    Default Is calling someone an HK fanboi an insult?

    So I posted a picture of 2 HK coffee cups wit a Tapco Assault Rifle ... mentioned my wife had put my regular cup in the dishwasher and I picked out these three to choose from and chose the HK International Training cup ...
    He commented something to the effect of: HK because they are second to none.
    I replied with “spoken like a true HK Fanboi”
    He came back with an homophobic slur (which I’m straight and my FB photo is of me, my wife & daughter)
    And the conversation went down hill from there ... I kept telling him I’m not debating with you, I’m out and he kept insulting me ... turns out he was the admin and when I didn’t respond he IM’d me ... told him to ban me and leave me alone, to which he kept it up, I asked 2 more time to quit messaging me ... I finally blocked him

    So, did I insult him (even tho he is a fanboi)?
    If you really want to do something, you'll find a way
    If you don't, you'll find an excuse

    "Fan" while not necessarily negative as a denotation for singular alignment to an institution comes from "fanatic" which by definition denotes "excessive, single-minded zeal"
    The purposeful misspelling of "boy" to "boi" is intended to denote additional immaturity or ignorance.

    Compound that to the current culture and the HEAVY link between a person's spending habits to self worth/image and I think you can say that it can be easily seen as an insult.

    I personally don't see it as an insult i would've just "LOL'd" about it and continue with my day. However, there are a lot of snowflakes nowadays and they are easily triggered, so tread carefully my friend.

    I don’t consider it an insult. It just shows that others recognize our passion for HKs.

    They are jealous we have good taste in quality and understand the value of paddle magazine release levers.

    I have referred to myself as an HK bigot. Unfortunately, the slippery slope has become very steep lately.

    I've had guys here call me an HK Elitist, so I think that's next level Fanboi.
