Neil Gaiman on Fan Entitlement

Neil Gaiman calls a fan out on his entitlement issues.

He’s very, very right about everything he says. As fans, we can get so wrapped up in something that we forget there are real people behind these stories with real lives and, you know, autonomy and their own ideas and stuff. I admit I was a little disappointed in some parts of the final Harry Potter book, but I hope I never came across in my criticisms of it with this kind of entitlement. If I did, I am sorry for it. This is an excellent reminder from someone on the other side of the fence.
