When a fan ships two characters who really shouldn't be together, they are wrongshipping. Wrongshipping isn't a judgment made about a fan's shipping preferences, but the recognition that the characters in question would be a hot mess together. Wrongshipping can also be used when a fan is in support of a pairing other than the canon OTP.

Some of them are wrongshipping between sociopaths, but still... [2]
Seriously - am so wrongshipping! [3]
