Stereotypes then, huh?
Well Anne Rice is also a shitty, talentless, and obnoxious hack that writes horrible bits of glorified fanfiction known as 'The Vampire Chronicles' which is incredibly sad because that means it's so immeasurably shitty to be considered pulp.
The film was only made tolerable by the great acting of Brad Pitt and devout Scientologist, Tom Cruise.
The sexy Latino accent of Antonio Bandaras also greatly contributed, seducing every soccer mom and their kitten out of their panties in a record 0.5 seconds.
European scholars have considered the work an alternate universe where Dracula had a spiffy homosexual son with some French hooker, but fled to evade the Van Helsing Child Support Agency.
American scholars didn't bother reading it because anything with the word 'French' in its name immediately reduces to complete shit. Proven F4X ppl.
The fanbase consists majorily of morbidly obese teenage girls who could never find a man desperate enough to bone them, even when they gave the tempting offer of pretending to be Moby Dick while their partner violently probed her vageroo with a veiny throbbing harpoon (not so witty metaphor for a penis) as Captain Ahab;
seeing as they completely failed at every facet of life and would never be deserving of the love of another human (even nonhumans shouldn't have to endure such torture), they retreated into the realm of fiction where they spend the rest of their days masturbating to mediocre fanfics on fanfiction.net,
mostly containing Louis and Lestat homolust because fangirls have the twisted desire to distort all fictional works and see their characters have disgusting, trashy, and completely out of character anal sex (preferably rape).
Lestat fans are distinguished by their vulgar and offensive stench that consist of fast food, body odor radiating from unwashed merch tees, stale mastubatory fluids, fruit scented lube, and copious amounts of foaming at the mouth. Insult the series and they would be prepared to duel infidels to the death for their transgressions.
Fear not, overexposure to the glorified fanfictions of Anne Rice have distorted their view of reality -- they are under the impression that they are actual vampires so stakes and crucifixes will do well here.
Notice how the fanbase diss goes either way?
