I don't know why people would hate Yorick. He's just a guy out there to make a name for himself, fighting long and grueling battles against warriors, mages, and pirates with nothing but a shovel in his hands and his ghostly pals. He's even got the whole pity factor too, limping around all over the place. The crowd probably eats it up when he salvages a battle by protecting an ally, and using his ghosts he makes with the power of friendship to beat back the other team. He's not bound by some code of pride or a neverending desire to consume and kill, he's just an undead underdog who sometimes comes around to save the day. I would be Yorick's #1 fan, regardless of Febreze.
TL;DR: Yorick is like Zombie Rocky
