          I’ve considered leaving the fandom before many, many times. It’s literally the worst one that I’ve ever been in. Over all my six years of being in the 5sos “fam”, I have never wanted to leave as much as I do now. I know people say this a lot jokingly, but right now, I hate it here.
          
          I’ve grown out of fandoms at a normal rate before, but today, something snapped in me that just made me rethink everything that’s happened with 5SOS up to this point. The respect that I had for certain people has either lessened or disappeared completely.
          
          It feels like I’ve been in some kind of haze for that past few years and in a matter of hours, I’m suddenly seeing the true colors of this fandom and even the band.
          
          I’m really…disappointed to say the least and my heart hurts. For the longest time, I really thought that this fandom would be a safe space for everyone. Now, people are turning against each other all at once and it’s hard for the actual good ones to handle.
          
          I don’t *want* to leave the fandom per se. I’ve grown up with this band and I’m really scared to let it go. I don’t know what I would do after leaving the fandom if I decide to. It’s been such a b part of my life for so long that I really wouldn’t know where to go from there. 
          
          Throughout the day, I’ve been kind of analyzing the culture and behavior of the people who are fans of this band and have been disgusted with what I saw. There are people on Twitter invalidating and ridiculing those who this affected the most and it’s some of the saddest shit that I’ve ever seen.
          
          The only thing we can do at this point is wait it out and see what happens from here but it doesn’t seem like the final result will be a good one.

@michaelsaesthetic Yeah, I know that every fanbase has bad eggs in one way or another, but it’s becoming harder to find genuinely good people. Also, thank you so much, love. You’re really sweet too❤️

@hooddisconnected It’s honestly stressful when it doesn’t have to be.
