The dude who is willing to overlook all of the reasons why it's not a good idea to idolize Patrick Bateman is so basic that he is completely unaware of his many, many shortcomings as a human being. This type of basic bro lives vicariously through other men even if the other men are the worst types of people in the world. He's power hungry, but he'll never be in a position of power so he looks up to psychotic megalomaniacs, criminals, misogynists, and serial killers.
