Fake Fans by humon Fake Fans by humon

Before you go "How dare you make fun of bronies for liking something different!?" I'm not.

I'm making fun of the whole idea of there being fake fans of anything. Who excactly decides how or why people should like a thing?

That is actually a really good point, my brother was a brony but fell out it when he realized how fake and showboaty some of the other fans were.

Sounds like me. My buddies & I watched it as a joke and got hooked via animation & references. We eventually saw what the other "Bronies" acted like and left the fandom. I am NOT one of those creeps. *Shutters*

this is very ironic because I saw a grown man call a 4 year old girl a "fake fan" for buying an equestria girls doll.
AvantGardePony Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Oh, man... Really? :|  If I'd seen that I'd have butted right in on that and told the girl she IS a fan, and then take the guy aside and teach him some manners!

...No, really. He obviously hadn't been taught any before.

..What did you think I meant beat him up? GOODNESS NO! I am a gentleman! =P

Joking aside, as a HUGE Brony- that's totally not cool, and I would have probably forgotten my own manners while saying something to the jerk (out of earshot of the 4 yo of course.).

i would've done that too. but its hard to yell at customers AND keep your job.
AvantGardePony Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Which I find to be silly. Some customers deserve to be yelled at, lol. It should be case-by-case.

As a person who once mocked bronies, (and is now waiting for his discord plushie to arrive) this Is pretty dang funny.

I love the idea of this.  I really do. But I have see a "fake fan." Or more so they just like it because everyone else did.

My sister. During the twilight dark ages, all my sister's friends were obsessed. They love it. So, she decided to love it too. She never read the books, but bought the movie, tried watching it once and never made it through. I'm not a fan either but I did read the first (and somewhat of the second) one, so I would ask her like her favorite character or part, she would be like, I dunno who is all in. But claimed she LOVED twilight.

So yea, I get what you are saying, she had every right to like twilight in anyway she wanted to, but she truly was only claiming to like it because all her friends were.

I still don't understand what the problem is though. If she claims to like it, let her. I don't get why people have to prove they love something. I mean, you obviously knew she didn't like it that much, but so what? No harm comes out of it (:
Mintim Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2013   Traditional Artist
No harm except I had to watch the bloody film every day though she wasn't around to watch it, but would yell at me if I wanted to change it.

She never had to prove it and she was allowed to like it, but I'm stating there is such a thing as a fake fan. That doesn't mean she can't do what she wanted with it, but she obv. had only interest in it because it was the popular thing to like.
ShortFocus Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2013  Student Photographer
But if she wasn't around to watch it... then why did you watch it, if you didn't like it though? (there's something I am not getting here, might be because it's early or my lack of knowledge in the English language)
Mintim Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2013   Traditional Artist
I wasn't allowed to change the TV haha. She would pop in a few times to say, "Hey! I'm watching that!"
ShortFocus Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2013  Student Photographer
That's where you need to stand up and say "Nay! I will be handling the box of moving pictures from now on!"
Mintim Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2013   Traditional Artist

As a girl who grew up with the old generations and still loves it to bits, even if it's for 3-year-olds, and as a girl who is a brony/pegasister and has adult relatives who are bronies/pegasisters, There are no fake fans (unless you ACTUALLY ARE pretending to like it for attention and what not. But i've never seen one).

Just because you like the new generation, yet pay no attention to the old generations, does not mean you are a fake fan! Same the other way around!
Artificer-Urza Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2013
Who decides such things? Why the "true" fans do. What is a "true" fan? Why it is anyone who says they are a "true" fan, of course. It all boils down to individualism and selfishness. "I enjoy this thing and thus it was made for me and should continue to cater to my whims and desires. Anyone who disagrees with me is stupid, wrong and an abomination to life."
That's the mentality.

They just like it for all the social benefits it brings ;D
racerabbit Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2013
Exactly. People go out of their way all the time to pretend to be MLP fans just to be in the in crowd ;)
