Rotten Tomatoes Suspends ‘Dark Knight Rises’ Reviews After Critics Are Threatened With Death

Wednesday, July 18 by
It's like when I posted a glowing review of 'Jeff Who Lives At Home' in the prison newspaper and had to be placed in ad-seg.  

As a journalist, I’m not supposed to take sides, but…

*deep breath*

WHAT KIND OF CONTRARIAN ASSHOLE DOESN’T LIKE THE DARK KNIGHT RISES?

For the first time in the history of the site, Rotten Tomatoes has suspended user comments after some innocuous personal insults turned into threats of violence. The real news story here is that it took this long for Internet comments turn violent.

The editor of the site, Matt Atchity, explained the movie thusly: “The job of policing the comments became more than my staff could handle for that film, so we stopped the comments altogether.”

I have a better idea. Why don’t you take those spineless, tasteless assholes who talk shit about The Dark Knight Rises, shake the shit out of them until their wallet falls out, find out where they live, then get after their families, home invasion-style, until they admit that it’s the greatest movie that’s ever been made?

Why don’t you do that instead of protecting the morons who dare speak ill of The Dark Knight Rises?

Do you like this story?
