HBO Max Retweet Angers SnyderVerse Fans
Oh, it’s all kicking off now! HBO Max’s Twitter account retweeted a tweet that really got the SnyderVerse fans riled up, and for good reason.
So, what happened to make the SnyderVerse fans so angry? What did HBO Max do?
Well, there was a tweet posted by a guy called Scott Porch.
Who’s Scott Porch? Good question. Before this tweet – or retweet – blew up, I had never heard of him.
Turns out, he’s a Contributing writer for Decider and The Daily Beast.
So, it’s not even like he’s a big deal or anything.
He’s not the Editor of a well-known publication.
However, his tweet really got SnyderVerse fans angry.
HBO Max got into trouble with SnyderVerse fans for retweeting a tweet
Why, you ask? Well, it’s because in his tweet, Scott pointed out the fact that Wonder Woman 1984, Mortal Kombat and Godzilla Vs. Kong are reportedly the best performing films on HBO Max.
He then called out the SnyderVerse fans at the end of his tweet.
Here’s what he wrote:
Here’s an infonugget: @HBOMax’s three biggest opening-weekend movies to date are:
Sorry, #ReleaseTheSnyderCut bros!
Is there any reason to says “Sorry, #ReleaseTheSnyderCut bros” at the end of his tweet?
The answer is simple. No. There wasn’t.
Well, things just got worse when one of HBO Max’s official Twitter accounts, @InsideHBOMax, retweeted his tweet.
Now, what I think happened is that a community manager in charge of this HBO Max account didn’t really realise the implications of sharing this tweet.
They probably weren’t very well informed about the SnyderVerse fans and what’s going on between them and WarnerMedia at the moment.
The fact that they quickly undid their retweet suggests this to be the case.
Still, it wasn’t a very good look for HBO Max and people got very upset and angry about it.
