Sexist Orange Fart Cloud supporter created bots to tank Last Jedi's rankings

Yeah, an Orange Fart Cloud snowflake couldn't stand the idea of seeing strong women on the big screen.

A self-described member of the “alt-right” has taken credit for tanking Rotten Tomatoes’ score for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” with bots — and he did so because he’s angry about the producers’ decision to cast more women in the film.

As Huffington Post reports, the moderator of the Facebook page “Down With Disney’s Treatment of Franchises and its Fanboys” claims he unleashed bots on Rotten Tomatoes because Lucasfilm, the production house owned by Star Wars creator George Lucas, was intent on pursuing “their own feminst [sic] agenda.”

“I’m sick and tired of men being portrayed as idiots,” the page’s moderator told HuffPost. “There was a time we ruled society and I want to see that again. That is why I voted for Donald Trump.”

On December 12, the CEO of Fandango (who owns Rotten Tomatoes) tweeted praise for the film, which received a rare 93% approval rating and was “certified fresh” almost immediately.

Hell's bells, this guy's grandma must live in my town! She sends rambling letters to the newspaper where she defends Trump, and blames women and minorities for all of the world's problems.

I just wanted to say that I gave the Last Jedi a 1 star review too - but not because of "powerful women" in the story, but because it seemed to reduce every role to mere caricature, including powerful women.  I don't think the reaction and ratings of the fans is the work of a crazy anti-feminist patriarch.

The film was visually stunning.  But at the end of the movie, I walked out saying "meh".   The Force Awakens made me love Rey.  But the Last Jedi - all the characters were written as flat - including Kylo Ren.  I'll probably see Episode IX - but mostly because I want to see if JJ Abrams can redeem Star Wars for me.  I don't plan on wasting time on Rian Johnson's trilogy.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
