• Michael Morones Passes Away


    We have some sad news for you all tonight. A few days ago we became aware that Michael Morones, a boy who tried to commit suicide due to bullying over liking MLP when he was 11 back in 2014, has passed away.

    At 5:30 PM on October 27th, Michael Morones passed away surrounded by loved ones. 

    He died 7 years after attempting to take his own life brought on by the intense bullying he suffered in school for being a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. His suicide attempt was unsuccessful but left him in a vegetative state for the rest of his life. 

    For some of our long-time fans, you may remember Michael and the outpouring of community support for him after the incident, helping with a GoFundMe for him and even Andrea Libman herself paying him a visit as Pinkie Pie was his favorite pony.

    His family will be holding a memorial within the next couple of weeks to celebrate his life. They have made it known that anyone who is willing/able to attend will be welcome.

    We here at EqD extend our condolences to the family and we wish that Michael may rest in peace. We hope you're partying with Pinkie now, buddy.
