All fanbases have given her beef via twitter or her blog at one point or another...we're ALL a bit cray ya know... One thing I can say... I think she finally lost the Lumis... It was that tweet about her not seeing Sami as a victim that did it for me personally and many other lumis... Regardless of what she loves about the story now or how delighted she may be that Ejami is getting a chance, the minute she said that she lost me totally... She could have said that Sami doesn't view herself as a victim, and I wouldn't have had an issue...oh we'll, just wish that Bry had more to do with or without Days.
If an actor is going to pimp a storyline, then they have to expect some to give a negative reaction. Especially a couple that started with rape. I think it depends on how invested people are in the show, and their voices are just as important as the "hallelujah" chorus that ship the couple. All make up the audience.
I could not agree more, as a Days fan who loves Days but does not care for EJ and Sami together I am tired of being the one who feels the need to keep quiet and or join the EJAMI bandwagon. Many rape victims do not see themselves as a victim as part of the psychology involved in the trauma, they often go on to lead destructive relationships with men based on the rape confusing sexual attraction and fear, not seeing that they were in fact victims of VIOLENCE. In an effort to reconcile the event, they falsely believe they "controlled" it by making a choice about it when in fact the choice was robbed from them. Just because you do not see yourself as a victim, does not change the fact you have been victimized.

If you are involved in a storyline with ramifications to women's issues and greater social implications and you speak out on them, then hell yes, you have better expect people to not only disagree with you but to tell you exactly what they think of you and your character.

I have nothing against Ali Sweeney, I do not know her life story and I appreciate her dedication to her fans, but EJAMI fans are not the only Days viewers and he did rape her. ALso, there are millions of potential viewers that this show needs to raise ratings and revenue to ensure its longevity. It is a hard sell introducing people to EJAMi on screen now because they are so damn boring to compensate for the atrocities they have committed to one another including the rape.

Ali Sweeney can do little else but pimp the storyline she is in, and it is the show now that has her in the position to pimp this hideous couple, I truly feel bad for her.
