Let me just start off by saying that my language is colourful in this post. I could edit it out but I want everyone to see just how ridiculous I found this when I saw it.
So, I accidentally clicked onto my Twitter timeline and I saw this:
I clicked onto her tweet and LAUGHED MY HEAD OFF.
“CURATED.”FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS?
I was really tickled pink.
That was before I saw what the unlucky (and stupid) fan will be paying for:
Is this a joke?
Swag, memorabilia and….Personal Polaroid pictures taken from set (why the addition of the word personal? Are they sending dick pics?).
You might as well save your $4k.
Not even a set visit? Fucking FaceTime? What if you don’t have an iPhone or iPad? That’s a serious question. So I have to find someone and borrow their device because I’ve paid four thousand dollars for a video call that’s usually free. Lol. Fuck outta here.
Although, anyone silly enough to drop four grand on this foolishness would probably buy an iPhone if they don’t have one already.
The sheer brazenness of these people is disgusting.
What’s a fan got to do to get some real face time, though? Donate a kidney (+ transportation and their own medical costs?)
The replies are full of people saying they can’t afford it because they’re:
- Not rich
- Paying for cons already
The last point had me rolling my eyes. None of these people have any common sense. They will be crying about con tickets while paying exorbitant prices. It was quite funny but sad at the same time.
WHERE IS THE LOGIC?
How can you complain when you have shown these people that you have bottomless pockets. Some of you will borrow money from people to spend one minute in the presence of these people and listen to them talk about their lives for two hours. Some of you will work multiple jobs to afford this shit. Some of you will complain after attending these things only to go again the next year.
One strategically tweeted #SPNFamily and everyone is rushing forward with open wallets.
All Jared and Jensen see is dollar signs. So excuse me for not having any sympathy.
What is wrong with you people?
Why are you entertaining this madness? You have been donating money to these people on a monthly basis for years now. Years. They will not stop taking your money until you stop giving them your money. Meanwhile, their money (mostly) isn’t going anywhere but the bank. The bank. Please have some respect for yourselves.
Like my friend put it:
Fools and their money. The guys probably came up with this scheme to pay for half of a teeth bleaching session.
Someone will have to tell me what the final bid was but $4k is probably what Genevieve spends on one ugly blouse per shopping session. Why would you donate money in the name of people who don’t value money in the first place. For all of the money fandom has collectively donated, how much have the guys and the wives donated? Have any of you demanded receipts?
Do any of you have at least one functioning brain cell?
If you do – please use it. I don’t really care, I just hate being exposed to such stupidity. Just seeing it makes my head hurt. If that makes me a hater, feel free to let me know. I will wear my title with pride.
Note to Jared and Jensen:
Please curate Supernatural’s cancellation charity raffle (at this point you might as well bleed fandom dry). Haven’t we all suffered enough? Let the show die a peaceful death already. Please.
To conclude: UGH.
