|Seriously, Teen Wolf Fandom?

I've been watching Teen Wolf, but my interaction with fandom has been superficial. BUT apparently there's a tendency in fandom to hate on Scott? Especially in fanfic? Especially Sterek fanfic? (Why is it that Sterek shippers keep coming up in a bad light?)
This meta does a great job of talking not just about the common Scott-bashing tropes but also about why they're WRONG. (Although I doubt that the motive for the bashing is racism because, honestly, not every single shitty thing that people do, even involving PoC, is motivated by racism. There are other forms of bigotry/idiocy.)
But, seriously? I would not have ever imagined for there to be Scott hatred in fandom. I mean...for WHAT? He's not even any sort of obstacle/threat for Sterek (the way Michael is obviously threatening to B/J in QaF). And while he may not be perfect NEITHER IS DEREK. Or Stiles for that matter. I just...IDEK. Fail, Fandom, just fail.
