i have seen a few of these fb famous people, i find it really weird. they are obviously very egocentric but the ones i find weird are the people who follow them, rather than the fame whores themselves... i just thing... WHY are you following this person? why are you such a saddo? get on with your own life!
I dunno about Facebook/Twitter famous, but I know a fair few 'Tumblr famous' people, and whilst a few of them are genuinely just follower whores, most of them seem to be pretty nice people who genuinely post good stuff and therefore have a lot of followers. There's always a degree of whorishness about it, but this is almost always enabled/encouraged by the followers, IMHO.
I can't stand it especially the ones that are constantly needing attention by posting videos of themselves e.g. Drinking piss or eating their own poo christ sake people have no self respect and dignity...
Whatever your feelings, there's no need to resort to physical assault.
What of the YouTube famous?
i know a 'fb' famous person at my school. it is so strange as he has 50k followers and more, yet at school noone pays him any attention.
whats the most worrying thing is that this kid is in year 8 and 17year old girls are commenting on his photo saying how hot he is!?
I despise seeing these sorts of people all over my newsfeed every single day, it seems to be the Facebook famous more than anything, a few of the Tumblr famous people are actually nice people who post decent stuff to get so many followers, whereas on Facebook it's just pointless arguments and 'banter' which causes even more trouble.
I completely agree with you, WHY are people obessed with these Facebook famous people? Their followers act like they're God when in reality they're cretinous creatures. I've seen them in Manchester, and people surround them! Why, oh why? They're nothing special.
I had the displeasure of meeting the Jake McManus featured in OP's video and all I can is he's an egocentric c*nt. The funny thing is these people are going to amount to nothing as they let their 'fame' take over their lives, quite a large majority of them even stopped education because they got abused/harassed. Where are they going to be in 5 or 10 years time when everyone has moved on to University and work and has forgot about them? Absolutely nowhere.
Who's the guy that got cream thrown on him?
