It's all fun and games right?


"Black Panther" was meant to bring people together — but trolls are using the milestone movie to divide people.

A number of social media users have shared images of actual women who have been assaulted and wrote that the incidents happened at "Black Panther" movies at the hands of young black people — which have been proved to be false.

one image, a user shared an actual photo of former White House staffer Rob Porter's ex-wife sporting a black eye with the caption: "Went to the #BlackPanther premier tonight and my wife was assaulted. Three black women approached us and one said 'This movie ain't for you white b****' and then attacked her. Security escorted us to the parking lot and we left. We just wanted to see a movie."

Warning: graphic images in the twitter posts.

Where do people get off doing these things? Seriously? And who's to bet these of political ideologues purposefully trying to flame up something major? Some of the images posted of these supposed assualt victims have been identified as victims of totally different events prior. The use of Rob Porter's ex-wife's image is interesting. Wonder if the culprit had any idea? Obviously not.

This isn't a once off thing you know? It seems to be a pattern. This one got caught early in the game.

Hard to take people seriously who use nydailynews as a legitimate source of information.

Looks like a bit of racism combined with severe envy for a very successful black superhero movie. Racist undertones aside, seriously it is about jealousy. Black Panther is the fifth-largest movie opening of all time.

People do this because they know there are stupid people who will believe it. Pizzagate anyone?

So then what 'legitimate' sources should I be using to be, you know, taken seriously? Please, let me know since you dismissed the OP right of the bat.

Looks like from the source's links, these trolls(or shills) are playing off both sides-see the last one about the Maga hat wearing attackers on the last one shared on it-see here. I seen a source elsewhere saying it was Russian trolls. Either way sewing the seeds of divide.
edit on 20-2-2018 by dreamingawake because: sorry mistake thought it was linked in the op

Swings and roundabouts my friend, swings and roundabouts. How do you get ignoramus' to stop such squalk? There's got to be a single solution, surely?

I think Black panther is a mediocre action movie at best. Wasn't to impressed with it, I paid to watch it but it's not one I would want to watch again.

I thought it was a pretty cool flick.
I was not assaulted by anyone of any race.
Sounds like a bunch of nonsense to me.

do you truly believe that its illegal for a white person to review this movie?
i want to know this, honestly.

do you think this tweet is no more than the other hoaxes?
why did you juxtapose the quote from the op with that screen shot of that tweet?
i wouldn't be a bit surprised if you did believe that tweet.... along with the others who star your post.

Was it the same trolls that made up the story about the Miami shooter being a White Nationalist? Or the rival faction?

Have a look on many social media boards, the statement outlined in the twitter post is not a one off.


It is actually sad that some people are taking this movie as a kind of factual situation had the white man not turned up in Africa..


Then you have the back lash,

Not true? Ok. Would I be surprised? No.

30 years ago, running around New York, was hungry so had buddy pull over while I ran into a McDonald's for some food. As I rushed inside to a full and busy restaurant the place fell silent and all eyes were on me, workers and customers were all black, hadn't realized what neighbourhood we were in. Lol. Anyway. Got in line, ordered and left, no problem, though do you think the Big Macs had any special, SPECIAL, sauce?

Would I be worried today? Yes. Would I see this movie in a city where blacks could fill the theatre? No, lol

Not long ago there was some new television series were lead character was bullet proof black guy, it was all the rage and was critically acclaimed or some such, haven't heard a peep about it since, 15 mins of fame, I don't know.

I don't know, think I'm rambling, been up all night. Lol. Completely lost my train of thought, oh yeah, Black Panther movie, week or two from now forgotten, can't we just move on
