Faux irony

My new coinage: faux irony. Or "fauxrony" if you must. For situations where people claim to like something in an ironic manner except that they really do like it genuinely.
"Britney Spears' Crossroads was a classic of modern cinema", he said in faux-ironic fashion.
Which adds another layer of irony, I suppose.
