Rotten Tomatoes Updates Its Website To Hide Negative Fan Reactions
In a direct response to users voicing their disinterest in seeing the upcoming Captain Marvel film starring Brie Larson (largely due to Brie Larson being a big ole scumbag), Rotten Tomatoes has went full retard and updated its website by removing the ‘want to see’ percentage score during the pre-release period. From their website:
“As of February 25, we will no longer show the ‘Want to See’ percentage score for a movie during its pre-release period. Why you might ask? We’ve found that the ‘Want to See’ percentage score is often times confused with the ‘Audience Score’ percentage number. (The ‘Audience Score’ percentage, for those who haven’t been following, is the percentage of all users who have rated the movie or TV show positively – that is, given it a star rating of 3.5 or higher – and is only shown once the movie or TV show is released.)
What else are we doing? We are disabling the comment function prior to a movie’s release date. Unfortunately, we have seen an uptick in non-constructive input, sometimes bordering on trolling, which we believe is a disservice to our general readership. We have decided that turning off this feature for now is the best course of action. Don’t worry though, fans will still get to have their say: Once a movie is released, audiences can leave a user rating and comments as they always have.”
If this action sounds gives you cause for concern and leads you to believe that Rotten Tomatoes is hardly an unbiased, impartial review aggregator, it’s okay, it means you are still sane.
