On March 8, 2012, Walking Dead Forums poster “rickfan22” asked his fellow message board visitors [sic’d], “I know I am probably going to get flamed for this, but I just wanted to know why everyone has animosity for Lori? I know she has done some stuff that is stupid (driving and hitting that walker then crashing the car was really dumb), but people LOATHE her for some reason…I welcome opinions, but please have some info to back your responses. I don’t want to see ‘She is just a dumb bitch.’”
This past Sunday, only 90 minutes after season two ended with a whiny, Carl Face’d whimper, “rickfan22” posted the 129th update to the thread: “Well, the season finale did it. I officially hate Lori right now, and most of the group. Everyone flipping sh*t at Rick for doing what had to be done with Shane, and Lori acting the way she did after SHE TOLD HIM TO KILL HIM! God I despise that woman right now…”
That effectively sums up the entire Internet’s reaction Lori; it just took “rickfan22” longer to realize it than most. I’ve never seen such an outpour of ill-will against one character (deservedly so) as I have in the last two days for Lori Grimes. Here are some of my favorites.
