Quote SadieLadie: [quote]Quote ajsp35801: I could be reading too much into this and I probably am...But MS not liking to be called "Red" just solidifies my opinion that she doesn't want to be paired with Jack. And someone correct me if I am wrong about the context but why would she just say that.[b] Did someone call her that on twitter and she told them she didn't like it to distinguish herself from the character she plays. Or is it just that she doesn't like the nickname..[[b].does PB know this? Did he start calling her that on his own or was it in the script for him to do that?[/
Someone on Instagram called her Red and MS told her exactly what the OP wrote. I felt sorry for the fan. She wasn't being offensive and MS overreacted; was rude, in my opinion. When your fans stop talking to you period....then you need to worry.
She was rude. Period.
Don't be rude to fans! How hard is that? Her claim to fame was playing a devious Red head on a soap. Embrace it.
Can you blame the woman for being tired of people interchanging her with the character she plays? I don't see how that is being rude.
It comes with the territory. She's paid very handsomely to do something that she clearly loves to do and would not be possible without fans and viewership. I don't think it's too much to ask for her to be gracious to fans.
It she was called a nasty name, that's different. But to get snarky with a fan is just bad practice unless they were disrespectful. She could have easily ignored it. And given that her only real claim to fame is her role on Y&R, she should expect that most tweets directed towards her very public twitter profile will be regarding the show and not the actress. So if she's tired of dealing with "crazy" fans that don't distinguish her from her character, then she probably shouldn't be on twitter.
