You mean like the people who play Teemo specifically because everyone hates Teemo?

Okay, that's not a perfect example. Perhaps I should take this from a different angle; not everyone likes everything Riot does with champions and skins. Rather, the champions and skins they release will always have a certain appeal to large niches in the community.

I do understand where you're coming from though, there would be stress in the community over this, even if it is a trivial thing on a champion that's not as frequently seen as some. I just don't see how this would be much different (besides the "*** sells" bit) from what was said about BB Riven, or Ahri's release.

I don't think I can describe how horrified I would be to see any such skin implemented.

Why? How does this affect you in any way? You just wouldn't buy the skin.

Hate ponies. Love this idea. It should be done.
When a pony hater like me says that this should be done, YOU KNOW IT IS A BOSS IDEA.

Players who aren't Bronies/MLP Fans would be forced to see the skin in-game, weather they like it or not. It's pretty easy to figure out honestly.

I personally don't care for the show, but I do like Hecarim as a champion. I wouldn't want the show's influence flooding into a game I enjoy. It's going to cause rage and spread hatred across the playerbase, and for that reason, is a terrible idea. The ONLY way it would be acceptable as a skin, is if they change any cutesyness to creepy and sinister-looking alternatives, but still make it look relatable to the show.

What I mean is, keep Hecarim's design similar, but make the colors more closely related to the show. Kind of like Surprise Party Fiddlesticks. Yes, he's decked out in pastels, and pretty colors, but one look at the splash art for that skin, and you just know he's creepy as ****, regardless. That's what would need to happen with an MLP skin for Hecarim. Keep it creepy, but make it so fans of the show can still be content with it.

On a related note,
the main issue I have with MLP fans is exactly this. They try to push their likes off on others, or get it into games they play, and quite honestly I find it to be extremely rude. There's people out there who like the game as is, without ponies involved. Please stop trying to push them on us non-fans, and game developers. I can understand that everyone likes what they like, but there's a line that needs to not be crossed. Pushing for this to be added into the game is crossing that line...

Listen I'm not shoving MLP down your throat, I'm just saying that this would be an awesome skin and that It would make a lot of players happy

No, fanboy. Go DIAF. Hecarim is badass; ponies are not.
