[quote]Quote Laduree: [quote]Quote Lady53: [quote]Quote YR2013: Why are MM fans being talked about like their idiots and fools for trying to save their favorite? Isn't this bashing a fan base? Or let me take a while guess, it's "opinions" right? I didn't see his fans doing anything different than Lane fans did years ago and I don't think what MM fans did for him is any more stupid or waste of time than Phick fans who were writing boat loads of letters and doing all kinds of gimmicks to save them. Every fan base, and I mean every fan base has the "right" to do as they wish. Respect that because the support MM is getting is no different than that of others. I'm sure if this was another actor, their fans would support them full force and to demean others and say they have money to waste of make fun of them is bashing a fan base in my opinion but I'm sure that will wash under the bridge along with every other bashing and negative thing said about MM and his fans in this thread. I didn't donate money to the cause, but for those who did, more power to them and I want to say to every MM fan, good for you for supporting your fave. UNTIL he's PROVEN guilty, you/me/we have the "right" to support him and even IF he's proven guilty, people STILL has the god given "right" to support or not support him.
All in all it seems like we've moved back to the dark ages where a person should be shot first and then question asked later. Careful what we sow, we can and probably should reap it in spades.[/quote]
If you are directing this at me, you need to learn what fan base bashing is. I have not said one bad thing about MM's fans and I haven't seen anybody else do that either.
My stating the truth about what happened with the banner is just that, the truth. I am not to blame because they had it fly over the wrong studio.
Also like I have said in this thread, it would be a better thing to donate the money to MM's favorite charity in his name because flying a banner wouldn't do any good.
Well they just proved my point even more so, by having it fly over the wrong studio and by doing so have made themselves a joke according to what is being said on all the social media out there.
Again NOT MY FAULT or anybody else's but theirs.
So please refrain from saying we are bashing the MM fan base when we clearly aren't.
Thank You have good evening[/quote]
I've seen derogatory comments on this board directed at MM fans. One comment directed at me, but cloaked as- the majority of his fans (paraphrasing), was that we think he's God. I was very offended by that. It's laughable on its face, and I should have ignored it, but after seeing it repeated far and wide I had had quite enough with the nonsense. I stopped posting in these types of threads because many are just ready to get a rope and hang him from the nearest tree. Maybe it's the defense law part of me, but I actually do believe in innocent until proven guilty, and I do know there's more than one side to a story. The Duke LaCrosse rape case should give everyone pause.
All that being said I'm not accusing you, personally, of bashing MM's fanbase, but I wanted to point out that comments have been and are being made.[/quote]
TY for stating this. I think it's offensive to tell his fans they "worship" him because he's their "god". I mean really, what right does anyone have in saying this about MM or his fans, and it's not said as a joke or a one time comment, it's done over and over again. The intention of the comments are clear IMO and I don't have to "wonder" about what some think and feel about MM and his fans, I KNOW what some think and feel as per their comments.
