More David Cook Fan Fallout: With bonus photo! And evidence of post-blog unacceptable behavior?

March 23, 2009

First off, let me just say not all David Cook ultra-devotees are bad. Just a few. I don’t think anyone thinks less of Cook’s fans after reading his MySpace blog, which has apparently been picked up by several news outlets.

Personally, I’m hoping it opens the eyes to those who have no idea this sort of behavior goes on. Yes, grown women behaving badly. This is American Idol.

I like David Cook. Actually, I kind of think his public acknowledgement of these crazies was polite and a wise career move. Granted, I’ve never had a music career and really don’t want one. And I think I’ve only had like, 1-2 stalkers, in my lifetime. And one only did it in jest so I don’t think I can count that one. Anyway, I haven’t had any legitimate stalkers (to my knowledge) and I can’t sing for shit, but I can say I think its good one of these performers has come forward and publicly stated that there are some real batshit crazies out there doing insane things. With Idol’s “overnight success” format and “vote for your favorite” campaigns, these men leave the competition with rabid fans who delude themselves into believing they are owed something. Why? Because you know, they voted for them for hours, showered with gifts while following them on the summer tour, spammed their MySpace pages with song plays, blah blah blah…

And I suspect those “questionable” fans who are “allegedly” making it bad for everyone else are trying to push their way into tonight’s show, which is a student-only performance. Jesus Christ, whack jobs, can’t these guys have any peace and not have to worry about seeing you hogging up the front row?

Why do I think they’re still in stalking mode? Because everyone loves the Twitter!

@Kxxxxxxxx @txxxx i plan on kicking his ass next time ! Really anodyne in a barn and not a great music venue ? Nice (1 hr ago)

@Txxx did you get in ? (2 hrs ago)

Sounds to me like they’ve followed the band to their next venue and reporting back to those who aren’t lucky enough to be there with them. What do you think?

Ok, back to the “fan reaction” about Cook’s blog.

This woman hits the nail on the head.

I know for a fact that certain fans believe they are “friends” with the band, or they have told others this. So if that is the case, why are they forced to wait for half the day in line to get front row at the concerts? It seems like if they are real friends, DC or his band would be scoring them tickets and back stage passes.

As does her fellow David Cook fan…

I was at the show Friday night and unfortunately was sitting on the side of the stage were the “bunny” group was. I took over 100 pictures and in not 1 of them did I get David looking over my side of the stage. From my perspective, it seemed like he avoided that side of the stage all night. I spent so much of the night trying to get a good picture that I missed much of the show. I was really disappointed.

Now this silly Cook fan…why are you defending the behavior of these women in question? How do you know for a fact? Were you part of their posse?

The people they name in the photos are who they say they are, yes…but all it “proves” is they they were in the casino and one wearing a wig. they aren’t doing anything in the pics but talking to each other. so because they have “photos” everything they write is true?

You must know that the best lies are peppered with small truths in order to make them believable. i know for a fact they weren’t doing this stuff.

I agree it is quite the case for slander. unfortunately the damage is already done.

Blah blah blah. Everyone knows who Wig Girl is and I doubt she would have a case for slander at this point.

I remember seeing her at the Niagara Falls show. Her and her friends were monopolizing Neal at the casino bar, we finally interuppted when it was apparent that they were not going to acknowledge us or let us get a word in. He talked quite freely with us and for quite a while and also with some other fans who came along and we let them in.

Hmmm…and how would someone not following this band around the country NOT know what their tour buses looked like, especially since there have been numerous reports of them running into the guys at a rest stop.

David’s buses are not spray painted with his name on it. Rather, they are unmarked grey ryders. Who else but online fans who saw his Rowan Vlog or saw photos of his ryder know that?

So how would a non blogosphere fan happen to guess correctly what the color of David’s buses were or much less find them? And the idea that it his blog might be directed at *those* unnamed fans? Sorry, I don’t buy that for a NYC minute. Again, not accusing anyone here (on DCO), but there are too many holes in that collander for it to hold water. I’ve seen and heard enough on these message boards (not just DCO) to realize some of this disturbing behavior has been documented and photographed and tweeted by stalkers, who are very much on-line.

Yeah, it’s disturbing, all right. Everything about it.

Even without the blog, I think that it was coming. There have been enough concerns raised about people trying to find DC & the EEB in their bus or hotels that the tour threads now have a disclaimer barring psting of information as to the guys’ location. We’ve seen twitters from Ryan Star about OTT behavior. And there have been mutterings about pushy fans, etc., for some time. Barring DC and the EEB making themselves completely inaccessible, a backlash was coming.

And about those “Fuc Bunnies”. Seems they weren’t just acting like complete idiots in illuminated pink bunny ears — they were also complete assholes to other concertgoers.

on my cell but had to respond… it was bad.. they were in my section in the three rows ahead of me.. i have a pic of some of the ears lit up but have decided not to acknowledge them.. they were rude to everyone around them and acted like cookie was theirs.. and yes the sign spelled out fu*k.. andy was dying on stage horrified but laughing they were right in front of him.. seriously there were fans doing this who were old enoug to be his grandmother..

The sign-wielding bunnies obviously get a kick out of bad spelling.

You’re right but there were two sets of signs. I didn’t post about the first set. I believe the first set just said “We say Master you say Cook” or something like that (something more SANE? Or maybe not but I couldn’t see that one as clearly since it was bigger and I was watching DAVID). He sort of acknowledged that one with an “oookkkkaaayyy?” but then later they reused the signs for the “We masterbate” which is why masturbate is spelled incorrectly. Or maybe they just think that is how it is spelled. I saw it with my own two eyes as did my husband as we were directly behind them (but several rows back).

