I don't think he ever lost his die hard fans. They love that he disses Evan. Johnny has an international following. It seems they just expect him to be as he is. He can do no wrong with his long time fans. I love his skating and really don't follow the other stuff but he's made me laugh many times at his antics. I enjoyed seeing Galina, Petrenko and everyone else laugh with him in the kiss and cry with the red roses crown on his head. Its only figureskating after all and most fans are rather forgiving of him. He's like a 14 year old in some ways. I personally don't make much of any of the off ice silliness. He needs lots of attention, clearly! LOL.
From the new comms that popped up after the Olys, I think Johnny gained new fans. I don't know if he lost any of his fans before 2010 but the ones he just gained are still there
