I was just wondering why some people on the internet do this. It happened during season 1 of Crystal and it happened with the live action Death Note movie. :sad: What on Earth possesses some fans to do this? Plus, can't you end up in jail if you send threats to celebrities on twitter or facebook?

To be quite honest I don't think you can go to jail for death threats, or at least not immediately. As to why I don't really know since I've felt the need to. From what I can see though is that it would have to take a lot of anger and hatred for a person to want to threaten death, never mind carrying out such threats, so that at least is a start - people normally need to be taken to such an extremely in order to achieve extremist behavior. As for bullying you'll have to ask a bully face to face that question.
I did in fact experience peer pressure as a young boy to bully another kid and the experience was awful; after it I immediately felt upset and remorseful and kept on apologizing because it just wasn't me.

Crystal production/staff received threats? :shocked: Do you have a source?

From a legal/law enforcement perspective:

Making threats is a serious offense. If someone threatens you with violence and the threat is credible, law enforcement will view the threat as a crime and the agressor will face criminal charges. Depending on the seriousness of the threat, a victim can pursue a civil harassment restraining order.

As for celebrities, well, it's obvious that they have to take extra precautions because some of their fans are plain crazy. However, many celebrities who hate one another use platforms like Twitter to cause disturbances and their fans often end up getting into trouble as a result of their actions.

Why do some fans bully and/or send threats to celebrities? Because they're possessive and obsessed. That is, they're not true fans, just madmen who don't want to share their toy.

You do realize that years ago, a forum member went out of her way on Twitter to harass the editor of Kondasha USA branch of the Sailor Moon manga?

As for Crystal I remember when Munehisa Sakai was the director that some "fans" were harassing him on twitter to the point that he had to start blocking people. Also, threats are usually taken very seriously. Imagine if someone posted on the President's twitter that they wanted to kill him, there's no chance that that would slide. :o

Thx for reminding that - now I remember. lol

I might understand why Takeuchi tends to be so low key over the years. :)

people hate on Adam Driver just because he plays Kylo Ren the evil dude in the new Star Wars.

So the character's face should've been covered/hidden entirely all the time like Vader (while he was evil) in the previous Episodes. lol
