Thanos Did Nothing Wrong
Josh Brolin, who plays the mighty Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War has joined the cull and posted a video on Instagram and Reddit of the iconic snap that seeks to ban half of their subreddit fans. Thanos’ action in the film was aimed to cut the population by half reducing the strain on limited resources.

In the Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit, fans can be seen sympathizing with the supervillain over his cruel action. Unbeknownst to them they were to suffer the same fate as half of the 352,000 members are to be banned from the group and Brolin has already delivered the fatal snap.
Ironically, since news of the cull spread, many more have subscribed in hopes of being digitally killed by Thanos. The Jedi Apprentice, who is the moderator, overwhelmed with the number of people okay with the ban idea convinced admins to allow the ban to occur quickly and easily.
While Thanos’ motivations are heavily criticized, many agree that the Mad Titan is one of the best villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Lacking in sympathy, his intentions are still more complex than other Marvel Studios Villains in Phase 1 and 2.
For Reddit users to be a part of the cull, they need to subscribe to the subreddit. The Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit inspired multiple memes which goes to show how impactful the film has been to the popular culture. It also shows the significance of valuable fan interaction via social media.
