proof of this moment, which I will post once I’m home.
The girl asking the question had a strong accent and spoke quietly, so at first Tyler didn’t understand the question.
"Do you ship Sterek? It’s Stiles and Derek."
"Oh, Sterek! Uhm, I will say this, and I mean, I know, I’m glad you guys actually… Because I wanna say, I know that’s like a big, like, a fan fic thing, I know that everybody, kind of, kind of, everybody talks about that.
But for me, personally, just because I have so much respect for Derek as the character and for Stiles as the character that… for me, it’s like, to live in that, or to really think about that… I… just for me, personally, as the actor playing the character… I feel like I would be disrespecting the character, so I don’t really entertain it, or even think about it, just because for me, it’s such a separate thing, it has… it doesn’t really have anything to do with what happens on the show.
So because it doesn’t have anything to do with that… I guess I don’t have any thoughts on it, because, it’s… to me… It’s those characters are their own people… Uhm.. And, so it’s, it’s not a, it’s not disrespect, it’s not anything like that. I understand, I don’t personally understand… It… Completely. Um, I appreciate it. [laughter] You guys do what you wanna do. But to me it’s just like, I see the characters for who they really, actually are in the show, so it’s nothing to do with the work that I do. So that’s the only reason why I don’t really think about it.”
I really want to see what is going on behind the scenes with MTV, their sponsors, and Jeff Davis. Because this?
This is a complete one eighty from everything Tyler H has EVER SAID about sterek. Sober and drunk. And, look at this answer - he’s trying so hard not to sound like an asshole and yet he still says its “disrespecting” the character to imagine him in a loving queer relationship? That is not Tyler talking - he’s gone on record multiple times to say he’s not that kind of Christian, this isn’t something he would say without prompting.
Sterek bans at conventions and then this? There is something going on behind the scenes and I really desperately want to know what it is. Viacom owns MTV, right? Do we know anything about where they’re getting their money? Where they’ve been putting it?
Because this is upsetting and bullshit - and i blame the fucking powers that be, Tyler is NOT Jensen, and this is not how he reacts to sterek.
