Fandom and Toxicity

toxic
   Has fandom become to toxic to just enjoy something that they love? Throwing hissy fits when a story doesn’t go their way, taking to the virtual streets with torches and pitchforks when an actor expresses their own opinions about anything, or that it’s “OK” to constantly hound a creator until that person finally just leaves the field.
 
   NONE of this is OK. None of these people would ever act like this to somebody in person. The ones who do probably walk with a permanent limp now, or have a never ending broken nose.
 
   To be clear, this is just a very small part of every fandom, but the old adage “One bad apple can spoil the bunch” is true. These entitled “fanbrats” are making all fans look bad, and making it less fun to be a fan.
