Facebook is not here for your petty nonsense, this time. The social media giant has banned the Down With Disney’s Treatment of Franchises and its Fanboys page/group behind the campaign to sabotage the audience rating for Black Panther on Rotten Tomatoes. The reason for the banishment was a report of harassment.
This was the same group, led by a self-professed member of the alt-right, that claimed ownership of the poor audience scores for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Unfortunately, this group has learned zero lessons from the stories and heroes they claim to love and feel the need to “defend.”
Rotten Tomatoes has also spoken out against this organized attempt to manipulate the site’s scores.
We will have to see if these clowns attempt to organize again on Facebook, or another social media platform.
One thing’s for sure: there’s no stopping Black Panther. That movie is going to be a monster hit no matter what a few (or even a few thousand) so-called “fans” have to say about it.
