The internet always wins, especially with the abundance of memes, and the latest to take the cake is an Avengers: Infinity War meme subreddit and/or Thanos apologist group r/thanosdidnothingwrong, that is poised to make Reddit history.
On July 9, the moderators behind r/thanosdidnothingwrong will ban half of its members in honor of Thanos’ ultimate goal of destroying half of the world’s population to protect survivors from starvation and overcrowding, inspired by (***SPOILER ALERT***) the ending of Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War.
The idea is to randomize the entire process, but extra work will be needed in order to pull off the joke, as they are looking into bots to make the mass-banning possible. Those who make it through the slaughter like in the film, will remain in the subreddit. 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. The ceremony is expected to be live streamed, however, it has not been confirmed yet if Josh Brolin will partake in the event.
As of this writing, the subreddit is currently at 391,000 subscribers, which would mean 195,500 Reddit users will be instantly banned with the click of a button. If that number keeps climbing, which suggests that it will, this could be one of the biggest (if not the biggest) bans in Reddit history.
Head on over to r/thanosdidnothingwrong for more, and to join the group if you’re interested.
