There are many supporters who are genuinely interested in the lives and the actions of popular celebrities. Others are stereotypes and will ask the same questions over and over again.

It has apparently happened where the girlfriend of a male chatbot user has located his phone and was completely convinced that her boyfriend was interacting with the celebrity on Facebook messenger. The girlfriend was very jealous which is proof of how convincing chatbots can be.
Many people are simply not aware of the fact that it is basically only a machine. In order to ensure an effective celebrity chatbot will require some planning.
