Thanks to Thanos, Reddit Is Planning a Huge Purge

  • Reddit Avengers Thanos

The forum r/thanosdidnothingwrong has gone viral after news spread that it would be eliminating half of its users, just as Thanos wiped out half the universe at the end of Infinity War. Also, to make it even more glorifying, the moderators have reportedly asked Thanos himself, played by Josh Brolin, to push the button come July 9, which will take the ban into effect.

"If the snap doesn't happen in 15min the I am legally allowed to report r/thanosdidnothingwrong for messing with my emotions for 24hrs", said one user earlier on the big day. The video was upvoted over 93,000 times in just a few hours and garnered over 14,000 comments. Like Loki, Thanos had a likeable quality where many moviegoers actually understood and sympathized with his beliefs.

Members of popular subreddit "r/ThanosDidNothingWrong" are now bracing for a digital purge the likes of which we've never seen before, with moderators expected to ban half the community - a figure which amounts to around 300,000 people at the time of writing - sometime later today.

On July 6, a petition to keep actor Jeremy Renner from participating in the ban surfaced. In order to ensure you're banned, you simply have to post in the subreddit.

Today, the subreddit moderators are kicking things up a notch by banning half of their over 630,000 subscribers-making the universe once again "perfectly balanced". They might have corndogs soon enough, so it's not that bad. Thanos saw this happen on his home planet of Titan and was cast out after suggesting genocide to ultimately save his world. Josh Brolin, the man behind the Infinity Gauntlet, ushered in the random banning in a short video of him snapping his fingers.

Life was sorted back in April with the release of Avengers: Infinity War.
