Negative people leave a bigger impact on a fandom. Those few negative comments leave the biggest impression on others, and people will come to the conclusion that all Inner Circles are pessimistic and disrespectful…. not the kind, happy, understanding, amazing fandom that we are.
Ultimately, it’s your choice. The only one that can control your conduct is you. So just ask yourself two things: What kind of fan do you want to be? What kind of impression do you want to leave of Inner Circles?
Come on now.
So the only two emotions that the inner circle can feel is amicable happiness, or raging anger? What about the people in between? What about the people who like both Winner and Ikon, but are afraid to express how fair/unfair YG’s promotional tactics and words have been? What about the people who see both sides of this situation, like both teams and don’t really know what to support/how to react? What about the people who acknowledge Team B’a talent but still don’t think YG has been fair? And what about the Winner fans that just do not care about Team B at all? Do they have to be excited about Ikon too?
Look, I (sort of) feel you. It can be hard to stan a group if the people around you are angry. It’s difficult, I know, trust me, I considered leaving too. But to generalize a fandom and create two distinct cliques of good and evil, to create a post where reasons are left unexplained and unexamined is also not progressive. You make the “bad fans” seem like they are angry for no reasons stated, but please keep in mind that you also make the “good fans” look happy, still with no reasons stated. People have different reasons to be upset, or to be happy, but everybody has different opinions. Read into those reasons, try to see from another’s perspective, before you make baseless and on-the-surface assumptions about whether the fan is “good” or “bad”. I know for a fact that there are many fans who think this is unfair, but do not bash (as suggested happens in your drawing). There are many well-justified reasons for anger, and you can disagree with them, but please don’t police somebody’s opinions “for the sake of fandom”. Being in a fandom is, believe it or not, a personal experience before it is a collaborative one.
