Josh Brolin Recreates Thanos' Infinity War Snap for Mass Reddit User Ban

The forum r/thanosdidnothingwrong has gone viral after news spread that it would be eliminating half of its users, just as Thanos wiped out half the universe at the end of Infinity War.

However you felt about Thanos' actions in Avengers: Infinity War, you've got to admit that the last few minutes (wherein half the universe disintegrated into ashes at the behest of the purple tyrant) were great.

Dana White Says Brock Lesnar vs. Daniel Cormier Is Definitely Happening
After his appearance at UFC last night , WWE have released a statement about Lesnar - and it all seems a little bit odd. However, Lesnar tested positive for a banned substance and was suspended for a year.

Warning: This story contains spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War. Josh Brolin (the actor who plays Thanos with the help of a lot of CGI) posted a video on the subreddit to get users excited. Brolin says, "Here we go, Reddit users", before his snap. 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.

The Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit is preparing to randomly ban half of its users on Monday, July 9th and the Russo Brothers have given the trending page the video that they have been asking for.

Warren Smacks Trump Back Over DNA Test
Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., opened the rally to deafening applause and quickly went on the attack against Tester. Trump admitted in Great Falls, Montana that he likely traveled to the state because of the fight.

Via Polygon, more than 110,000 members of the subreddit (and climbing) will have happily volunteered to be booted off the forum before the carnage is over, but those running the show over there weren't exactly keen on the idea to start with. Of course, you won't turn to dust if you're in the half that's banned from the subreddit, so at least there's that.

Avengers 4 is scheduled to be released in theaters on May 3, 2019. They are looking into bots to make the mass-banning possible.

‘Racial profiling’: Man fired after calling police on black neighbor at pool
Edwards didn't have identification on her to prove she lived in the neighborhood, but had a key card for the exclusive pool. In the video, the man appears calm and unapologetic, as the woman asks him to explain why he wanted to see her ID.

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".
