Someone who is possessed by clout chasing. The original human is now gone and a demonic entity that feeds on clout is all that is left. An empty shell with no control of their actions, forced to blindly react to situations they think will bring them attention.

Clapter is a word coined by Amanda Filipacchi in her 1993 novel Nude Men to describe the enthusiastic response to the avant-garde magician Laura who entertains her audience with "tricks" that require no actual magic but do demand an elevated level of sophistication on the part of the viewer in order to be appreciated.
