Regardless of your personal relationship with celebrity culture, it's pretty unavoidable. At every turn we're bombarded with images and updates (that I often write) exposing detailed information about the most famous musicians, actors, and influencers. Before we know it, they can feel like close personal friends.
While technically, most famous people sign up to have strangers obsessively adore them from afar, there comes a point when devoted fandom can quickly turn creepy.
For example, handcrafting endless tweets about a celebrity in hopes that they'll see them? Creepy. Showing up to various locations with the sole intention of spotting them grocery shopping, buying a new t-shirt, or taking a loved on out to eat? Also probably creepy, but also, who among us HASN'T done one of these things (I'm exposing myself here)?!
In fact, several episodes of our Someecards podcast Creep explores the ways being a fan can easily go too far.
Our most recent episode includes a tale of spotting O-Town in the parking lot of Walmart, the world of Kelly Ripa erotica, and the best and worst celebrity sex tapes.
In this episode a guest shares how she regularly stalks Ezra Miller while he walks his dog.
This episode includes a story about stalking Lena Dunham's ex-boyfriend at a Levis.
In celebration of the innate creepiness of fandom, I've gathered 18 hilarious tweets made by very eager fans.
