NYTimes Popcast: When Superfans Attack

The NYTimes Popcast examines what happens when superfans go on the attack. The episode was inspired by Nicki Minaj sending a nasty direct message on twitter to one pop culture writer who critiqued her current sound (the writer was WannasWorld - the twitter linked above).

The podcast looks at other examples of celebrities lashing out at mild criticism on social media (including Chance the Rapper) and also examines micro-stan armies that support C and D list celebrities. Janeé Bolden, Bobby Finger, Lindsey Weber, and Caryn Ganz all appear as guests on the episode.
