Fake Fancams (also called the Fancam Situation) are shock videos uploaded and shared on Twitter and Instagram pretending to be a fancam video (a clip made and uploaded by fans to promote an artist and/or their music), made for baiting users into watching either a screamer or disturbing imagery, including but not limited to murder, torture, self-harm, suicide and people getting shot. The fancams originally started with K-Pop, but later expanded to other things.

This phenomenon appeared early 2019. Many K-pop stans have found red flags to identify the members of groups from where it originated such as keywords ("slit" or "slitz") and symbols.

Fake fancams made a resurgence in late December 2020. @ASUKLY made a bait-and switch image with the word "click me!" however, expanding the image would show show photos of self-harm.[1] The tweet has since been removed. ASUKLY also worked with Dreamslitz (who is now banned), who released a fake TommyInnit "fancam" the same day.[2]

Consequences

The twitter account @fancamsituation and the #stopusingfancamsasbait hashtag were created to spread awareness and who to block.

Multiple BlockTogether.org blocklists were made to block off those who posted the fake fancams. Many people took a break or censored their replies to avoid any spread of the situation.

Chainmail-like rumors were made:

  • Answering to their DMs were made would lead to your account being stolen.
  • Answering to their DMs would lead to your doxxing.

NOTE: These rumors have been debunked by Mutahar Anas, owner of the tech/deep web/news channel SomeOrdinaryGamers.
