Fans in the News – December 2015

Okay, let’s get this out of the way. So this happened: a Walking Dead fan bit Norman Reedus at a Walker Stalker Con event. She is aware her behavior was out of control and she regrets it, and she has also been banned for life from Walker Stalker events. The talent at these conventions are people, like you or I. Even hugging people without asking if it is okay first is odd – please, do not ever bite a celebrity.

Here are some happier things from December: If you love Disney culture and are looking for someone to share your life with, why not check out MouseMingle? In the spirit of the holidays, actor Arnold Schwarzenegger from Christmas themed movie “Jingle all the Way” reached out to a fan who is on his death bed via Reddit. Finally, the MLB is recommending that netting be placed in certain areas of baseball stadiums so less fans are injured by foul balls – that is a home run of an idea!
