Who Is Larry Shippers?

We all know how passionate One Direction fans are — but are some of them so extreme that they’d actually harm themselves over the boy band?

One Direction fans are very upset about the new documentary, Crazy About One Direction, which they say makes Directioners look like they’re “insane” and “psychos.”After the show aired in the UK on August 15, #RIPLarryShippers began trending on Twitter, along with claims that some fans took their own lives after seeing the documentary. So who is Larry Shippers and what does he have to do with One Direction? Read on for more details about this very strange — and potentially dangerous — phenomenon.

Who Is Larry Shippers? — Did 1D Fans Commit Suicide Over Documentary?

Apparently the name Larry Shippers represents a surprisingly significant subset of 1D fans who believe bandmates Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson are in a romantic relationship. If you think that’s weird, listen to this: rumors are now circulating that 42 fans have committed suicide over Larry Shippers.

Apparently there’s a lot of tension between Larry Shippers and 1D fans who support Louis’ relationship with his girlfriend, Eleanor, and both groups frequently accuse each other of cyber-bullying, according to the Daily Dot.

Is it possible the cyber-enemies of Larry Shippers are behind these rumors?

One Direction Fans Tweet About Larry Shippers Suicides

Dozens of Directioners have been tweeting about fellow fans committing suicide over the documentary, and while it’s possible there were suicides caused by bullying and threats to Larry Shippers fans, there is no evidence of any actual deaths.

The Daily Dot reports:

After some investigation, we were only able to find the Twitter accounts of three fans who are alleged to have taken their own lives: @LovinLarry17, @larrystylincum_, and @harryisatwerk. But while none of these three fans have tweeted in the past twelve hours, there’s nothing to suggest that this isn’t a case of “pseuicide” (“killing” or deleting an online persona), a phenomenon that one sees fairly often in online fandom.

Phew! Let’s hope that’s all it is. Be careful out there, Directioners! The internet can be a scary place.

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are Larry Shippers really committing suicide or is it just a case of pseuicide?

liking a boyband doesnt make you insane. this is a v disgusting article and id really love an apology on behalf of every one direction fan. thats like saying just bc you like a certain musician you are due at the loony bin i hope the writer of this article learns to respect other people and who they like. its not unheard of for a teenage girl to be in love with a group of hot guys. its just like when the beatles were around, this isnt a new thing. boybands have been around for ages and yall are acting like this is something totally new. i wish everyone would just leave us the hell alone and just let us do what we please. what we do on social media and at concerts is none of anyones concern especially people like you. if you dont like it, do get on, dont read what we say, and dont attend anything one direction related. the day the beatles broke up girls were killing themselves so why is it such a crime to kill yourself bc the whole world thinks youre insane anyways.

I really hope there is no such thing as Larry Shippers and plus Louis and Harry are both straiter than a line so people should just stop saying that they are gay because they are not and those fans are not crazy and they sre not psychos so leave them alone they r just excited and as a pre-teen i would know because i am a directioner they just have the one direction infection so stop messing with them and leave them alone becaues you wouldn’t like if anyone was talking about you.

That’s really sad I hope fans didn’t kill themselves over this and I don’t believe that Harry and Louis are gay I just think they try to be funny. I also believe that this is part of what inspired the song Diana because it is protecting suicidal fans and all of the fans from the bad in the world. For any of you fans that are insecure about yourselves, don’t be. Remember, it’s about you. Not about the horrible people who make you miserable just stay true to yourselves. I love One DIrection and they’re fans are the best in the world!

Don’t Larry Shippers even want to know what Harry and Louis think? They always say they’re NOT in a relationship, and as true fans do you want to be with 1D instead of against? Just stop and think about 1D, It’s them not you. They’re the ones possible in/out of a relationship not you!

Of course they didn’t! Within 2 hours of the documentary airing they were claiming 14 people had committed suicide. So with things taken into account such as parents discovering the bodies, paramedics being called, being taken to hospital, stomachs being pumped etc and then grieving parents going straight online to post about it (as we know grieving parents clearly always do…) this could not have happened and circulated in 2 hours! Plus its almost 2 days later and no names have been released, no confirmations of any kind, and all the accounts who apparently did it have had activity in the past few hours. Its just a group of stupid young girls trying to get attention for getting bad publicity.

Yeah your right. But what I don’t get is why teenage girls are ‘killing themselves over a couple of guys.

It’s not just over “a couple of guys”. It’s over being looked down on for what you believe in. I myself am a Larry shipper. If you saw the hate that we get for believing that two people are in love with each other, then maybe you’d understand. It’s not just the larry shippers who get hate, but we do get hated on quite a bit. And half the time it’s not just saying that ‘Larry Stylinson’ isn’t real. People out there have said that Larry shippers should just kill themselves. I wish I could explain how upset it makes me knowing that a few members of my family could’ve taken their lives because of cyber-bullying. And it was all just because they believed in something.

WTF!
This is why I don’t let my child use Social Media!
There is some crazy @$$! stuff out there.
Keep your kids off the Social Media sights people. It has no place in their lives, and just invites crap like this into your home.
You can’t watch them 24/7, but at least if they can’t access it, that would be one less thing you have to worry about.
This world is so messed up!
