This isn’t a complete thought, but conversations about fans ruining something or being over-zealous feeds into this unfortunate tendency to look down on people who are really passionate or vocal about liking something, which I think is not cool.
Most of the people shitting on fans of Game of Thrones or Breaking Bad or Rick and Morty are people who just don’t care about the show and are tired of hearing about it, which is fine, but don’t spend your time laughing at and discouraging people from talking about or sharing their thoughts. As for people who like the show but don’t like the fanbase, just don’t engage with it? Don’t go on the subreddit, mute it on Twitter, whatever you gotta do. It’s never that serious.
That said, chill with the nugget sauce nonsense, barbecue sauce is a delicious plan b that will always be there for you in times of crisis
