Black Panther Attacked By Rabid Fanboys
Black Panther is about to pounce into theaters and everyone is excited. Well…not everyone. A group of extreme DC fans are unhappy. This is due to a perceived bias at Rotten Tomatoes against DC films, favoring Marvel instead. While some critics did note that reviews with similar scores were rotten for Justice League and fresh for Thor Ragnarok, there is little solid evidence. They also ignore the fact that Disney is in the doghouse with critics, due to the studio’s attacks on the Los Angeles Times. This led to several boycotts of Disney movies by critics and publications. This was only lifted when Disney made amends. But nevertheless, these fanboys want to rain hellfire on Wakanda. So, they plan to rig the Rotten Tomatoes audience score and spoil the movie.
Black Panther Versus Nerds
The insane manifesto reads:
“Given the massive success of the audience review rigging on the Rotten Tomatoes site for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and due to the sudden rise in those disgruntled with Disney business practices among other factors especially due to the corporate manipulations which created falsified bad press for the DCEU, I feel that it’s time to strike back at all those under Disney and bring down the house of mouse’s actions for paying off the critics that hurt DC Comics on film and for other parties affected by them.”
Oy…where do I even begin?
Fanboys…To Camera 3
Look, as anyone at Word of the Nerd will tell you, I’m a DC fanboy. I love the DCEU films and will defend Justice League to the hilt if I have to. But I cannot side with these people. They are deranged fanatics that make ALL DC fans look bad. I, and several others online, have expressed our disgust over this. But, now we are going to be painted with the same brush as these lunatics.
Not only that, they associate themselves with the sexists and racists who attacked The Last Jedi for myriad pathetic and inane reasons. And furthermore, they don’t have hard evidence to back up their claims! They only have conspiracy theories.
In the end, they’re going to be the ones laughed at, for being pathetic losers who want to ruin the enjoyment of others. I say, let Black Panther reign on opening weekend on February 16th.
As for this fanboy, I will be seeing the film eventually, just not on the day opens. No offense to T’challa, but I got Hello Dolly tickets that night and I have a massive nerd crush on Bernadette Peters.
