To start, this isn’t an attack on fans of the Joker or the character itself. I’m not here to hate on anyone. That being said, I’ve always found some people’s “obsession” (for lack of a better word) with the Joker to be a bit peculiar and worrisome. I love him as a villian and advosary to Batman, but I find some people who like him as a character to a higher degree. I just can’t seem to understand it. Please don’t come in with the stereotypical response of “Every fandom have those who are obsessive and the Joker is like any other.” I feel like that’s just too easy and not reflective of this issue. There are people who like him as a person. I left my screening of Joker and heard some people who actually supported and agreed with the character. Which I don’t think that is what the film was going for (all of his actions are awful and inhumane). I’m curious, am I overreacting? Because I just can’t seem to understand that attraction to an awful character. Like I said, I get watching a movie and having a morbid curiosity as you follow a villian do their deed or commit crimes (Nightcrawler for example), but Joker just seems to be a little too far for some people? What are your guys’ thoughts? Have you noticed this too? Does it also worry you?
