Inside The Twisted Minds Of People Who Worship James Holmes

While most Americans are horrified by alleged mass murderer James Holmes, he has also developed quite a fan base. 

The twisted fans of the 24-year-old accused of killing a dozen people and injuring many more at an Aurora, Colo. movie theatre have congregated on the Internet. 

There are already several blogs devoted to the self-described “Holmies” that shed light on the strange culture.

Here’s a graph posted to Tumblr explaining the demographic of people who identify as “Holmies:”

There are also a lot of memes that reference slurpees because of a video from high school science camp that reveals Holmes’ dream was to own a slurpee machine.
