I’m an English learner, and I use media mostly to learn. I read a lot of “I stan” off the Internet, but I’ve never seen it spoken in movies or shows. What does it mean?

To stan basically means to like something very much.
It’s derived from a character Eminem created in his song, “Stan.” Stan is a die-hard fan of Eminem and loved him too much he became obsessed and eventually insane.
Quite a negative connotation for the word, no? But these days, it’s used as an expression of support or love to something or someone and is the new trendy way to say “I’m a fan.”
Thank you very much, Diane! You’re really good at explaining, I stan 😀 (I think I used it correctly :DD)
