Some fans are not happy with the way things are going on The Perfectionists. The show, which was imagined as a spinoff of Pretty Little Liars and centers on one of its main characters, Alison DiLaurentis, takes place in a town called Beacon Heights that seems just as dramatic as good ol’ Rosewood. However, Alison’s storyline has some fans up in arms, and Sasha Pieterse,who plays Alison, wants them to stop with their hateful criticism.

Sasha took to Twitter with a thread about the intense trolling she’s been receiving from PLLand The Perfectionists fans about Alison’s storyline on social media. “I know a lot of you are unhappy with Alison’s storyline on #PLLthePerfectionists but these sorts of comments are hurtful and uncalled for,” she wrote. “At the end of the day we are trying our best to make something you’ll love. However, our writers can’t make everyone happy. Attacking someone personally because of a fictional character is unfair and very disrespectful.”

Sasha included some screenshots of tweets, usernames blurred out, attacking her and even replying to one of her tweets with “Die.” Obviously, this is totally inappropriate behavior from anyone, especially fans — you have to remember that The Perfectionists is just a TV show, and that Sasha herself is a real person with real feelings. You can love a TV series and its characters, but at the end of the day, they’re fictional.

“I don’t often address these kinds of comments because I believe it gives their words power,” she continued. “But I think in this case it’s important. This is the ugly part about social media. I love being able to connect with all of you all over the world…but just because we’re not in the same country or state doesn’t mean hate speaks a different language.”
