As allegations on ‘political motivations’ intensify, venue relocation ensues for FreeFurAll

DISCLAIMER: Some tweet posts below may contain language considered offensive to some viewers. Reader discretion is advised.

In the US, an upcoming Oklahoma-based convention named FreeFurAll has been under fire because furries alleged they have political agendas. The response from the furry community was heated.

As a result, in a statement released on Sept 15, the convention says their host hotel asked them to relocate. They say it is done “for fear of the civil unrest threatened by those who want to see this event be cancelled.”

The statement also writes “FreeFurAll is proudly #uncancelable,” which furries perceived it as a reference to cancel culture, a term often put together with politics today.

Some furries instead say the hotel’s actions came after screenshots of an alleged FreeFurAll staff sending unsolicited death threats was released on Twitter. However, it is unconfirmed currently whether the instigator was a staff member. This is because the convention’s staff manifest is unknown yet.

On one hand, this was met with many furries supporting the action. One user remarked, “Ohhhh! Very good news! TrumpCon 2022 is now cancelled!!!!”

On the other hand, some furries expressed displeasure towards the fandom. One user says the more furries fire at the convention, the more they prove “cancel culture exists and is rampant in (furry fandom).”


FreeFurAll争议:鉴于“有政治动机”指控日渐强烈,将会另择地址举办展会

在美国俄克拉荷马州,一场即将到来的,名为FreeFurAll的展会已经被众兽友集火,因为兽友们称兽展方案政治味太浓。兽圈对此讨论喋喋不休。

因此,展会主办在九月十五发言说,他们的合作酒店要求他们另择其他活动地点。主办方说这是出于对“那些想看到这个活动被取消的人所威胁的动乱”的担忧。

同时,FreeFurAll发言中提到:“FreeFurAll是自豪地不可取消的”,而兽友们把它作为指点“取消文化”(Cancel Culture)的一种预兆,这个词也经常被用于政治方面。

有些兽友却说,酒店做出此举,是因为据称有类FreeFurAll员工主动发送死亡威胁的照片在推特上被曝光。然而目前暂未能确认照片中的人是否是员工,这是因为该展员工名单暂未公开。

一方面,此举得到了许多支持该行为的兽友的相应,一位兽友评论道:“Ohhh!!好耶!!特朗普展2022现在取消了!!!”

另一方面,有些兽友表达了对兽圈的失望。一位兽友评论说,越是有更多人集火这场展会,兽圈中蔓延的取消文化越是不证自明。
