Infinity War's Thanos inspires one of the biggest bans in Reddit history

Reddit Avengers Thanos

In Avengers: Infinity War the Mad Titan gathered the all-powerful Infinity Stones with a goal to wipe out half of all life in the universe so that a balance can be struck, and remaining life can prosper. When the idea came up to ban half of the users in tribute to Infinity War, users instantly thought about getting Josh Brolin on board to complete the snap and ban half of the subscribers.

Avengers: Infinity War has played an important part in social media over the last few months. If that number keeps climbing, which suggests that it will, this could be one of the biggest (if not the biggest) bans in Reddit history. The Joe Russo Reddit account added a selfie-video from Thanos actor Josh Brolin's Instagram to the thread making the upcoming cull official.

"Here we go, Reddit users", Brolin says in the video while delivering his iconic finger snap with a smile on his face.

Now if it is legit, it's possible that the sub is fake (a lot of the big subs, DC, Marvel, TV, movie subs etc.at Reddit are run by employees and/or shills) and was created by Marvel themselves, and that they have some sort of script to ban half of the current 569,004 Black Order members (or the mods have a script). The reenactment of Infinity War's climactic scene will be the largest mass banning the site has ever seen.

"At this point, Thor may correct his mistake and taking Thanos' advice, aim for the head".

What do you think of Brolin's participation in the subreddit snap?

The subreddit, which now has 498 THOUSAND subscribers and increasing on a daily basis, is planning to ban half its population in honour of the Mad Titan, Thanos. Let's hope he doesn't take it too hard, who knows what it could mean for the production of Avengers 4.

Perhaps it's more shocking that this question was brought up to begin with, but now it begs the question of who or what else was snapped away from this universe during the ending of the most recent Avengers film.
