Thanos Did Nothing Wrong Subreddit Bans Half Its Subscribers

While some fans are still feeling low over the events that unfolded in Avengers: Infinity War, the others are completely enticed by the film's antagonist Thanos played by Josh Brolin. The announcement was made last week and 4 days ago, the subreddit had almost 300,000 subscribers. The subreddit dedicated to him has grown exponentially since the idea to ban half its subscribers began to pick up steam, with the current count sitting at almost 465,000.

Even the Russo Brothers, who directed Avengers: Infinity War and Captain America: Civil War, joined in on the fun by subscribing to the subreddit. Much like Thanos himself, on July 9, the administrators of the "Thanos Did Nothing Wrong" subreddit will ban half their members.

I can't tell if it's the ominous "Here we go, Reddit users" or Brolin's freaky decision to shoot this shirtless and in bed. either way, I've got chills. Essentially, the subreddit began as a place for fans to post pro-Thanos memes and pictures.


In addition to the balancing of the subreddit user universe, new subreddits have popped up for those unlucky souls who get banned. The Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit has not announced if they will follow the story of Avengers 4 and reverse the snap next May.

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.

Directors Anthony and Joe Russo offered a tease of what is to come by posting a message from Josh Brolin performing the "Thanos snap" with "Reddit, Thanos has a message for you". His motivation? To halve the serious strain overpopulation is exacting on the fictional universe, and bring balance to all things - as things should be.
