Since Xiao Zhan is a famous Chinese star who owns a huge number of fans, the incident was quickly fermented, causing a wide range of social discussions. Based on Collins's theory of interactive ritual chain, this paper aimes to understand the deeper origin of the conflict and the division of different fans’ community in the 227 incidents. The research analyzed the fans culture and fans conflict from inside-to-outside, which brought a new insight for fans’ study.
