If there's three things that I've learned during my time at BuzzFeed, it's that The Dress is white and gold, the fitness tea the Kardashians hawk on Instagram isn't as bad as it sounds, and you should never EVER fuck with stan accounts on Twitter.
Stan wars — when different stan groups get in fights online — are pretty much a fact of life in 2017. Remember when straight icon Ed Sheeran quit Twitter a week ago? That was because of Little Monsters!
So it didn't surprise me when I came across a total stan bloodbath on Twitter the other day. At this point, I'm used to it. What DID surprise me was who was fighting who. This wasn't Navy vs. Hive, or Britney fans vs. Gaga fans. Oh no. It was something much, much crazier.
It was a fan account for The Sims — YES, THE COMPUTER GAME — that was getting attacked by a Fifth Harmony/Camila Cabello stan. It all started when @TheSimCommunity tweeted out a link to "The Sims Through the Years":
Then, things got messy when @cc1vinyl — a stan account for Fifth Harmony, Dinah Jane (5H member), and Camila Cabello (former 5H member) stepped into the ring with this bold statement:
Then, The Sims account clapped back hard, bringing up Camila's single "Crying in the Club" which...hasn't charted well.
The 5H/Camila account retaliated quickly...
...but you know The Sims account wasn't going to stay quiet for long.
What's hilarious about this whole ordeal is...you can't REALLY logically compare computer game sales against album sales.
Like...they're two totally different mediums!
But, I've got to give it to both accounts...
...they came ready to fight...
...with a PURSE full of receipts!
Like, can we get these two masterminds hired for like, the FBI or NSA or something? We'd all feel a lot safer in their hands.
Things LOOKED like they had simmered down for a moment when The Sims account acknowledged that they actually were a fan of "Crying in the Club"...
...but when another user also acknowledged Tove Lo was in their top played, the 5H/Camila account stepped over one boundary too many, and was CLOCKED.
Of course, other people were LIVING for the fact that two random accounts were going at it online...
...like, they were SHOOK. THIS IS WHAT TWITTER WAS INVENTED FOR!
Some thought that The Sims had the last laugh...
...because they were pouring up a PIPING mugful of Earl Grey tea.
In the end though...how COULD there be any real losers in this fight? IT WAS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.
(Even though the 5H/Camila account admitted it might have all been in jest...)
Anyway, that's that on that! Have a good one, y'all.
