Reports Of Bruce Rejecting His Fans At Book Signing's
So take these next two stories for what its worth. I questioned myself on whether or not to post these next two stories but then I thought about it, if its happening, I shouldn't hide the truth and pretend like it never happend. So I'm getting a few e-mails today from some Bruce fans who are reading about their fellow bloggers talking about their negative experiences at Bruce booksignings. Has Bruce let his fans down? Well the first article comes from from a guy named Tommy, whose blog about his Bruce book signing(or lack their of) can be viewed here, and here is an excerpt from the blog:
"It turns out that Bruce isn't exactly who I thought he'd be. I had the "pleasure" of standing about 8 feet away from his signing table as my friend took pictures. I listened to how he greeted his fans and also watched him call theater staff over several times to scold them about his "rules". As it turns out, Mr Campbell, HUGE mega-star that he is (not) did not want ANYONE who did not purchase a fifteen dollar copy of his book to even get near him. If you didn't buy a book, stay the [expletive] away from the table! A couple people that just had their books signed tried to get beside him for pictures at which time he lightly pushed them away and said "What are you doing? Uh uh. No posed pictures" and pointed to the exit with a "There's the way out. Thanks for coming"".
When I read this, I said to myself "No, this can't be Bruce". So then I quietly brushed off the blog, and then I got an email from another Bruce fan saying she read a blog about an individual having a bad experience at a Bruce book signing and that I should post the story. So here is an excerpt from the blog of an individual named Jamison, whose blog can be viewed here, and here is an excerpt from his blog:
"We'd gotten there early and got a good place in line, and me and cole were one of the first people up. Even though this was a book signing, I didn't bring the book, I already got'em signed last summer. Instead I brought my brand new Brisco County Junior Box set of DVDs. Big mistake. The staff from powells books told me I had to have the book to get something signed, and I told them I already had my books signed, which is why I didn't have them, to which they replied if I wanted something signed I'd have to go buy another book[from their convinent stock on hand]. '[Expletive] them' I thought, The Brisco County on DVD was promoted on his website at the same time as the directors cut book, I didn't think Bruce would care. So me and Cole walk up and I shake the Mans hand. Cole lays down his book and poster, and I put down Brisco. Without any worthy acknowledgements to us Bruce grabs Cole's book, looks at the sticky note they had ready and starts to sign it. As he's (hurriedly)finishing that, I quickly explain I already went to both signings last time in portland, and requested a quick picture. "Nope." "Just a quick photo-?" "No." He interrupts. "Or else [motioning to the staff managing the line] they'll cut your dick off." Then he explained he wouldn't sign Brisco County if I didn't have a book, and wished us on our way. Strike three. Bruce Campbell has rejected his real fans who made him famous for a bunch of fucking poser consumer whores who shop at [Expletive] hot topic"
So take those two stories for what you want. I have never met or seen Bruce in my life, hopefully one day I will. So for any of you that have went to the book signing this past month, I want to hear your experiences and please tell if their are more negative stories out their or positive stories out there that contradict the latter. Bruce was built by his fans, I'm distruaght that he let some of them down and I hope its not an ongoing issue. I love Bruce to death, and I still do, but if something like the past 2 stories happended to me, I would be pretty let down. Comment below to engange in the discussion.
Please no one send me hate mail. I'm just the supplier of news. Bruce is still my hero.
