Fanboy Fail Friday – Molly Ringwald Edition
May 25, 2018
This week I went out for Molly Ringwald. I have a Breakfast Club poster that I need her to sign.
Now, I know, as do most collectors, that Molly is not a fan friendly celebrity, unless she is trying to hawk her awful CD. In that case, she may begrudgingly sign one extra item.
Molly was moderating an F.Y.C., and I thought that if there were only a couple of people waiting, she might break down and do it.
Oh, how silly of me.
I got to the venue and was joined by one other person.
Molly arrived, got out of the car, and I got as far as saying, “Mo” before she stuck out her hand out and flippantly said, “No thank you!”
It has now been two times this year a celebrity has put out his or her hand to shoo me away. Trent Reznor and Molly Ringwald. I don’t know, but I think there is a nicer way to turn fans down, especially when they are politely asking.
If you hate your fans so much, maybe it’s time to get out of the business. In all honesty, since I expected Molly not to do it, I just had to laugh. Until next time…
