Considering Tom Holland is one of the sweetest celebrities of all time (who remembers when he saved that fan from a crowd of autograph hunters?!), fans were left pretty confused on Tuesday, May 5, when they noticed that “#TomHollandIsOverParty” was trending online! So what gives? Did the actor do something wrong? Why did fans attempt to “cancel” the Spider-Man star? Well, we decided to investigate, and it turns out, the trend actually had nothing to do with Tom at all!
For those who don’t know, Fancams are compilation videos made by a fan that shows various clips of their idol doing interviews, performing at concerts and/or meeting fans. Get this, you guys — someone actually started the “Tom Holland Is Over” trend in an attempt to promote one of their fancam videos! That’s right, Twitter user @pattinstoned was reportedly the one to initiate the hashtag, so that a fancam of Brad Pitt that they made could get some more attention.
As fans know, Tom isn’t the only star to get “canceled” recently. Just last week, trolls trended “#ColeSprouseIsOverParty” after rumors hit the web that he had cheated on his girlfriend, Lili Reinhart, with model Kaia Gerber. But the actress was quick to shut these rumors down and defend her beau, writing in a series of now-deleted tweets, “Twitter is such a vile place. It’s so easy to say s**t behind your f**king phone, isn’t it? This is why people choose to keep their relationships private… This is why people don’t have social media… because of this bullying,. I don’t tolerate any of that s**t. Bully me? Sure, fine. But attacking someone for literally no reason, just for the sake of a f**king twitter trend? Please… Reassess yourself and your ego before you send another tweet into the abyss.”
“It’s easy to criticize someone and spew hate because it makes you feel like you have some sort of power over them,” she continued. “Truth is… You don’t. Saying you hate someone or don’t like them gives you absolutely no power over them. You need to tweet about someone you literally don’t know in order to feel like you have something going on in your life? That’s sad. It’s really f**king sad. You want to feel validated or important? Attacking someone online won’t give that to you. Do something helpful with your time and be better.”
Back in April, fans also attempted to “cancel” Demi Lovato after alleged screenshots from her rumored private Instagram account made their way around the web, and they contained a lot of shade towards Selena Gomez in them. But it didn’t bother the “Sober” singer in the slightest!
“I’ve been canceled so many times that I can’t even count,” the 27-year-old explained to Jameela Jamil on her “I Weigh” podcast. “The hashtag, ‘#DemiIsOverParty,’ that whole thing it’s just, like, it doesn’t even affect me anymore. It’s not real, I don’t think that anybody was ever officially canceled, otherwise certain people wouldn’t have Grammys today, certain people wouldn’t have Oscars and certain people wouldn’t be where they are in their positions.”
