'Catfish': Tracie Thoms meets obsessed superfan

'Catfish': Tracie Thoms Of 'Rent' Meets Super Fan Stalker

On "Catfish," actress Tracie Thoms, best known for her role in the movie "Rent," contacted Nev to ask for his help. This was the first time a celebrity had ever been on the show.

Tracie explained that she had an obsessed superfan who created multiple social media accounts to interact with her. That fan then killed off one of the fake accounts she created, and took pictures at a funeral to make it seem that her friend died to garner sympathy from Tracie. Nev and Max eventually had Tracie and her super fan meet to settle the issue.

Superfan Sammie told Tracie that when Tracie responded to her on Twitter it made her feel special, so she created multiple accounts hoping for more responses from the star. She said the reason behind her actions was that she is lonely in her real life and saw Tracie as a big sister, which she never had. As strange as it was, Sammie apologized for her behavior in the end and the issue was settled.

Bustle notes this was one of the only episodes that wasn't romantic and just strange.

Still, fans on Twitter were emotional watching the episode, feeling for Sammie, hoping she will get off the internet and value herself more going forward.

Calling all dumbassess to post something nasty about Tracie Thoms just because she is black or just because as dumbasses, that is what they do. Tracie is just a gal who works as an actress and had some nut on her case. This web site says "Join the discussion" above the post box . . . it doesn't say, "Show us what a bigot you are."

I actually think Tracie Thoms is cute. I am white by the way. I have enjoyed her perfomances in Cold Case & Harry's Law. She's a decent actress with a range to play different characters and has a great on screen presence. I wish her much success in the future.

I have known Tracie since the day she was born. She is one of the kindest souls on this planet. It does not surprise me that she had compassion for someone who has not been exactly nice to her. Her entire family is the same way - just real down to earth people. To know her is to love her. For someone with such a huge talent - she has a very small ego and is and always has been a very genuine caring human being. The same with her Mom Dad and her brother and her lovely grandmother Mimi. Tracie - I am so proud of you not only as an actress/singer but also has a human being. A real role model for everyone to follow. Love Neal

Thats what I got when I saw her initial expression when Sammie said hi. She seemed a little bit afraid, which you cant blame her in such a situation, but ego-less. And to hug the poor girl later, that was very compassionate. I hope the girl can somehow find a way to not be so lonely in her life. Too young to be lonely.

Wow. So investigatorkch post an opinion about the show and you feel so strongly about it that you attack him or her personally. That is a bit much don't you think? Kind of funny that you comment that he or she has no life when your life seems to be very much about TV. SMH

I love Tracie. She handled this encounter with class where I am sure others would have been screaming. I look forward in seeing her in future projects!
