I don't think it's weird. I get what he's saying.

Crack pairings are simply crack. They're not hated on precisely because they're not perceived as a viable threat to a more popular pairing. People can laugh them off.

3rd (and sometimes 4th/5th) viable pairings actually can get hated on, or at least make people antsy at the thought of them, because they're an actual viable threat to the two more popular pairings. Hence, in some ways, they're more "unpopular" than a crack pairing. They're more unpopular in that they're more likely to attract hate.
