He's not the only one, mind you; Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo have also "submitted to the culling", and posted the following pic via Instagram (h/t Screen Rant) to announce their return to social media.

Of course, our favorite heroes will likely have a far more hard time undoing Thanos' actions when Avengers 4 hits theaters next summer. At the time of publication, more than 710,000 accounts had followed the subreddit, testing their luck as they waited to see whether they'd be banned or survive. It marks the largest ban in Reddit's history. In a surprising twist, Reddit itself joined the excitement, starting a stream on Twitch that is featuring the mass banning live, which you can watch below.

I don't feel so good. Inspired by the Mad Titan's actions, Reddit will ban half of its users from r/thanosdidnothingwrong today but according to The-Jedi-Apprentice, "snapped" members can unsubscribe from the subreddit and subscribe to R/INTHESOULSTONE in order to reverse the ban. There's even a r/thanosiswrong spinoff subreddit now at 9,500 subscribers.

Leading up to the big ban subscribers were sharing their best (and worst) Thanos memes.

Channelling the 50/50 chance style of Thanos wielding the Infinity Gauntlet - something Josh Brolin got in on - the sub moderators banned over half of their 630,000 subscribers on Monday night - well, they'd risen to 700,000 before the ban started after a few last calls.

The joke among members was that if r/ThanosDidNothingWrong truly embraced what Thanos was all about, it would seek balance by banning half of their own number. And now that the Russo Brothers have officially subscribed, members are asking that only one director survive the purge - you know, in the name of ideal balance.
