It’s been revealed by a number of people in the fandom that the Chief Content Officer at HBO and HBO Max has been blocking SnyderVerse fans.
Why, you ask? Well, it looks like he’s been blocking people who’ve been saying that they are going to be cancelling their HBO Max subscriptions because it looks like WarnerMedia is calling it quits on the SnyderVerse.
Now, I’ve been very vocal about how if you really want the SnyderVerse to continue, then you really shouldn’t be cancelling your HBO Max subscriptions.
That said, I can totally understand why people would want to do that.
If it’s not going to be the place where the SnyderVerse will live on, then why remain subscribed to it.
Well, it seems as though Bloys isn’t happy with those people who’ve been very vocal about cancelling their HBO Max subscriptions.
He’s ended up blocking a number of them, and I don’t think this is the smartest move for him to make right now.

Use your voice WISELY and always effectively

Now, the question I do have is, does Casey know that people can see that they’ve been blocked by him on Twitter?
I would assume that he does, but I would like to give the man a benefit of a doubt.
Not everyone understands the ins and outs of social media and how it all works.
That said, he is the Chief Content Officer of a pretty big streaming service, so he should understand all that social media stuff.
Bloys has been with HBO for quite some time now, and has overseen huge hits for the company.
He was there when Game Of Thrones started and was pretty pivotal in that series getting the greenlight in the first place.
I do hope that he realises that this blocking move was not clever and that he issues some sort of apology.
Somehow, I doubt the blocked SnyderVerse fans will get that though.
What do you make of this news?
