‘Isn’t it ironic?’: Twitter Busts Rolling Stones’ Fake Bots Claim, Reveal Site Itself Has 24% Fake Followers

According to a recent Rolling Stone article, a disproportionate number of false accounts helped the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign succeed. Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg in the 2017 film Justice League, which has been dogged by controversy ever since, spoke out in response to the report, which has generated a lot of discussions online. However, the Rolling Stone report is facing other remarks regarding their hypocrisy, as Twitter users reveal that the site has 24% fake followers — which proves to be quite ironic.

To provide some context, a viral internet campaign to release Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League reached a penultimate point through the hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, which eventually led to the release of his four-hour version on HBO Max. This was after Joss Whedon took over as director of the 2017 Justice League movie, which ended up being a flop. However, according to the Rolling Stone report, most of the accounts that participated in the movement were claimed to be “fake bots.” This is what Rolling Stone had to say about it: 

“According to two reports commissioned by WarnerMedia and recently obtained by Rolling Stone, at least 13 percent of the accounts that took part in the conversation about the Snyder Cut were deemed fake.”

Twitter had something to say in response to this, specifically to counter the irony of the situation.

This particular user dug up the Fake Followers Audit for both the accounts for Warner Bros. Pictures and Rolling Stone — which have staggering amounts of fake followers on Twitter who follow them. The official account for Warner Bros. Pictures has 33.0% of fake followers out of their 5,074,264 followers, while the Rolling Stone account has 24.3% fake followers out of their 6,402,867 followers.

Others’ Reaction To This Revelation?

Most people on the platform agree about Rolling Stone’s hypocrisy in this matter. To most, the revelation was quite humorous. Ever since the Rolling Stone report published by Senior Writer Tatiana Siegel was released, people had a lot to comment on it. Some questioned their credibility and spoke up about the “fake claims.”
