Patchy the Pirate: SPONGEBOB BETRAYED US! Aah! I'm sorry I ever started this stupid fanclub in the first place. I'm gonna get rid of all my Spongebob stuff! All of it! All of it! (pulls out underwear) All of it! I'm gonna run away! That's what I'm gonna do! Run away! (uncontrolled sobbing).

"A Trekker is a Star Trek fan, and a Trekkie is someone who insists you call them a Trekker."
Luke Ski

"By the same logic used by the illogical dipshits commenting on YouTube, "Black and Yellow" can be about any one of these [Pittsburgh sports] teams note , or, it could be about a bee, Michael Keaton's Batman, a taxi, a tiger, fucking Pikachu! Just because a team purchases the rights to play the song in their stadium or arena or for promotional use, that doesn't make it about them. [...] [The song] is not about the Pittsburgh Steelers. [...] It's about cars, money, bitches, hoes, bling, smokin' weed, and haters."''
Adam Buckley responding to the fandom of Wiz Khalifa, Musical Autopsy: Wiz Khalifa — Black & Yellow

"The lesson behind this wall of text is: There are two kinds of people who read Warriors: People who like Warriors, and Warriors fans. If you happen to be the former, stay the hell away from any of the latter for the sake of your health."
—A troper, on the Unpleasable Fanbase of Warrior Cats.

"I'm glad you are willing to admit how horrible the characters are. I also thank you for showing how much of a hypocrite you are. I shall continue to hate this video and every FF XIII video in existence. When XIII Versus and XV come out, I'll be there to destroy those games and expose them for what they are too. If you don't like it, go find another series to defend. Because I am more of a fan than you shall ever be. Go cry in a corner now and get into a university, jack-ass."
YouTube user banglefaar (who now changed his username to "You don't know what you're talking about", his most favorite response to those who disagree with him) in a video comment

"You’re not a true metal fan! This is the allegation I have read in several metal forums over the years. It always boggled my mind when I saw someone say that to someone else. I mean, who gets to define what a true fan is? What constitutes being a fan of something at all, let alone being a “true” fan? What the hell does that even mean?"

"my last wish for undertale is that when discussion of it fades it dies peacefully instead of morphing into a garbage cesspool"

"Angry Ghostbusters fans are so distraught over a trailer that they've turned to systematically brigading against it on YouTube, down-voting the trailer as if that will somehow make Columbia Pictures decide to cancel the film ... instead giving them even more fucking publicity in the process.

Because fans are emotional, dumb babies who feel like there's sanctity around whatever cash grab they personally grew up with. And for that reason, they cannot be trusted to accurately say if the movie is going to suck ass or be a timeless classic like Independence Day and its goddamn incredible sequel. Resurgence is — in the words of one esteemed critic — 'like seeing a fun house on fire!'"

"The real issue isn't a lack of creativity, or amazement fatigue, it's that FAMDOM [sic] SUCKS ASS! If you want to stop caring about something, just talk to a hardcore fan of it for five minutes. Between insane theories (Morty is actually Rick) and pointless nitpicking and complaining (does ANYONE who watches The Walking Dead actually like it?), they suck the joy out of literally everything. I remember a quote that read, 'I never knew Star Wars sucked until the Internet told me.' Fandom does this to EVERYTHING. Sports teams, bands, movies, TV shows, books. Hell, I'm surprised they haven't figured out a way to ruin porn."

"There's really two kinds of football fanatics out there; so there's the classy, respectful football fanatic, and then there's the moron. You wonder, "who is he actually going home to tonight?" Those are the kind of fanatics that give us a bad name."
Jonny Loquasto, 1000 Ways to Die

"No one hates 'Star Wars' quite like a 'Star Wars' fan."
