No group of fanboys is better than the other. Trevor fanboys, Johnny fanboys, Niko fanboys, they are all the same. It's stupid to try to say that these fanboys are better than other fanboys. They are all fanboys. Period.
Now back on topic, I understand why TLAD fans (not fanboys) are mad about K's death. Some of these guys are so pissed that they go ahead and blame the bad writing and plot holes in the story. The story is excellent and so is the writing, I'm sure you can find as many plot holes in all of the GTAs. Yes, including IV. Killing a popular character is a stupid move? No, it's not. The guy who writes Game of Thrones does that in a daily basis, and nobody denies that he is a good writer. You people are not used to it. That's the problem. Get used to it. The scene was excellent and it is because of the excellent writing.
And hey, the scenes whe Michael and Trevor die are amazingly well executed too. They are very emotional. I hated killing Trevor, but the scene was good. I wouldn't even mind if they made ending A canon, because it is well written, just like B (ending C I admit it's the only part where the writers screwed up and everything related to the antagonists, but that's it).
They can kill any of my favourite characters as long as it's well written. Johnny's death was well written.

not trying to sound like a dick, but i don't think you understand. quoting drunken cowboy:
- It's more or less HOW Johnny was killed, by who, in what fashion, under what circumstances, and how Johnny received it more than the fact that he WAS killed.
- It's the WHY, we feel this effect could have been conveyed in the same way without the sacrifice of Johnny and his old crew.
- It violates everything we were meant to believe about Johnny and the Lost in The Lost and Damned.
- It either made Trevor a drag or completely ruined him as a playable character in GTA V. We did not get many reasons to sympathize or just like him during the campaign anyway, but this really pushed it over the edge.
- Bringing Johnny back was unnecessary, poster Grievous said:
The only ending route that made sense was the one we precisely saw at the end of Lost and Damned , with Johnny's three final steps at committing social 'suicide' ; storming a government facility to kill a childhood friend , torching his own home , saying farewell to friends on the phone and sitting on that dirty bed in Brian's safehouse as incessant and loud death metal music rings over his head.
There was no 'need' to bring Johnny back and show people how 'drugs are bad! even if life all falls apart you should never take it as a last resort! and don't touch drug addicted women either!' it would have been akin to have an ambulance arriving and reviving Victor Vance, but on the way back to the hospital the ambulance goes off route and flips upside down and crash and burn and explodes. It's overkill.
- To a lesser extent, but still a present argument, we feel that the presence of Johnny, the Lost, and maybe even the Angels of Death would have led to a much more interesting environment in Blaine County.
