Why Do Harry Styles Fans Hate Olivia Wilde?
It will never be easy Harry Styles‘ girlfriend.
We’ve seen what happens to women who dare to date with international hearts over the past few decades, and little has changed. However, no one will blame wilderness for marveling at the sheer vicissitudes of certain subsets of the Internet when it was revealed that she had paired up with Styles after the shoot their movies Don’t worry, honey. Actress-director who was previously in a long-term relationship with Jason Sudeikishas been heavily criticized on social media and conspiracy-related gossip blogs for her affair.
Take a glance at social media and you’ll see an alluring and overwhelming rage toward Wilde, ranging from petty to outright dangerous.
When the news first surfaced last January, Wilde was forced to restrict comments on her Instagram page after she was inundated with negative messages. As noted by BuzzFeed, Wilde said she should be “ashamed” of herself for “stealing” Styles and that their relationship was “shameful.” Some fans, especially the Styles vocalist, accused her of being a bad mother when she abandoned her children to marry a new boyfriend. Tags Tumblr #fauxlivia is home to much of this, as well as allegations that Wilde is “fake”, a “leech” and only with Styles for attention.
Nude pictures are constantly being posted with body comments and more embarrassing whores. One intimate video showing a woman who appears to be Wilde (authenticity has never been confirmed) went viral on social media, shared by Styles-obsessed people. She has to face immensity epochism and then accused of grooming him because of their ten-year age gap (forgetting the fact that Styles wasn’t a kid and is now over 30).
Themes have been put together provided completely detailed “Evidence” of Wilde’s various wrongdoings, listing everything from stale tweets to “black face because it looks so tan in a photo session. She was also criticized for wearing a James Brown t-shirt, just like he was accused of domestic violence against his wife.
A blog claims she “attracts offenders” because she has worked with or been photographed near the likes of Kevin Spacey and Brett Ratner. Exceptionally cruel viral tweets deftly claims that Wilde “gives off Amber Heard-like vibes,” evoking the recent hate campaign against the latter as a reason to doubt their latest target.
One Article about the Defamer in 2015 about Harvey Weinstein claimed that Weinstein had “proposed a three-man game” with a model “between the two of them and Olivia Wilde” in exchange for acting work. This was weaponized by many style fans as evidence that Wilde either collaborated with Weinstein or was a predator on his own scale. Hashtags with # #timesupolivia was used to spread the most insidious hate, including repeatedly comparing Wilde to a sexual predator and positioning Styles as her victim. These people prefer to imagine their idol as a traumatized prisoner rather than an autonomous being.
It’s worth noting that so many Styles fans have spoken out in support of Wilde, condemning the abuse and condemning the tactics that were used to hurt her. The anger this subset expresses is not a manifestation of the beliefs of the entire fandom. Usually, they are a minority that, despite being an extremely loud and well-organized group, attracts most of the attention. Such responses, however, can all speak to how people in the public eye engage in a fan battle where the scoring columns are always on the move.
For his part, Wilde did not directly discuss these attacks and has kept his relationship with Styles, unsurprisingly, fairly private. What she is experiencing is, alas, not a new phenomenon. Name a famous couple in Hollywood lore of the last century and it won’t take long to find outrageous acts of bullying directed at one of them, usually a woman, from Elizabeth Taylor to Cybill Shepherd to Angelina Jolie and more. Wilde, in this sense, joins a “proud” lineage of shamed women. But in an age of social media and increasingly blurred lines between celebrity and fan, it’s hard to ignore the concrete volume of what she’s up against.
The hostility towards Wilde is a two-way demonstration of how celebrity relationships inspire some kind of fan anger: one, there’s a typical misbehavior of a celebrity. women are daring to date a male star who is loved by the majority of female fans; and two, there are conspiracies surrounding the star that say he is actually in a secret relationship with another person. In this case, Styles was the subject of numerous baseless claims that he was in a long-term partnership with former One Direction member Louis Tomlinson.
The Larry Stylinson’s Theory motivated many fans, with micro-analyzed videos as proof of their secret love, which is shrouded in darkness by the hidden power of Simon Cowell, their record label. and the shadowy force is only called “PR”. Despite the fact that One Direction is on an indefinite hiatus and Tomlinson has a son with a former partner, the plot has never stopped. Tomlinson even lamented the way back to 2012 that paranoia put a strain on his and Styles’ friendship, but his pleas for fans to stop only fueled their fantasies.
Any woman who dares to step in the middle of this imaginary love must face harsh consequences. And again, this is not unique to Olivia Wilde, who has been accused of being latest beard or an evil woman with whom he is forced to go public with a romance. Such conspiracies are now surprisingly common in many fandoms.
And again, the lion’s share of this cruelty is directed at the woman in the relationship. Consider how Benedict Cumberbatch’s wife, director Sophie Hunter, has been the subject of ludicrous conspiracy claims by claiming that she has trapped her famous husband in a loveless marriage with the the child is not his or his own. realistic doll. Singer Branches of FKA spoke candidly on social media about the racism and perversion she endured while dating Robert Pattinson from fans who believed he was getting married. Sunset co-star Kristen Stewart. Amelia Warnercomposer’s wife 50 shades of gray star Jamie Dornan, has faced similar vile treatment from his fans and those convinced his true love co-star Dakota Johnson. Look for celebrity couples of any kind and chances are it’s the woman who gets all the hate.
There are rare exceptions to this. Recently, pictures of actress Florence Pugh enjoying a vacation with former Midsommar co-star Will Poulter has led to a frenzy of excitement from her fans, who have theorized that she left her partner Zach Braff for f.uture Adam Warlock. Pugh called out her fans for “emotional abuse, horrible behavior and basically bullying” on her Instagram page, and she was forced to respond again. to disprove Poulter’s claims. That hasn’t stopped people from making cruel comments about Braff, even if Pugh declared“Regardless of your opinion on who I should or shouldn’t be with, at the end of the day if you compliment someone by trolling someone else… you’re just bullying.”
The offensive tactics faced by these celebrities are very similar across the board. The same arguments are used over and over: looking at body language is clearly uncomfortable and hides the truth; it’s all a nefarious scheme forced on them by an evil PR company; their true love is waiting for the right moment to reveal everything; and all of these are extremely complicated and secret things that only a few smart enough fans can see through. That’s certainly a more artistic justification for garden-like hatred than just admitting you don’t like that person’s partner.
Nowadays, it seems displeased by fans simply saying they don’t like someone’s other half. Instead, they provide justifications that depend on claiming their goal is “problematic”.
Wilde and Braff were positioned as predators for dating younger people. She must secretly become the worst person in the world, a callous manipulator that keeps Styles away from his true love. Her “crimes,” whether they’re real or made up of outright evil conjecture, are listed and shared like a rap, and anyone wondering about this tactic must. fully support every terrible thing that ever happened. In an atmosphere of hostility like this, there was no way for Wilde to simply be herself, let alone Harry Styles’ girlfriend. Women like her are turned into almighty villains who can do anything by this hatred, while their favorites are turned into lifeless toys defined by almost the same level of pain.
Celebrities unfortunately must consider the most astonishing acts of cruelty an occupational hazard. Part of being famous is being forced to let complete strangers treat every aspect of your life as fair game for smearing, misunderstanding, and fiction of the hardest kind to explain. The whole concept of celebrity encourages the public to cast their own ideas, concerns, and fantasies on others, until they are less people than they are the vehicle for speech. When the fantasy is broken, many people are angry at the person who forced them back into reality.
Olivia Wilde is one of many people who have experienced this rampage, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to end anytime soon. The faces may change but the cycle will continue.
