    Do you know someone that is overly fanatical in their idols/hobbies/etc that it sound illogical?

    "What's that the artist caught with prostitutes and high on drugs? big deal but curse that rival that do the same. "

    "How dare you call them _______ !!! *proceed to view fanfiction of them doing what they accuse them of *

    Term you're looking for is stan, a shortening of super fan. That's what those people are known as these days.

    I remember reading about someone doing self-harm for their favorite game character. I don't even understand how they reached that point.

    Yes. Sometimes they make the biggest thing over issues that aren't even that huge just cause "that's illegal" but there's plenty who's already done equally or even worse but don't really care about it because they aren't their 'idol.'

    What about that slender man case a while back? That’s the first thing that comes to mind.

    Yes, like those people that put the blame on celebrities who committed suicide, saying things about them being not religious enough or something, when the problem clearly originates from cruel people making life hard for the said celebrities.

    Then again, there are fans who are so close-minded that they think the world revolves around their idols, like some kids saying Eminem's fast rap is influenced by some K-Pop idols. :facepalm:
