YMMV: Che Guevara

  • Misaimed Fandom: A real-life person with real-life Misaimed Fandom, he rightly provides the page image. It may be worth noting that this is a guy who had hundreds of people killed for the sake of the Cuban communist revolution. Among those who are aware of this, those who would see this as unjustified would obviously not be fans of him, and even those who see it as justified would be somewhat hypocritical to turn around and support capitalism by buying t-shirts and coffee mugs just because they have his image on it. In theory, then, both Che supporters and Che detractors alike should be opposed to merchandise of the guy, even if for different reasons (as noted here in an article from The Other Wiki) yet it manages to be enormously popular.
