Facebook Group Planning To Sabotage Black Panther Ratings Shut Down
A Facebook group started by an alt-right member planning to sabotage “Black Panther” with negative reviews has been shut down. Last week news spread that the maladroit mayo in the Down-With-Disneys-Treatment-of-Franchises-and-its-Fanboys group declared that they’d flood Rotten Tomatoes with low scores for the film. Over 3,000 people agreed to participate.
Unfortunately for the desperate deplorables, Facebook’s shut them down because they “violated community standards.”
Rotten Tomatoes has also spoken out and added that they don’t support the hate speech the rancid racists were spewing and if they try to downplay the film, they’ll be blocked.
“We at Rotten Tomatoes are proud to have become a platform for passionate fans to debate and discuss entertainment, and we take that responsibility seriously,” wrote RT in a statement.
“While we respect our fans’ diverse opinions, we do not condone hate speech. Our team of security, network and social experts continue to closely monitor our platforms, and any users who engage in such activities will be blocked from our site and their comments removed as quickly as possible.”
The film’s director Ryan Coogler previously shook off criticism from the Facebook group and classily said he wants everyone to feel included no matter their politcal views.
“For me, I’m looking forward to everybody seeing the film,” Coogler said to The Huffington Post. “I’m really looking forward to sharing the film with audiences regardless of what their political views are … that’s kind of where I [stand on that].”
He’s a much kinder person than us.
