I'm so tired of how there seems to be this mindset of "I'm a fan, therefore the creator/celeb/etc I'm a fan of OWES me." It's insane how people feel like they're entitled to photos when they've stalked the public figure to get it, to know every little private and personal detail (who they're dating for example), to receive kind replies to creepy comments all because "I'm a fan. Without me they'd be nothing. They OWE me more." And without them you'd be bored out of your mind soooo... >.>
Just no. A creator/celeb/etc produced content you consumed (whether or not you enjoyed it doesn't really matter, you choose to consume it). They created something, you consumed it, they got the views/money/positive ratings/whatever they wanted as "payment" for it and you got your entertainment/product/etc. That's it. That's all. The transaction was finished with that. They don't owe you every second of their life or a positive reaction when you're acting possessive, obsessed and creepy.
You don't go to a grocery store, buy a banana and then say "LOOK! I supported your store now give me all you oranges!"
And comments where you're using a person's Instagram/FB page like it's tinder is creepy af. When you stalk someone and wait outside their hotel, demanding a photo, is creepy af (triple creepy when it's a child and you're a grown adult). When you take photos of someone from far away, while they're eating too, like a stalker, is creepy af. You don't get to be upset when they don't respond the way you want. You are NOT the victim here. You are the predator.
And saying "it's the internet" or "that's what you get for going into their line of work so get used to it" is NOT okay. People should learn to behave themselves and the people who can't should be treated like exactly what they are: a sex offender, a stalker, an abuser, a predator , not some "internet troll" or overzealous "fan" who's harassment gets laughed off or excused because it's online or "apart of the job".
Their job is to act, sing, product content, etc... things THEY choose to product. Not what YOU choose. That's it. If they decide to share more it is a choice that should be up to them, with no pressure. Their job is not to keep you entertained in their personal time or respond positively to your inappropriate comments or behavior. I don't care what kind of content they produce, whether it's family friendly or lewd af, they do not owe YOU any sort of reaction or more of their time. You. Are. Not. Entitled. To. Another. Living. Being. No matter how much time, money or "support" you give them.
And when it comes to many internet creators (youtubers, cosplayers, instagram peeps) who often have things like Patreon or donation platforms set up: Donating does not mean they OWE you more. Supporting them, donating, is a CHOICE you decide to do because you like the content they produce and don't mind spending a bit on it. If that isn't enough for you then DO NOT DONATE. If you are going into it with the mindset of "If I donate, they'll owe me their time, a conversation, flirty responses to my come-ons, their phone number, personal info, etc etc" you are, frankly and bluntly put, a delusional loser. You are a predator and you are looking at an individual like they're an object you can possess, buy or own. You and your mindset/reason for donating is sickening and disturbing and you are not a real "fan".
Being a "fan" of someone does not give you the excuse to stop behaving like a normal human and start acting like an obsessed, possessive, perverted psychopath. Dont. Be. A. Creep. These people are human, living beings, not objects, and deserve to be treated with the same respect that you'd show any other person you interact with on the daily. And if you're just someone that has zero respect for anyone and has no boundaries, then please, just go fall off the face of the earth (OR learn some manners and basic social skills). There's enough assholes in the world already. Don't be another one.
Incidents I'm referencing: The photo incident with Finn Wolfhard (who's a child, mind you). Another photo incident with Lili Reinhart. And pretty much every social media person's/content creator's/celeb's comment section .-. and just a lot of what celebrities/public figures deal with on a daily irl~
