Thanos Brings Balance To Reddit

In order to recreate the effects of Thanos' snap during Infinity War, the subreddit chose to get perfectly balanced by getting half of their subscribers banned, removed, and wiped out from the community on Monday, July 9. 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. Josh Brolin (the actor who plays Thanos with the help of a lot of CGI) posted a video on the subreddit to get users excited.

"Here we go, Reddit Users", a shirtless Brolin said smiling before he snaps his fingers. The video was upvoted over 93,000 times in just a few hours and garnered over 14,000 comments. It seems only fitting since Thanos did that very thing in the movie, but on a galactic-or universal-scale. Like Loki, Thanos had a likeable quality where many moviegoers actually understood and sympathized with his beliefs. Reddit engineers initially stymied the mod's requests to ban half of all members because such an undertaking "could potentially cause some headaches with our databases", partially because moderators can't be banned from their own subreddits. The random 50% ban will take place on July 9. The subreddit dedicated to him has grown exponentially since the idea to ban half its subscribers began to pick up steam, with the current count sitting at almost 465,000. Thanos saw this happen on his home planet of Titan and was cast out after suggesting genocide to ultimately save his world. They especially asked Josh Brolin a.k.a Thanos to film a video of him recreating his Infinity War snap.
