Yep, but I used these terms to make it clear that (apparently) no bones are broken. I really hope that's true.

I am a bike racing fan, and his riding is sufficiently charismatic for me in any case, just as Stoner’s was.
If you watch the youtube where him and his crew chief are watching all the races of 2017 and commenting on each race you can see he is a nice normal guy.

I can find the link if you don't know which video I mean.

Possibly has been taken down from youtube at dorna's request.
To say Marquez isn't charismatic is ridiculous but the kind of behaviour you expect from Rossi fans grasping at straws.

Ol' Paps is a longtime hater of anything not Rossi. Can't take anything he says seriously. I found MM a bit creepy during his time in Moto 2 and his first year in the big leagues, but he was just kind of shy, not really used to the attention. Now he really does seem like the usual happy-go-lucky kid.

Which one is worse? The one that hates a behavior of a specific person for free online but does not boo at that person on a podium and neither cheers when the that person falls/gets hurt or the one that hates so much that they even pay to hate on booes riders on the podiums and cheers when they fall and possibly get hurt?

I see in your quoted text the bit about paying. Money makes everything okay.
The grotesque idea of money and power triumphing over ethics and morals.

Horrific crash. Let's hope he'll be alright
Thankfully should have full recovery. Appears the edited the crash out. Looks like brake locked. https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/64295...ctice-session/

Hey don't blame me, I'm not the one booing. Go back and read what I post. Most fans of other riders don't like MM too. Casey was rarely ever booed outside of Italy and maybe Spain. Casey never got boo in his home race.

Marc gets booed whenever he's introduced on the podium. He was even boo in your country. Face the fact, he's a dirty rider with a long history of crashes into other riders and those say he have any personality are full of it. Sepang and Valencia 2015 where he refused to attempt a pass on Lorenzo was the ice on cake. It's a competition between Jorge and Marc to who has less fans and the least charisma. Doesn't matter how many titles he win, he has zero personality and the least fans. In fact, his only fans seem to be the couple dozen here who despise Rossi.
