The original Stan ‘stanned’ over a picture of Christina Aguilera and the internet is delighted


The actor who played the character of Stan in the Eminem video of the same name has delighted Twitter after commenting on a picture of Christina Aguilera.

In the song and video, Stan is represented as an extreme fan of the rapper, which has subsequently given birth to the internet slang word ‘Stan’ for hardcore fandoms.


Yesterday, original Stan Devon Sawa posted this photo from Christina Aguilera’s Paper Magazine cover shoot with the accompanying caption “Um ….. @xtina….. wow.”

This prompted several Twitter users to point out the irony of seeing the character ‘Stanning’ over the singer.

However, Devon was not a huge fan of one of the posts, which featured a screenshot of his bio and a description of him as “the Stan that started stanning…”


He wrote: “That’s the worst bio of me ever!!! Flash Thompson on Spider-Man?!! that’s what I did? and that pic? What in the fuck?!!”

He then added: “I’ve got to explore the rest of the internet that’s doing me dirty.”

Earlier this month, Eminem released an extended version of his track ‘Nowhere Fast’ feat. Kehlani, originally featured on his new album ‘Revival’.

In the updated version, Eminem adds the lyric: “This whole country is going nuts / And the NRA is in our way / They’re responsible for this whole production / They hold the strings that control the puppets.”
