    WHY DO FANS BUY REMEMBRANCE ITEMS

    Banned
    was just wondering as my missus is a fan of a celebrity that has died and i was looking for stuff of him to buy for christmas and there is loads of RIP things like mouse mats keyrings t shirts coaster so on and so on

    so obviously people buy them but why they are not official and the money doesnt go to their families, so fans buy these things as a keep sake or something to remember them by and they buy from people making money on the back of the very person they are mourning, its very strange and very sad

    Is it MJ?

    Yes it is very strange, none of it is done on behalf of the celeb

    no its not mj, i do find it weird because my missus saw something she said she wanted and i think it makes her not a fan at all. fans do download films and albums and some buy pirated media but i still class them as fans really as they are just trying to save money but to buy something thats fills the pocket of someone thats coining it in on the back of their idols death not really fans me thinks anyway

    Whats worse is when certain companies/football clubs etc cynically exploit a tragedy for financial and advertising gain.

    I honestly dont know what to say it is a weird one, only thing i can think of is that something to remember him/her by.

    But its not really being a fan if your paying for someone else who is milking it
