Thanks to Thanos, Reddit Is Planning a Huge Purge

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

In a move inspired by Thanos' mission in Avengers: Infinity War, Reddit is set to ban half of its users from the r/thanosdidnothingwrong subreddit on July 9th.

As of this writing, the subreddit is now at 391,000 subscribers, which would mean 195,500 Reddit users will be instantly banned with the click of a button.

Fans on the grounds of the All-England Club watch the World Cup quarterfinal between England and Sweden on their cellphones. Here's just about everything you need to know about the World Cup final - outside of who's in it, of course.


If Avengers: Infinity War was due in large part to Thanos, he was also for some scenes of intense fighting in incredible places.

At the time of this writing, the Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit has more than 660 thousand subscribers. The Joe Russo Reddit account added a selfie-video from Thanos actor Josh Brolin's Instagram to the thread making the upcoming cull official. The Russo Brothers delivered a video of Brolin in bed, recreating the mighty snap.

It turns out reddit wasn't entirely cool with the idea of letting moderators permanently ban themselves and half of their followers, but they were convinced fairly quickly once the notion took hold of the subreddit. Now, user The-Jedi-Apprentice has created a post detailing how banned users can come back from the "finger snap". Essentially, the subreddit began as a place for fans to post pro-Thanos memes and pictures. 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. "He told me that doing a massive ban the day before July 4 was a bad idea, because many of Reddit's engineers would be out with their families". Let's hope he doesn't take it too hard, who knows what it could mean for the production of Avengers 4. They are looking into bots to make the mass-banning possible.
