Pop-culture fandom is an fascinating beast. Some folk are pretty cool and take things as they come while others are the complete opposite and will come after you with pitchforks over any little thing they deem as incorrect in their eyes regardless of whether it’s rational or not.
Marvel fans are generally pretty cool, especially when the Avengers: Endgame tidal wave hit, but some have taken things too far when they decided to target Lexi Rabe, the 7-year-old actress who plays Tony Stark‘s daughter, Morgan.
When Lexi found success following Endgame‘s release, she started getting bullied online by trolls for some inexplicable reason. It eventually got to the point where her mother, Jessica, shared a video of Lexi explaining her actions and a long message asking people to stop.
Okay, her “I love you 3000” sign off is simply adorable.
But far more importantly, this whole bullying saga steps well over the line and this video shouldn’t have been needed in the first place. She’s just a 7-year-old kid trying to live a normal life in a crazy world. Someone that young should never have to explain herself in such a way, especially to a horde of entitled fans.
Props must also be given to Lexi’s parents for doing the best they can with such a wild situation.
You’re not a Marvel fan if you think bullying a 7-year-old is okay just because she didn’t live up to your expectations or didn’t give you an autograph. You’re nothing more than a dick who deserves to be put in the bin.
