A fake fan is a fan of a band/artist who think's they know everything about a band, but in all honesty, only found out about them 10 minutes ago and is most likely following a fad and has only heard a hand full of songs and knows nothing about the band. Fake fans tend to get aggressive when you confront them about their fakeness. They are most related to Jonas Brothers and other popular teen stars.
"oh so who's your favourite member of the band?"
"Oh you know...the one with the long hair? he's cute"
"umm, fake fan much?"
"NO I'M FUCKING NOT. I'M A MUCH BETTER FAN THAN YOU, BITCH."

Someone who likes a band/artist/actor who becomes totally aggressive whenever anyone else says that they like them. They are considered fake fans because they try as had as they can to put down anyone else who likes the same thing as them. They can be identified pretty easily, as when you mention liking something, they will immediately test you and label you as a fake fan if you get one fact about them wrong.

A fake fan is someone who has recently discovered a new film, series, artist, or book and despite only recently learning about it, still claims that they have superior knowledge and refer to it so frequently that it eventually becomes outright disrespectful to the original, larger fan base. Some examples of films which have been plagued by fake fans are suicide squad, deadpool and the recent 'It' film.
"Hey? Did you hear Ryan over there quote the new 'It' film? I bet he hasn't seen the original or read the book."

"I know right! He's such a fake fan!"
