Thanos Did Nothing Wrong Subreddit Bans Half Its Subscribers
 

 
In one of the more outrageous (and ingenious) things to happen on the internet today, half of an entire subreddit was “snapped” into banishment to honor Thanos, the villain of Avengers: Infinity War.

The Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit, a collection of redditors who post memes devoted to the Infinity War villain, grew so quickly that the moderators and members felt it was time to balance out the universe by banning half of its subscribers.

On July 9, the mods of the subreddit randomly selected half of the subscribers to ban after receiving permission from Reddit admins. Josh Brolin, the man behind the Infinity Gauntlet, ushered in the random banning in a short video of him snapping his fingers. Infinity War directors, the Russo Brothers, posted the video of Brolin on Twitter, which you can see below.


At the time of this writing, the Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit has more than 660 thousand subscribers. A post on the top of the page asks those banished to join the In the Soul Stone subreddit, in reference to a popular fan theory explaining what happens to the heroes at the end of Infinity War. This new subreddit already has more than 24 thousand members, but that figure should increase as the day goes on.

The users who are being banned is currently streaming on Twitch.

In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos’ motivations for gathering the Infinity Stones was noble (in his mind, at least). To prevent the universe from becoming overpopulated and falling into chaos like his homeworld of Titan, Thanos looks to use all six Infinity Stones to k!ll half the universe.

Back in May, a site called Did Thanos k!ll Me was created to let moviegoers see if they would be spared by the villain.

I got on that sub and it had just under 100,000 subscribers, by the time they did the ban it was right around 700,000 subs.....Reddit is crazy big. I usually just go on and browse r/baseball, r/skookum and r/construction since BX doesn't fill those interests that much on here but most of Reddit is full of weirdo hive minds its worse than BX most the time.

Preciate the insight. BX is the only forum I’m on so I had no idea.

Yup. Top 5-10 most visited site in the US (world depending on metric) among the likes of (in no order) Google, Yahoo, Amazon, Youtube, Wikipedia, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

No other site gives businesses, celebs, or their brand the access to their fans and consumers quite like Reddit.

Schwarzenegger is known for random pop ins in the fitness and bodybuilding subreddits.

Xbox's Major Nelson is always in the Xbox One subreddit providing updates or helping someone out that has had an issue (say with a hardware issue).

Check out the AMA (ask me anything) section, you'll see a whole schedule full of celebs of different degrees of fame.

Obama did an AMA in 2012
