EVERY positive addition to the cultural canon has now been irreparably destroyed by its own fans, a new study has found.
Among the casualties are iconic franchises such as Star Wars, the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Doctor Who, which were all found to be victims of their most purportedly diehard fans’ twattery.
Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute for Studies said: “Our research found that people who claim to be part of a ‘fandom’ are actually toxic individuals intent on ruining things for themselves and others.
“Can you really call yourself a fan if you make two hour videos titled ‘Everything Wrong with Black Panther‘ or start Twitter campaigns to destroy the life of a showrunner because he misremembered the backstory of a minor Dalek?
“If you find yourself suffering from a destructive obsession like this, the official medical advice is to get a f**king grip.”
Star Wars fan Joshua Hudson said: “I adore Star Wars so much that I sent some of the cast members death threats on social media because they appeared in an instalment of the franchise that I didn’t like as much as the rest.
“That’s what love is, right?”
