Entertainment with real world consequences
Spot on! I have long said that whilst one has a duty to all they impact; one’s responsibility, thus influence, starts with theirselves before extending out:
Sort your self out, then your family, friends, communities, and outwards.
Anything else encourages externalising that falls into a passive, childish, and miserable mindset. This fawning allegiance to completely removed and disinterested characters exemplifies that point; naive at best, it’s negative entertainment.
