There's an inevitable pattern that consumes Internet sensations. Upon initial fame, the subject is hailed as a legend or hero. The hot shot then tries to capitalize on the fame, which often results in social backlash. This is subsequently followed by vilification and fallout, as the public collectively agrees the whole phenomenon was stupid in the first place. But what happens after that?
