The only reason "they" bash Westside and Louis is because he's successful. Everybody wants to be better than the next guy. I don't use Westside, but I totally respect the man for what he's done to help others reach their goals.
On the flip side, there seems to be a trend going on that if you disagree with Westside or Louis, then you are somehow "bashing" him. I think it's fine to disagree with people's ideas and still respect them.
