Can a hyperactive imaginary friend potentially give a child brain damage or permanent emotional trauma?

This stipulation was actually made by someone on another website, and so far people are agreeing with it for some reason. That same person also claimed that watching movies in which children have destructively hyperactive imaginary friends actually causes children to spontaneously develop imaginary friends who encourage the child to act the same way. TQC, will you restore my faith in humanity please? I ask this knowing that this may be one of the worst places to ask for this... But seriously, imaginary friend = brain damage? REALLY???

Also, is the term "brain damaged" even USED anymore? I feel like I haven't heard that since Bill Cosby in the 90's...