Here, this is a blurry shot, but you can see part of the We Masterbate sign. CLASSY.

    I just dont get it at all. How can anyone go over the deep end into obsession for some guy or girl that before idol was just some average joe working a job or some douche singing in a cover bad at a crappy bar? Before Idol David Cook was a nobody. Most chicks probably wouldnt have even given him more than a glance on the street. So now he’s on idol and made one album, one album! and now chicks are crying over him and stalking him. I just don’t understand. Someone help me understand. I’m a chick and yeah we have all had crushes, but i’ve never ever been anywhere near this loony! These are grown a** women with kids and married. Do they not have any lives? Are they ignored by their husbands or whatever? Over a year ago David Cook was no one and probably 5 years from now we all might be saying what happened to that guy? Look at Taylor Hicks for christ sakes! Fans were going nuts and now he can’t even get booked at a coffee shop!

    What a bunch of low class pigs. There are children that go to those concerts. Throwing their dirty soiled grannie panies and condemns on stage is sickening. Then to hoist nasty-ass signs like that shows they are a bunch of sick perverted degenerates.

      I so agree with you. Like any good Christian, I fully support the notion that feeling good about oneself, experiencing pleasure, and sex–especially sex–are all tools of Satan. If God wanted people to have fun, he would have made us all David Cook.

    Is “wig girl” she of the exploding vagina?

    Poor Cook. I like the guy so I don’t really enjoy the idea of him having to confront this insanity. These women are kind of revolting and I hate to think of them bothering Adam and Kris on this season’s tour. Maybe they’ll go for Danny. That would be nice.

    I went to one of David and the EEB’s early shows and it was absolutely great! None of this crap. Everyone was respectful and had a fantastic time. Come on girls get a grip. He is NOT going to marry you, he is NOT your new BFF. All he is going to do is put on one fabulous show. These people are going to ruin it for the real fans who are there to hear a really really good concert. The guys are better in person than on the CD. If this goes on the fans who stand respectfully for an autograph or a chance to say HI and tell the band how much they enjoy the music will be unable to do that. David has been very accommodating for meet and greets and has shown his availabity to the public on more than one occaison. Doc has already said something on his site banning lewd comments. Why should that even be neccessary. These guys have a grueling concert tour they need some private time. It just comes down to simple common courtesy and respect.

    If I want to go watch David Cook sing in concert, and not wear any pants while doing so, that’s perfectly fine and well within my rights as an American. I did that for Studdard’s brief run at the top too. With bells on and a mistletoe belt buckle. Minus that trip to that clinic afterward it was the best summer of my life.

    And I agree with everyone above about letting young kids see rock concerts at 10 p.m. It’s atrocious. They should be in the car in the parking lot with the windows cracked like all the other children. If it works for me when I’m at the bar for a few hours after work, then it works for concerts too. You think I can afford a sitter in this economy?

    Protip: Litter boxes make excellent temporary toilets. Just set it and forget it in the back seat, just like a Ronco rotisserie.

    As far as kids at the casino? I was wondering why there were kids at a 10pm Friday night rock concert on a college campus when I was there. People are stupid & they’re raising their kids to grow up to be entitled fat cows.

    I went to one of the early shows in WI & I didn’t see any bad behaviour (I think this is before the bunny ear unsanity), but I didn’t hang around afterwards with the tards. I enjoyed the concert & went back to our hotel. I have a life so I’m not constantly “plugged in” so just heard about all this shit going on. I like what I’ve seen of DC as a person. As wordly & savvy as he seems in interviews & such, I have this feeling that maybe he’s more naive than even he thought. I don’t doubt they encouraged this stuff at first because it was all new, but now I doubt he’s nothing but appalled at how far things have gone & maybe it is too late for a polite caution on his myspace page. I do blame 19E for not stepping in sooner because they most certainly HAVE been around the block, but they’ve already proved over & over that th3 almighty $ means more to them than anything. I’m pissed not because I’ll never meet him now (uh, never expected to anyway) but because his musical credibility is all but in the past all because some stupid entitled fat cows.

    Cook is a hypocrite, and so is 19 E. He sold out the minute he saw these SAME fans doing all kinds of disgusting acts on the summer tour and didn’t speak up about it THEN. As the American Idol winner, like it or not, he represents that franchise, and evidently it was more important to turn a blind eye to it, in order for 19E to keep the money coming in, and to string these disgusting people along long enough for them to buy his CD… Idol is supposed to be a family friendly show and tour, but how family friendly is it when the winner and 19E condone panty and condom tossing on stage, in front of young kids? Saw this with my own eyes. It is disingenuous and hypocritical for him and 19E to all of a sudden have a problem with what they have enabled. Get over yourself Cook.. you wanted it, you got it – now deal with it like a man.

      Why were there children at a casino?

    • March 24, 2009 1:44 pm

      David Cook is the motherfrakkin Messiah. And, as such, he was simply collecting all the world’s evil condoms and debacherous panties so that they would no longer corrupt the world.

      Didn’t you get the memo from the Pope last week? Condoms are the Devil’s tool, and should not be used by anyone, especially Africans, because they encourage sex for fun, which is a disgusting sin. “Protected sex” is just liberal spin, much like “global warming” is hippie fear mongering to get us all driving electric Zip Cars and eating organic.

      Like I said, David “The Jesus” Cook is doing the Lord’s work by accepting all those filthy rubbers and g-strings. As the last pure soul left on this great earth, he is the only person capable of handling so many tools of sin at once without being tempted. Hallelujah!

      This is all so obvious. What’s your problem? Sinner.

    I haven’t seen class like this since I took a stroll around the infield at the Kentucky Derby
