Is Dana Brody TV's most hated character right now?

The name 'Morgan Saylor' probably doesn't ring a bell for most people but for a lot of meme-loving Homeland fans out there, the character 'Dana Brody' definitely does. 

It's just as well that Dana has a much bigger internet profile than the 18-year-old actress, since most of the 'buzz' out there are on dedicated hate sites. 

As a recent Daily Beast interview points out, the buffet of anti-Dana projects include: Buzzfeed's 'Why Dana Brody is the worst"; SNL's Dana sketch about 'the annoying thing she does with her sleeves'; GQ's entire essay on the Dana Brody Face and of course -- the Dana Brody Twitter parody account. 

So what's it like to play TV's most hated character? This is what Saylor has to say:

"Anna Gunn wrote that op-ed for The New York Times about Skyler White. I kind of wanted to comment on it and be like, “Yeah, I know how you feel.” But characters are not always supposed to be loved. You could look at most characters and see mixed reactions."

Sounds like Saylor has a healthy sense of irony when it comes to the character v real life hate. Also, unlike actress Anna Gunn, she doesn't attribute the negative reaction entirely to the 'double standard for women characters': 

" I don’t know completely if it’s a sexism thing. I think a lot of characters get a lot of shi-. Maybe women more than men, but ... I’m not that offended by it. And therefore it’s not that big of a deal.

There you have it. Joke's on you, weird people of the internet who has a bone to pick with Dana's sleeves! And as Daily Beast's  helpfully pointed out, Anna Gunn just won an Emmy for playing Skyler, so perhaps it's worth ignoring the hate memes?
