Yeah, so Sabrina truly is the new Giancarlo, and took his place in a way>>93130658
Giancarlo Volpe was pretty good at engaging with and trolling the fandom, directed some really nice episodes, great guy, he'll be missed
Sabrina Cotugno used to be a storyboard revisionist or whatever but recently got promoted to director, apparently around the time Volpe left the team to work on something else.
Cotugno is a rather active sjw caring deeply about race and gender and identity politics and all that. She's said on twitter that she for example wishes that the fans who like and produce content that sexualises underage characters would be prosecuted, probably talking about Area and Seddm from tumblr.
She's also said on tumblr that everyone in the show is bisexual, which she apparently meant as a joke but lot of the fandom took as word-of-god anyway. Now she recently commented on what Tom's race is, apparently without any legit canon info, and gave an answer that contradicts canon stuff in the guidebook and mumbled something about "it's hard to say" if Tom's a monster or not and said that she envisions Tom as mixed race (she's mixed race and brings it up a lot) and then talked something about mewman passing privilege and totally equated monsters as poc and mewmen as white, and made it clear that she hasn't read the book at all but just comments with her headcanon guesses anyway lol fuck canon amirite
It's like she doesn't understand at all that people don't give a shit about her personal headcanons but just want her to give canon reliable answers as a rep of the crew. It's like she doesn't understand how this promotion reflects into her relationship with the fans, or that the things she says now suddenly are kinda official.
