Well, if it wasn’t enough that media outlets and websites were torturing fans with their false news and clickbait articles, I’ve got another contestant for you. The petition by Roberto Mata to release a Zack Snyder cut of Justice League on Change.org gave a notification to the fans this morning who were following it and signed it stating – “Victory!”
The fans and supporters of the petition got really excited by this update. They thought that maybe WB had contacted Mata and that they were indeed planning to release a Zack Snyder cut. But when no further update came from any media outlet or Mata himself, fans got suspicious.
It was only after one of the fans contacted Mata to clarify the situation on Twitter through Direct Message (DM), Mata stated that it was not him and the petition has been hacked.
It was again a pathetic effort by someone to spread false news about the franchise and it should be discouraged. Many thanks to @CinemaricEx who shared this image of a conversation with Mata on Twitter and clarified the mess.
The petition currently has 168k supporters (at time of writing). If you want to, you can support it here.
