I just read an entire article about how many people hate and harass Pietro due to his clown appearance. I can understand people having aesthetics for their towns and islands but I've seen so many people go out of their way to harass Pietro and it's so heartbreaking to me. He's one of my favorite villagers.
What are you're opinions on Pietro?

I remember when New Leaf was coming out and being so excited when I saw Pietro listed as one of the new villagers. I love him, mostly because he's a sheep and the sheep are adorable I hate to bully any of the villagers cause they're all so nice (unless we're talking about AC:GC, the villagers weren't nice back then). Sure it's just a game, but I don't see the point in harassing villagers because you deem them "ugly," like I'm sure the people harassing ugly villagers aren't cute themselves

but if you keep moving, you will come to a better place.
I'm not a fan of Pietro because I find clowns and ACNL's take on smug villagers to be a bit creepy. I did have him in my ACNL town at one point, so I drew my own conclusion based on personal experience. I like ACNH's smugs a lot more, so my experience of him might have been different if I had met him there instead.
However, I really don't get why anybody would want to waste their time harassing a virtual sheep. Since doing this involves going out of one's way to interact with a character that they claim to dislike, it seems like an unusual thing to do. Why not just spend time with the characters that you do like? That was what I did.
Pietro is a great villager! I honestly wouldn't mind having them, the whole idea of clown villagers is funny to me, and that's interesting coming from somebody who really does NOT like clowns. Him being a sheep also helps.
What do I do
with all of these
He grew on me a bit over time because he was in Chuggaaconroy's let's play but in NL I didn't like him for the most part because of his aesthetics but also because his house was filled with those awful balloon furniture pieces.

He's one of the Smug villagers I had on my wishlist. I ended up getting very lucky and getting Raymond on the 6th, but for my final 10th villager, I made a huge island tour in which I rejected many great candidates. On my 97th ticket out of 100, Pietro appeared. I invited him in and have not regretted it one bit.
That being said, out of all the villagers I have right now he is one of the few who may end up getting replaced since I really want to have Caroline for reasons unrelated and possibly Muffy, and since I already have 4 cats I don't want any species to repeat lol.
I love him to bits, though, he's awesome and I'll be very sad to see him go. I will probably ensure I get his picture and celebrate his birthday before saying farewell.
A lot of these responses are really heartwarming to me. It's been nice getting other people's opinions on Pietro that aren't just thinking he's ugly or people not liking him due to being a clown. I'm very glad to hear their are people who appreciate Pietro.

I always loved him, he was tough to find in NL cause he was coveted by few so nobody ever wanted to let him go haha I think it's kind of silly and pretentious to visit a town where even the villagers are "designed" to go with the layout. It's like I don't tell the ugly people irl they can't stay here... why would I do that to my poor villagers?
