Thanos-Inspired Subreddit Poised to Ban Half its Members

The Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit is about to get a massive makeover in a few days

It might have been a silly Reddit event and a slice of real fun on the internet, but the Thanos fan culling has actually gotten the attention of the Avengers: Infinity War villain himself. With that out of the way, Reddit is going to experience its biggest forum ban ever on July 9th when the moderators of the thanosdidnothingwrong subreddit randomly ban half their members.

The number of casualties could be even greater as the more subscribers join. "This means half the subreddit will be banned, to achieve true balance", the moderator explained. The announcement was made last week and 4 days ago, the subreddit had almost 300,000 subscribers.

Now, even Josh Brolin, the actor behind Thanos, has chimed in with his support by snapping his fingers at Reddit.

"Here we go, Reddit users", Brolin says in the video while delivering his iconic finger snap with a smile on his face. While those numbers are impressive, they are nothing compared to what's happening over at the Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit where as of this writing, the post has over 80,000 upvotes and has 13.8 thousand comments. Playing off of the popular fan theories for Avengers 4, the Soul World and Soul Stone are new subreddits where everybody who was banned can go and discuss getting turned to dust. 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. Luckily, that permission was granted - though the date of the ban was moved from July 3 to July 9, as most of Reddit's engineers were set to celebrate Independence Day with a day off.

One subreddit will soon be perfectly balanced, as all things should be.
