Subscriner numbers ballooned from just over 50,000 users to almost half-a-million in a week as the worldwide community hopped aboard the fad (or "hype train"; youth lingo). In order to recreate the effects of Thanos'snap during Infinity War, the subreddit made a decision to get perfectly balanced by getting half of their subscribers banned, removed, and wiped out from the community on Monday, July 9.
It's all going down on July 9, after which some users plan to congregate in other movie-appropriate subreddits, like r/inthesoulstone. When the idea came up to ban half of the users in tribute to Infinity War, users instantly thought about getting Josh Brolin on board to complete the snap and ban half of the subscribers. Hey, perhaps some of Scott's ant friends from the Ant-Man films fell victim to Thanos' snap as well in Infinity War.
Joe Russo took to the forum Sunday afternoon to post a video of Brolin laying down shirtless delivering the snap that would wipe out half the followers.
Since the Russo Brothers posted the video, which was shortly before 10 AM Pacific time, the initial tweet has gained over 4.6 thousand likes and it's been retweeted over 1,000 times.
A still from Avengers: Infinity War/Image from Twitter. But in return, Reddit's admins are creating a bot that will let The-Jedi-Apprentice easily ban half of the members. The Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit has not announced if they will follow the story of Avengers 4 and reverse the snap next May.
"At this point, Thor may correct his mistake and taking Thanos' advice, aim for the head".
Perhaps it's more shocking that this question was brought up to begin with, but now it begs the question of who or what else was snapped away from this universe during the ending of the most recent Avengers film.
This isn't the first Thanos-related internet concoction to make its way online after the release of "Infinity War", however. From there, one of the moderators suggested they should voluntarily purge half of their own members to honor Thanos' wishes and it would be "perfectly balanced, as all things should be".
