Developing: A Petition Has Been Filed Against Rotten Tomatoes Following Negative Suicide Squad Film Reviews

The recently released film, Suicide Squad has received some mixed reviews from critics, with it currently holding a 36% rating on the review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes, with an average rating of 5.3 out of 10. Many dedicated fans of the DC Universe have given blame at reviewers, accusing them of "collusion" and staging a vague conspiracy against movie adaptations of DC comic books. Despite Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy being one of the most well-received in film history, matched with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad both received less than favorable ratings from critics is seen as evidence of this conspiracy, with online activists now banding together in order to bring down the film review site Rotten Tomatoes once and for all.

A petition on Change.org titled 'Shutdown Rotten Tomatoes' has now received over 9,000 supporters, just shy of its goal of 10,000. The petition reads:


"We need this site to be shut down because It's Critics always give The DC Extended Universe movies unjust Bad Reviews, Like

1- Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016

2- Suicide Squad 2016

and that Affects people's opinion even if it's a really great movies"
Though Rotten Tomatoes is a review aggregator and therefore isn't responsible for the negative reviews the movie is receiving, that hasn't prevented many from agreeing with the petition's sentiment that the entire site should be shut down for its crimes. One commenter wrote: "I love both Man of Steel and the Ultimate Cut of Batman v Superman and I'm really bummed out by the reviews for Suicide Squad. I don't want DC Films to be in the same vain of the Transformers movies and I think it's pathetic that people want the universe to fail." Another added: Rotten Tomatoes is just a bunch of horrible critics who think that they're professionals because they have their own website. They're normal people, with biased prejudices and unjust mentalities." You hear that, critics? You need to sort out mentalities, and try to make them more just!
                           
As much as I hate to say this, unfortunately this petition won't actually lead to anything, predominantly because Warner Bros - the company that distributed both Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman - own a 30% stake in Rotten Tomatoes. If the critics of Rotten Tomatoes (who, as previously mentioned, don't actually exist) are conspiring against DC film adaptations, then it would be odd of them to do so on a property that is owned by the company selling these movies.

Exclusive Interview: 804 Street Media CEO Lance Cooper

Last week, the staff of WITIN RADIO had the opportunity to meet with 804 Street Media CEO & Editor In Chief , Lance Cooper.During the interview we had the opportunity to speak with Lance on his life's work, his company's Social Media presence, and the state of Black America.

When did you launch 804 Street Media & what was the catalyst for you launching 804 Street Media ?

"The official brand evolved into a business around 2013, but the grind to put the 804 (Richmond. Virginia) on the map started back in the 1990’s. Everything started with hip-hop. In 1997 I had a rap group here in Richmond. Virginia was on the rise, we were actually the only rap group from Richmond to share a stage with Nas. This was around the time "It Was Written" dropped. Eventually, however the group parted ways. I put the microphone down and started promoting other artists. Coming from one of  the hardest places to "get on" from is Virginia, because support on every level…
