If you haven't heard, there are a few rumors going around that Hasbro and WeLoveFine are either changing the name, voice, personality, or removing entirely the character of Derpy. D:
This is due to the backlash Hasbro has received from a few people who are insulted at the premise that Derpy has "mental disabilities." These people seriously need to chill.
Let's keep our beloved heroine of Bronies as she is. Derpy is the symbol of our totally awesome relationship between fanbase and creator. We shouldn't let her be erased due to some peoples negligence of this connection.
The thing is, the studio and Hasbro knows how much we love Derpy, so I'm sure this wasn't done out of spite to us. And neither I nor anyone else can say why it was done, or who did this or that. There are some things we can't understand, and probably won't understand. Don't point fingers. Don't hate. And don't hate on the people who have a different opinion. Take a deep breath and be cool. Eat some muffins. Feel free to sign the edited petition. Derpy forever.

Some people seem to think she is apparently, and although I believe the people who think her voice is offensive are overreacting a little bit too much, I think Hasbro made the safest decision to keep the naysayers pacified. Personally I wish it didn't have to be that way but there's enough drama flying around anyways.
I know how you feel. And she should be back. But for the sake of being politically correct, Hasbro probably won't bring her back. But at least Derpy had her shining moment of fame, even if it was cut short.
I know, I understand the politics behind the decision, I just can't help getting a bit intolerant at other peoples intolerance(blatant irony on my part ) on certain subjects. Like when One Million Moms was trying to make JCP cancel their commercials with Ellen DeGeneres because she's lesbian.
But we had our shining Derpy moment, we all know it happened, and we should be proud that the FiM team thought of us so endearingly.
Mmm...indeed. More Derpy is always a good thing, no matter what drama she's in.
Yeah...people are ridiculous. My take on those women is that they're mostly 30-55yr old suburban Mid-Western American hyper-religious soccer moms who want to complain about something other than their 2.3 children. So yeah, pretty empty.
Derpy, this song is my rallying cry, It's time to save you and it's DO OR DIE! You're behind the bars of Hasbro's disgrace, And are afraid to show your face...
But when you hear the marching of feet, And the bronies chanting, "DERPY HOOVES!" to the beat, Always know we'll do it right, 'Cause we don't give up 'TILL WE WIN THE FIGHT!
Here's a toast to the host of one mail mare who's just began to cry, But we as a group can dry those tears and lift her to the sky! We fight to save her eyes, her voice, her name And we have called on those who'll do the same, For all the bronies in the world, LET'S HELP HER AGAIN TO FLY!
Off we go, chanting her name! She'll hear us, Watch us all, joining as one! Hear our shouts, come in and join the chorus We won't stop til the battle is won, TIL THE BATTLE IS WON!
Hear us yell "DERPY!" for all around here Fight the foes, win in the wars! We'll save her name, and we'll fight the flames 'Cause NOTHING CAN STOP THE DERPY HOOVES FORCE!
so i realize that while Derpy is jet clumsy no say anything about snails who is actually mental hand cape or rainbow dash about being a homo because pointy out the fact that she is homo would be offensive to gays well doesn't offend people who are and aren't offensive too because it is making fun. that and snails is acutely mentally ill wouldn't he also be offniseve [link]
