Derpy Hooves is the infamous background pony from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Her creation was the result of the primarily autistic male audience of the show pointing out an animation error involving said character having wall eyes in the background.
Since then, she became a phenomenon and essentially became a direct representation of the unintended brony fan base. Her infamy only skyrocketed when she was given a voice in the beginning of the episode "The Last Roundup" and was edited out due to accusations made by liberal pussies waving their flag of internet social justice. This drove off and became a war between bronies and politically correct douchebags fighting over a show about cartoon horses.

On January 21, 2012 every brony jizzed themselves when long time fan character Derpy Hooves was given speaking lines and named specifically in a new episode. They immediately flooded the internet with more faggotry than they usually do when a new episode airs; celebrating their ultimate domination over a cartoon for little girls.
Prelude to a flame war
In the days that followed the episode's airing a small faction of fans who were offended by Derpy's portrayal emerged in the cesspit of furfags that is Ponychan. They said that her voice and actions in the episode were degrading to people with mental illnesses. Naturally the bronies met this difference of opinion with their typical mantra of love and tolerance...We're just fucking with you, they immediately lost their collective shit and began a flame war. Petitions were signed, letter writing campaigns were started, and shitty fanart in support of Derpy was posted on deviantART. In a completely surprising turn of events the episode was removed from iTunes and all instances of "Derpy" were being removed from the online retailer, WeLoveFine. The bronies immediately realized that all their campaigning had done exactly the opposite of what they intended. (many lulz were had by the bronies who saw this coming)
An enemy of the lulz emerges
The bronies calmed down and returned to their usual routine of masturbating to fanfiction of ponies fucking, but a question lingered in the air. Who was responsible for the initial instance of butthurt? Enter Yamino (aka Elen Barbarich), an official sufferer of TOTIS (Tranny On The Internet Syndrome) and USI. At some point during the first flame war Yamino had begun posting to her tumblr blog about how anyone who supported Derpy was an "ableist" and that she fully supported removal of the character from the episode to protect retarded children everywhere. After whining about the Derpy issue for months all the bronies decided she was responsible for the episode being pulled from iTunes and moved their campaign of rage from Ponychan to Yamino's blog.
Yamino's blog was well fortified with a trained army of white knights who would defend their queen at all costs. Armed with a near infinite supply of copypasta and death threats, the bronies waged a war of attrition against the blog for the next month. Yamino reaped many lulz from the flame war while the butthurt and frustration amongst the bronies grew on a daily basis from raids by her followers and the resilience of her overinflated ego.
The butthurt reaches critical mass
Roughly a month after the episode was pulled from iTunes it reappeared, re-dubbed and edited to be "less offensive". The amount of rage and butthurt that errupted from the bronies was enough to keep /b/ in a lulz surplus for at least 100 years. Yamino claimed that her campaign of lulz was successful while clopping to the altered scene in celebration as even more death threats than before began flooding in. Afraid that one of the basement dwelling furfags might actually make good on one of their threats another animator stepped into the fray to clarify Yamino had nothing to do with the changes. Despite this effort to prematurely stop one of the best lollercoasters in brony history, the flame war continued without missing a beat.
A Tenuous Peace is Forged
February 28th, 2012 the bronies got their long awaited response from Hasbro. Afraid to get anywhere near the flamewar the message was relayed via an article on.

This did not go over well with the bronies and it seemed this would be the beginning of yet another long campaign of rage. Before the brony hive could whip up a fresh batch of copypasta for the rekindled war effort the episode's writer, Amy Rogers, appeared and revealed herself as the puppet-master of lulz behind everything. The rage of the bronies vanished like a white toddler walking home from school. With the final blow dealt to their armies the bronies returned once more to their dank, fetid basements where they would resume their rituals of faggotry. Woe be unto the unfortunate anon who next faces their collective wrath.
After a recent one-night fling with Justin Bieber, she renamed herself on Facebook as Herp Derp "in acknowledgment of her positive outlook."
The Return of Derpy
Starting with the fourth season, Derpy made a huge comeback after the Derpygeddon died out. And then comes the fifth season in their 100th episode. Derpy talks again with a important role, causing the bronies to shit their pants in joy.
