We love fans who are super passionate about their fandom. It's great to totally geek out about something! We all absolutely have our unusual bits of trivia-knowledge, our fan theories, our alternate universes, our questionable fan-fic that features Capt. Jean-Luc Picard for some reason...we get it.
There are, of course, times a fan can take things to a weird place. Like really weird.
Take this guy, who has a Kylo Ren avatar, arguing about how not-hot the actor who plays Kylo Ren is as if it somehow personally offends him...
In his Twitter exchange, not-Kylo complained that he didn't understand why people thought Adam Driver looked like such a snack in the film.
"I don't get why everybody is making a big deal over this. It's not like he has an 8 pack and defined pecs. It's just a regular body. If you think that's the pinnacle of male fitness, you haven't been around any bodybuilders or people who work out. His stomach is flat. No biceps. Regular chest. Someone who eats well (not me) but has never worked out a day in his life. I'm just tired of everybody making a big deal about this. He looks like an average guy. He has no muscle. I'm not gay or anything, I just don't see how girls can swoon over this."
The account he commented on called him out for trying to tell women what they should be attracted to. Not-Kylo countered by saying women were entitled to be attracted to whoever and whatever they wanted. He then immediately doubled down by reiterating that Adam Driver doesn't have a muscular physique, as if that was the only thing women could be into even though he was just told by a woman that she didn't like overly muscular physiques.
Hes wrong too, you should have heard the gasps in my theatre when Kylo Rens tiddies got their showing. I am married to a big dude, 6 ft 3' but he is not in that shape, if he was I would not let him leave the house. Trust, that shit is hot dam.— Dame Kittness (@SoftKittyWarm) January 10, 2018
Lmao that comment that says “I ain’t ever seen a man like that in the wild” is everything 😂😂— Kylo Jen (@voicelessdreams) January 10, 2018

Clearly Adam Driver works out, or at least worked out before this film. I think he looks like he is in good shape, and this is actually what I would imagine Kylo would look like if he was a real person in a real SW Universe.

Is he actually saying that Adam Driver, an ex-Marine, has never worked out a day in his life?— Possum Gamer (@PossumGamer) January 10, 2018

-Adam Driver is a Marine Corps veteran
The genius of the Kylo Ren character is that sadly, there are so many real life Kylo Rens out there.— Flash Gordon Minute (@FlashGordonPod) January 10, 2018
Because a generation of guys who grew up w/ Star Wars and viewed themselves as a Han or a Luke grew up to be toxic, petulant temper tantrum throwing Kylos— Flash Gordon Minute (@FlashGordonPod) January 10, 2018
I love how fast we all turned around on Kylo after one film. Women now love him and sexually insecure dudes hate him, because he is them.— Porg Vader (@noobmaster117) January 10, 2018
