These last two bullet points are pure complaining with no mention of the other side of the argument, so they should definitely be cut.
I stumbled across BrokenBase.Two Best Friends Play, which looks pretty bad. I'm not very familiar with these videos (I have watched a few, but I'm not part of their fan base), but the page has many examples that seem to have been added shortly after the controversy occurred, as well as a lot of one-sided complaining. Honestly, only the very last example on the page reads like it has the slightest chance of possibly being valid:
From YMMV.Cinderella, does the last sentence of the Base-Breaking Character entry for Disney's Cindy really describe a different faction from the two described in the first sentence?

I'm not sure any of those really sound like "factions," just different takes on the character. It's not hard to imagine someone holding two or more of those views simultaneously.
Sounds like something for Alternative Character Interpretation.
That example comes off more as 'people disagree on whether the portrayal was good or bad, for reasons X, Y, and Z', which is PSOC, since that state of play exists for every work.
I agree the RWBY Broken Base additions, especially that last bullet point, needs to be removed.
Two of the bullet points, Lettergate - the 35 page diatribe from a former animator and a supposed friend of Monty Oum accusing Rooster Teeth of "ruining Monty's vision" - and Vic Mignogna - Rooster Teeth firing him over Vic's allegations of sexual misconduct - has already been declared Flame Bait over there.
The other two, the Crunch - a revelation that animators were put through a terrible Crunch Time and were apparently not compensated for it - and the increase of FIRST subscription prices - which really has nothing to do with RWBY itself -happened within the past three months and are really just people complaining for the sake of complaining.
